A House of Gentlefolk

Book cover
Famous work by Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev, a Russian novelist, dramatist, and short-story writer, considered to be the founder of the Russian realistic novel. He was the author whose unexceptionable literary skill correlates with not less unexceptionable knowledge of human soul. Turgenev enriched Russian literature with the most fascinating women’s characters and wonderful, poetical descriptions of nature. “A House of Gentlefolk” is one of the most subtle and sad novels of the author. This is a beautiful story of love, broken hopes and complicated life of a brilliant clever man, who made a tragic mistake one day and is forced to pay for it during his entire life. In the centre of the narration a tragic love story of Lisa and Lavretsky: the heroes meet each other, fall in love, but unable to accept the feeling. During a short period of time they experience both hope for happiness and despair, understanding that it is impossible. They are looking for answers for questions life asks them – of personal happiness, of responsibility for people, of self-denial and place in life.
