There is no sentimentality in Konchalovsky's treatment of these aristrocrats - he understands the ambivalence in Fyodor's love for the outside world and his boyhood way of life, and he makes us care about these fading symbols of a milieu that had to pass away. Even before Vronsky and Oblonsky came back, the ladies had learned these details from the butler. Lenotchka, Shurotchka, an orphan girl, ward of Marfa. On one level the novel is about the homecoming of Lavretsky, who, broken and disillusioned by a failed marriage, returns to his estate and finds love again - only to lose it. High overhead in the clear heavens small rosy clouds seemed hardly to move across the sky but to be sinking into its depths of blue.

I've realized what it is that I like about Turgenev. Such a class glories in the very conquering and desiring celebrated by Pinsky. Laveretsky's severe maiden aunt is often thought to be based on Turgenev's own mother who was known for her cruelty. A short novel of finely observed characters, who are caught in a time of such great change that the different generations might be measured in a decade rather than the usual quarter-century. Mi impresión es la de haber leído una historia sencilla y convincente, pero contada de una manera poco ortodoxa. Soon after the Lyngbya dies and is washed onto the mangroves and shores. The little bird and I are official tag-alongs.

Turgenev seduces the reader with the languorus beauty of the Russian summer in the evry first, luminously suggestive sentence. Serfs and nobles, and how they interacted and addressed each other in the remote fastnesses of the steppes; an endless fascination with Europe, a flirtation with Paris and the French language as a means of communication; religion and revolution — these are all familiar themes and tropes in the work of Turgenev. The older I get, the more I love Turgenev, and appreciate him vis-a-vis his contemporaries in the arena of the 19th-century Russian novel. A Month in the Country is undoubtedly his best-known play. I note that my first experience with Turgenev was his where I comment that the prose is beautiful - and for some reason I did not note the translator there either.
