Product Overview

Unlike his contemporaries, Dostoyevsky and Tolstoy, Ivan Turgenev (1818 1883) has until recently received less than his fair share of attention from Western scholars. This comprehensive examination of Turgenevs fiction begins by outlining the writers life and sketching his personality. It provides a brief survey of his poetry and plays as the prelude to the fiction and reviews some aspects of his literary criticism in their bearing upon it. The main body of the book is devoted to readings of the individual works - A Sportsmans Sketches, the novels and all the stories. Professor Seeley focuses principally on the complexity and subtlety of Turgenevs portrayal of the psychology of his characters - a hitherto neglected aspect of his art. His approach challenges traditional views still current in the critical literature of both the East and the West. The book has been designed to be accessible not only to Slavists, but also to scholars and students of other literatures. *Author: Seeley, Frank Friedeberg *Series Title: Cambridge Studies in Russian Literature *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 396 *Publication Date: 2010/08/01 *Language: English *Dimensions: 8.50 x 5.50 x 0.88 inches
