Book Excerpt: 
. . .How did you do that?'

Pigasov's eyes sparkled.

'I poked her in the side with an aspen stake, from behind. She did shriek, and I said to her, "Bravo, bravo! that's the voice of nature, that was a genuine shriek! Always do like that for the future!"'

Every one in the room laughed.

'What nonsense you talk, African Semenitch,' cried Darya Mihailovna. 'Am I to believe that you would poke a girl in the side with a stake!'

'Yes, indeed, with a stake, a very big stake, like those that are used in the defence of a fort.'

'Mais c'est un horreur ce que vous dites la, Monsieur,' cried Mlle. Boncourt, looking angrily at the boys, who were in fits of laughter.

'Oh, you mustn't believe him,' said Darya Mihailovna. 'Don't you know him?'

But the offended French lady could not be pacified for a long while, and kept muttering something to herself.

'You need not believe me,' continued Pigasov. . . Read More

"Rudin" is the first novel by Ivan Turgenev. Turgenev started to work on it in 1855, and it was first published in the literary magazine "Sovremennik" in 1856. For some reason that I don't know it seems to be the least known of Turgenev's novels. I would think that if you read one or two of his o...more

مدت زمانی بود که در تصوراتم به این کتاب به چشم یک بچهی زشت و عقبافتاده و حوصله سر بر نگاه میکردم و نخوانده دربارهی آن قضاوت مینمودم. تا اینکه پس از مصاحبت با آن دیدم که اصلاً این طور نیست. یک کلاسیک قشنگ و خوب روسی، اگرچه خیلی عالی و شاخص نیست. خواندن رمانهای کلاسیک (خصوصاً روسی) برای من تداعی کن...more

یک. پیروان مکتب پچورین میگویند که ما همیشه کسانی را دوست میداریم که خودشان کمتر استعداد دوست داشتن دارند.
دو. بله، طبیعت بسیاری از چیزها را در وجود من به ودیعه گذارده است. ولی من خواهم مرد بدون اینکه کار شایستهای کرده باشم، بدون اینکه اثر نیکی از خود به جا گذارده باشم. تمام ثروت معنوی من بیهوده از...more

کسی که با احساسش زیسته است
از شبح روزهایی که باز نمی گردند به اضطراب می افتد
و دیگر هیچ چیز شیفته اش نمی کند
بار خاطرات
و پشیمانی می آزاردش.

Rudin is a highly educated, well-brought up man in his 30s living in Russia. He embodies the Superfluous Man popular in Russian literature: a man of high intelligence and ideals with no action. He is, essentially, all talk and incapable of following through with his thoughts and desires. He is a...more

عشق همهچیزش مرموز است: از به وجود آمدن و بسط یافتنش گرفته تا از بین رفتنش. یا به وضوح مثل یک بامداد نشاط انگیز ناگهان تجلی میکند، یا مدتی مثل آتش زیر خاکستر سوسو میزند و همین که همهچیز تمام شد تازه راه خودش را در روح آدمی باز میکند؛ گاهی مثل ماری در قلب آدمی میخزد و گاهی دفعتا آن را رها میکند و ب...more

Sto leggendo le Memorie di un cacciatore, evento letterario russo del 1852, perché un giorno, casualmente, mi ero letto il primo romanzo di Turgenev, questo Rudin, pubblicato quattro anni dopo le Memorie, che mi era piaciuto molto e mi aveva fatto venir voglia di conoscere di più l'a...more

I was and remain in love with Turgenev’s short novels of – not ideas, exactly; not morality plays, as I used to try to describe them; at any rate, short novels that hinge on a commitment, a choice, and that emplot the questions of Turgenev’s day, or is it the question? Whether to act. How to act,...more

عالى نيست اما خوب هست، ادبيات روس خالص،معرفي ها و شخصيت ها و همه و همه سنت رايج ادبي،لذت بردم اما شگف ت زده نشدم. خيلي شبيه رمان همان هميشگي از يكي ديگر از نويسندگان روس بود كه اسمش يادم نيست. در مجموع فضاي عدم آگاهي، قدر ناشناسي رايج روسيه ي تزاري را نشان مي داد، همان اسامي پرطمطراق روسي و همان...more
