Ivan Turgenev

Book Overview: 

Rudin is the first and perhaps least known novel by Ivan Turgenev, a famous Russian writer best known for his short stories and the novel Fathers and Sons. The story focuses on a romantic involvement between Rudin and Natalya, a serious, intelligent young woman. The topic of the “superfluous man” and his inability to act, which was a major theme of Turgenev's literary work, is explored.

Book Excerpt:

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

دنیا از آن مردمانی است که می‌دانند و می‌کنند نه از آن کسانی که شاید بهتر می‌دانند ولی نمی‌کنند

نمی‌دانم این جمله را کجا خواندم ولی در واقع بیانگر زندگانی رودین است. او نماد کسی/کسانی است که آرزوهای بسیار دارند که رویای دست‌یافتن به حقیقت را دارند و به سمتش می‌روند یا ادای به سمت رفتنش را در می‌آورند

In my opinion, it is quite noticeable that this is Turgenev's first novel due to the fact that it mainly feels like reading an unfinished work... Most of the characters fell flat, were kind of uninteresting (or rather I couldn't really connect with any of them) and it's definitely a character-d

اولین رمان "ایوان تورگینف"که در نیمه های قرن نوزدهم میلادی در نقد ونکوهش روشنفکران واندیشمندان جامعه وقت روسیه نوشته شده است.جامعه ای که روشنفکران وصاحبنظران آن شیفته خودستایی وعاشق نطقهای جذاب وپرطمطراق درمحافل و نشست های خودمانی ومجالس ومهمانی ها هستند ولی درعمل وانجام تعهد به این نظریه ها وباورها

رودین کتابی ایست خسته کننده و ملال آور از نویسنده نامدار روس ، ایوان تورگنیف . رودین که اولین کتاب اوست را شاید بتوان به عنوان اثری ناقص و ضد و نقیض دید ، کتاب را نه می توان در نکوهش و نه در ستایش شخصیت رودین دانست ، رودین که نماینده مردمانی ایست که تنها حرف می زنند و اهل عمل نیستند .

A fragrant mist lay like a soft shroud over the garden; a drowsy scent breathed from the trees near. The stars shed a mild radiance. The summer night was soft – and softened all.

Nabokov, with his usual sharpness, said about Turgenev that his storytelling was lame and tha

Unii critici literari au insinuat că Rudin este întîiul „om de prisos” prezentat într-o carte. Nu prea cred. E plină literatura de oameni pe cît de geniali, tot pe atîta de inutili.

Romanul lui Turgheniev devine obositor prin faptul că naratorul știe tot (e omniscient, cum ar veni, ca și naratorul l

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
