        Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev Cyrillic was a novelist, poet and dramatist, and now ranks as one of the towering figures of Russian literature His major works include the short story collection A Sportsman s Sketches 1852 and the novels Rudin 1856 , Home of the Gentry 1859 , On the Eve 1860 , and Fathers and Sons 1862 These works offer realistic, affectionate portrayals of the Russian peasantry and penetrating studies of the Russian intelligentsia who were attempting to move the country into a new age His masterpiece, Fathers and Sons, is considered one of the greatest novels of the nineteenth century Turgenev was a contemporary with Fyodor Dostoevsky and Leo Tolstoy While these wrote about church and religion, Turgenev was concerned with the movement toward social reform.


    1. This short story explores the complexity of love, its raptures and tormenting effects on the heart of an inexperienced young man of sixteen, Vladimir, who spends the summer of 1833 in a cottage nearby the Neskuchni gardens in the outskirts of Moscow.Who doesn’t remember falling in love for the first time? Trying to put into words the rush of contradictory emotions, the awakening of desire tangled with the insecurities of youth and the loss of the innocence of childhood is like trying to descri [...]

    2. Not my kind of "love" story.UNUSUAL FIRST RUSSIAN LOVEIvan Turgenev was the first Russian writer to become popular and successful in Europe, even way way WAY before of Dostoyevsky and Tolstoy,, thanks to that Turgenev left Russia and he was living several years in different countries of Europe, but still, it’s undeniable that due the impact of his novels and short stories, that European and American readers became interested to read other authors from Russia, getting better the chances to Dost [...]

    3. ‘That’s love,’ I said to myself again, as I sat at night before my writing-table, on which books and papers had begun to make their appearance; ‘that’s passion! . . . To think of not revolting, of bearing a blow from any one whatever . . . even the dearest hand! But it seems one can, if one loves . . . While I . . . I imagined . . . ’ (Garnett's translation.)‘That’s what love is’, I told myself again, sitting at night in front of my desk on which books and notebooks had begun t [...]

    4. Oh, sweet emotions, gentle harmony, goodness and peace of the softened heart, melting bliss of the first raptures of love, where are they, where are they? Vladimir Petrovich, "a man of forty, with black hair turning gray." sits on an evening, after a good meal, with a couple of old friends, sipping the port and drawing on a good cigar. They challenge each other to tell the stories of their first time falling in love. It's a common framing device now, this looking back at the folly of youth with [...]

    5. Recently I have found myself drawn to novels about looking back to the past, about nostalgia and youth. I guess it is a sign that I am getting older or perhaps it is a consequence of the tough time I have been having in my personal life, where, without going into too many details, death has been on the agenda quite a lot. I find myself currently feeling highly emotional, over sensitive, and sentimental. Just yesterday, in fact, I was flicking through Alain-Fournier’s beautiful French novel Le [...]

    6. Pretextul literar al romanului este deja bine întipărit în conştiinţa colectivă a cititorului: după o petrecere copioasă, la ora 12 noaptea, mai rămân trei "drojdieri" şi propun să-şi istorisească fiecare povestea primei iubiri. Primii doi o relatează succint. Pentru unul prima lui iubire e actuală lui soţie, iar pentru celălalt, fusese doica lui. Această prima scenă -prologul- constituie cadrul viitoarei povestiri. Vladimir Petrovici are o poveste de iubire "mai altfel", dar [...]

    7. قصة مأساوية - وصف تورجنيف لصبي يبلغ من العمر ستة عشر عاما يقع في الحب لأول مرةالصراع الأساسي في الرواية، لم يكن بين المحب ومحبوبته بل بين المحب وأبيهفالولد أحب فتاة تكبره في السن بخمس سنوات بينما هي أحبت أبيه و أحبهامأساة سوداوية في قصة قصيرة عبقرية من كاتب متميز جدا

    8. I like Turgenev's style. It's softer, more subtle than some of his fellow 19th century Russian writers. He doesn't beat you over the head with a message. This story, as it's title suggests, is about the first love of 16 year old Vladimir, the son of a wealthy Russian family, who falls in love with the 21 year old daughter of their new neighbors. She is a princess, her family with a noble name but without wealth. She leads Vladimir along, and several other young suitors besides, but she's in love [...]

    9. "I? Believe me, Zinaida Alexandrovna, whatever you did, however you tormented me, I should love and adore you to the end of my days."This novella is about a 16-y/o Russian boy, Vladimir Petrovich of a rich family falling in love for the first time. The object of his affection is a 21-y/o princess, Zinaida Alexandrovna who has just moved to Vladimir's neighborhood. Zinaida's family used to be rich but her father squandered everything because of his vices. Zinaida is beautiful so she has many suit [...]

    10. When you're young you think you're the Romeo of every story, but sometimes it turns out you're barely Paris. Turgenev's novella captures not only the ecstatic shamelessness of first love, but the fogginess of being young in general - that feeling of not understanding the action you're taking part in. 16-year-old Vladimir believes he's competing with other suitors for the affection of his beautiful 21-year-old neighbor Zinaida. Turgenev slowly unveils the real affair. This was my first Turgenev; [...]

    11. Oh, I do like how Turgenev writes. He gets to the core of characters. You understand who they are, why each one acts as they do. He also has great ability to draw a place so it comes alive and you see it , feel it and almost smell it. Like a park at night. and what Vladimir discovered that night!Back track: this is about a sixteen year-old's first love. (Do you recall yours?!) He falls head over heels for a self-centered, manipulative, pretty girl. She knows she is pretty and she has her own age [...]

    12. "Que resultou de tudo isso de tudo o que eu esperava? E agora, quando as sombras da noite começam a fechar-se sobre a minha vida, que me resta que seja mais puro, mais querido, que as recordações dessa breve tempestade, que chegou e partiu tão rapidamente, numa manhã de Primavera?" (Ilustração de Anna e Elena Balbusso)

    13. kebetulan, saat buku ini baru kubaca setengahnya, aku mendengarkan sebuah presentasi mengenai gender di kelaslompok ini mempresentasikan buku yang diangkat dari tesis dosen mata kuliah ini juga. Buku ini berisi analisis sebuah drama karya Arifin C. Noer yang berjudul Drama Mega-mega (ugh, ingatanku begitu buruk). Drama tersebut bercerita tentang seorang perempuan bernama Mae yang menjadi ibu bagi gelandangan-gelandangan di sekitarnya. Mae sendiri merupakan janda yang telah menikah dan ditinggalk [...]

    14. برای امثال من این جور داستان های رومانتیک جذابیتی ندارن - به درد همون دوران رومانتیسم می خورن که دخترا از حیث فرهنگی عقب مانده [/نگه داشته شده ] بودن و اسکل بودن یا شرارتشون می شد منشأ لذت شعرا و نویسندگان؛ اونم دائم در بحبوحه ی جشن ها و بزم های اشرافی. "عشق اول" که آبکی ترینشون بو [...]

    15. چطور؟؟ چطور؟؟ واقعا چه طور این نویسندگان روس می تونن چنین شخصیت هایی بپردازن؟؟واقعا توان شخصیت پردازی این ادبیات عجیب و نفس گیرهواقعا عالیه کتابهای ادبیات روس در زمینه شخصیت پردازی عااالی ان

    16. En başından zaten olayın nasıl gideceğini az çok tahmin ediyorsunuz; ancak size zevk veren olayın gidişatı değil, anlatımı. Bana yer yer Babalar ve Oğulları anımsattığını da söylemeden geçmeyeyim.

    17. First Love begins as a frame story; three middle-aged gentleman sitting around after dinner get the idea to ask each other about their first experience of love. One man's story involves his childhood nanny (nonsexual). The second man is still married to his first love. The third gent, Vladimir Petrovich, agrees to write down his story and read it to them in a fortnight. The novella ends with the end of his story, and the "frame" conceit is not resumed.Vladimir's first love happens when he is 16, [...]

    18. I think the two things I was reminded from this novella is the reminder that life will not wait for us and that often we hurt the ones we love the most. An impassioned tale of first love and unrequited love in its truest form. What seems obvious to the reader comes as a great shock to the main character as he learns of the identity of the lover of the woman he most desires. I think it is fair to say that even in 1860 Russia a common theme in life is not noticing the faults in those you care for [...]

    19. عشق بزرگترين موهبت زندگی ست، و نخستین عشق چنان مقامی دارد که خاطرۀ لذت بخش آن همواره با انسان باقی میماند. تورگنیف در داستان نخستين عشق، با گوشه چشمی به روانشناسی، ماجرا را بازمیگوید

    20. In this beautiful short novel, Turgenev creates within the reader the selfsame titular feeling—that diabolical mixture of hope, frustration, anxiety, and inevitable heart break—that visits on many of us in the guise of our first love. Perhaps, there's something to be said of reading this novel in spring (or whatever change in the weather precipitated your own first romantic embranglement). Additionally, my hat is permanently off to Sergey Rachmaninov for providing the perfect soundtrack in h [...]

    21. "¡Oh, juventud! ¡Juventud! Nada te importa, parece que eres la dueña de todos los tesoros del universo, hasta la tristeza te distrae, hasta la pena te embellece; eres presuntuosa y atrevida, tú dices: ¡sólo yo vivo, mírenme! y no te das cuenta de que tus días corren y desaparecen sin dejar huella y sin ser contados, y todo en ti se derrite, como la cera al sol, como la nieve Y quizá todo el secreto de tu encanto no resida en la facultad que tienes de alcanzarlo todo, sino en la facultad [...]

    22. این کتابو از کتابخونه دوباره گرفتم ولی به محض خوندن فهمیدم قبلا خوندمش - در مجموعه ای منتشره توسط فرهنگ معاصر با همین مترجم به اسم "عشق اول و دو داستان دیگر" - برای همین فقط مرورش کردم دوباره. تو این بار خوندنش حس کردم داستان آسیا برای من جذابه و جانکاه. خلاصه اینکه تف به این روزگ [...]

    23. "Hijo mío -me escribía-, teme el amor de una mujer, teme esa dicha, ese veneno" A primera vista, el argumento de Primer Amor no parece demasiado original: Vladimir Petrovich, en medio de una reunión con viejos amigos, decide evocar el recuerdo de su trágico primer enamoramiento adolescente, que por supuesto simboliza su transformación de niño ingenuo y despreocupado en adulto. Una historia vista muchas veces. Lo que sigue es realmente maravilloso. Turgenev es un maestro para crear personaj [...]

    24. کتابی بود از ایوان تورگینف و سومین کتابی که از این نویسنده میخوانم در این داستان عشق و هیجان و احساسات و جوانی و هوس کاملا تحقیر شده بود عقل و منطق مطالعه و شعور مورد ستایش قرار گرفته بود به نظرم داستان پند آمیزی بود که همیشه میتواند جوانها رو از دام هوس و هیجان و. اتلاف وقت دور [...]

    25. Renamed first CrushAs far as classics go, maybe I am just a little too much of the modern mind to appreciate this book. Having read this book, it's title First Love seems a little to strong for the relationship our main protagonist and narrator, Vladimir Petrovich, recounts in this novella. Love, the multifaceted, driver of the heart is a deep and complex master. It is composed of many aspects. It takes on many forms. But this simply was not it. Maybe in 1860, the year of this novellas first pri [...]

    26. এক কথায়, অপূর্ব। নাম-ধাম দেখে ন্যাকা প্রেমের গল্প মনে হতে পারে, পড়া শুরু করে মনে হতে পারে এত প্যানপ্যানানি কেন? কিন্তু একটু ধৈর্য্য ধরলে মেওয়া ফলে। যেই গল্প শুরু হয়েছিল হালকা চটুল মেজাজে - জার [...]

    27. Ivan Turgenev's story was a linear and controlled exploration of being in love at a young age. It offered a portrait of a transition from youth to adulthood: from the confusion and giddy puzzlement that accompanied the raw feelings of youth to a more luminous perception of reality as one gained more experience. The protagonist was a sixteen-year-old student, a young man of middle class background. The object of his affection was a young princess, his senior by a few years, who, with her mother, [...]
