Turgenev’s masterpiece became a reference point by which many Russian nihilists and anarchists measured their political commitments. The novel’s central figure Bazarov represents Turgenev’s assessment of the ideals and objectives of the radical intelligentsia and testifies to the intergenerational conflicts of the day. We will read the New York Review of Books Classics edition.

[Please Note: This is a new translation which titles the book Fathers and Children; that title happens to be more accurate than the traditional title Fathers and Sons, but it is still the same novel – don’t worry about buying the wrong copy when you see how it’s listed.]
