About the Book

"Smoke" by Ivan Sergeevich Turgenev is a poignant novel that explores the complexities of love, society, and self-discovery in 19th-century Russia. As a seminal work of Russian literature, Turgenev's novel delves into the lives of its characters with profound insight and sensitivity, capturing the essence of the human condition amidst a backdrop of social and political upheaval. At its core, "Smoke" is a powerful exploration of love and longing, as the protagonist, Grigory Litvinov, navigates the complexities of his romantic relationships and confronts the societal expectations that threaten to stifle his individuality. Through richly drawn characters and evocative prose, Turgenev masterfully depicts the tensions between tradition and modernity, rural and urban life, and the struggle for personal freedom in a rapidly changing world. As a work of literary fiction, "Smoke" transcends its historical context to offer timeless insights into the human experience. Turgenev's keen observations and nuanced portrayal of human nature make "Smoke" a compelling read for audiences seeking to explore the depths of emotion, psychology, and societal critique in literature.

About Author

Ivan Sergeevich Turgenev

Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev, a Russian novelist, short story writer, poet, dramatist, translator, and proponent of Russian literature in the West, lived from 9 November 1818 to 3 September 1883. Russia's Oryol is where Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev was born. His father fought in the Patriotic War of 1812 as a colonel in the Russian cavalry. Turgenev concentrated on Classics, Russian literature, and philology while attending the University of Saint Petersburg from 1834 to 1837 after spending a year at the University of Moscow. Turgenev never wed, but he had many relationships with the family's serfs, one of which gave birth to his daughter Paulinette, who was not his biological child. Oxford conferred an honorary degree on Turgenev in 1879. Turgenev periodically traveled to England, and the University of Oxford awarded him an honorary doctorate in civil law in 1879. Throughout his later years, Turgenev's health deteriorated. An aggressive malignant tumor (liposarcoma) was surgically removed from his suprapubic area in January 1883, but by that time the tumor had spread to his upper spinal cord, giving him excruciating suffering in the months before his death. In his home in Bougival, close to Paris, on September 3, 1883, Turgenev passed away from a spinal abscess, a side effect of metastatic liposarcoma. His bones were transported to Russia and interred at St. Petersburg's Volkovo Cemetery.
