FROM THE PUBLISHER -

   On the eve of Alexander II's great reforms, in an atmosphere of uncertainty and anticipation, Turgenev began work on his fourth novel, in FATHERS AND SONS the author planned to portray a new type of hero, a 'nihilist,' who would represent the values of the younger generation. Set at a very specific Moment in history, the novel reveals the full breadth of nineteenth-century Russia. Michael Katz presents Turgenev's greatest and ultimately most important novel in a beautifully rendered, finely tuned new translation. it captures a world on the brink of change, subtle psychological confrontations among powerful fictional characters, and the gracefulness of the author's poetic imagination. This new version of FATHERS AND SONS will be welcomed by general readers and scholars alike.
