Turgenev is an author who no longer belongs to Russia only. During the last fifteen years of his life he won for himself the reading public, first in France, then in Germany and America, and finally in England. In his funeral oration the spokesman of the most artistic and critical of European nations, Ernest Renan, hailed him as one of the greatest writers of our times: 'The Master, whose exquisite works have charmed our century, stand more than any other man as the incarnation of the whole race,' because 'a whole world lived in him and spoke through his mouth.' Rudin is the first of Turgenev's social novels, and is a sort of artistic introduction to those that follow, because it refers to the epoch anterior to that when the present social and political movements began. This epoch is being fast forgotten, and without his novel it would be difficult for us to fully realise it, but it is well worth studying, because we find in it the germ of future growths. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.… (altro)

It is debatable whether we should read a novel entirely for its own merit, even disregarding the intention of the author, while it is questionable how much a reader twice removed could make of a classical novel, written nearly 200 years ago, and belonging to an entirely different age, and entirely different culture. The significance of Turgenev's first novel, Rudin (1855) might even be difficult for Russian readers to grasp.

Without reading the introduction or any other literary criticism, Rudin would appear merely a stiff novella. Where the novels of Dostoyevsky still appeal to universal sentiment or character, the early novels of Turgenev are novels of manner. Rudin surely can be read as a short, failed love story, the main character Rudin being more of an anti-hero than a hero. However, as the introduction explains, the reader can make more of the novel when it is understood that in Rudin Turgenev portrays a type rather than an individual character, a cultural phenomenon rather than a tragic hero. Rudin exemplifies a certain type of man of his time, a personification of the ills of Russian society at that time. It is this added dimension which enable us to see Rudin as a tragic figure.

Nonetheless, Rudin remains a somewhat stifled short novel, and the long, difficult Russian names of relatively many characters add to the reading difficulty. Readable, but not very enjoyable. ( )

Just as with Steve McQueen in 'The Great Escape', we have to wait until a quarter of the story has been told before we meet Rudin, the eponymous protagonist and all-round flawed hero. But the scene is completely stolen by the supporting cast; you finish the book almost wondering if Rudin had been necessary to begin with. ( )

Turgenev’s first novel, Rudin, is another ‘superfluous man’ story, with Rudin representing a “man of the 1840’s”, sensing change was necessary, but having difficulty fitting in and being a productive member of society. Rudin rejects the outright nihilism and misogyny in Pigasov (who perhaps represents a “man of the 1860’s, and a cruder version of Bazarov), but is a failure because he cannot live up to the philosophies he studies and talks so eruditely about. The love interests and Pigasov are somewhat interesting, but the novel is not fully developed enough to recommend to anyone other than a hardcore Turgenev fan.

Quotes:
On regret:
“There’s no harder thing in the world than being aware of your own recent stupidity.”

And this one, actually quoting Pushkin’s Eugene Onegin:
“Whoe’er has felt will feel alarmed
By phantoms of the days long gone…
There are not fascinations left for him,
Already the serpent of remembering,
The pangs of conscience will be gnawing him…”

On transience:
“’I remember a Scandinavian legend,’ he said in conclusion. ‘A king is sitting with his warriors in a long, dark hall, around a fire. It takes place at night, in winter. Suddenly a small bird flies in through one open door and out at another. The king remarks that the little bird is like a man in this world: it flew out of the darkness and back into the darkness again, and did not stay long in the warmth and light…’Oh, king,’ the eldest warrior objects, ‘the little bird will not lose itself in the dark but will find its nest.’ It is just like our life on earth that is so fleeting and insignificant; but everything great on earth is accomplished only by men. For man the awareness of being the instrument of these higher powers must take the place of all other joys: in death itself man will find his life, his nest…’” ( )

2329 Rudin A Novel, by Ivan Turgenev translated from the Russian by Constance Garnett (read 29 Sep 1990) In view of my enthusiastic enjoyment of Home of the Gentry, I expected to like this book. However I found it stiff and not too exciting. Dmitri Rudin is 35, and declares his love for Natalya, a 17-year-old. Her mother forbids the match. Rudin says "we must submit," to Natalya's dismay. Natalya eventually marries Sergei Volintsev--and Rudin wanders about, and dies on a Paris barricade in 1849. This book was a disappointment after my enjoyment of Home of the Gentry. ( )
