Fathers and Sons is a novel by Ivan Turgenev, and vies with A Nest of Gentlefolk for the repute of being his best novel.

Arkady Kirsanov has just graduated from the University of Petersburg and returns with a friend, Bazarov, to his father's modest estate in an outlying province of Russia. His father, Nikolai, gladly receives the two young men at his estate, called Maryino, but Nikolai's brother, Pavel, soon becomes upset by the strange new philosophy called "nihilism" which the young men, especially Bazarov advocate.

Nikolai, initially delighted to have his son return home, slowly begins to feel uneasy, and a certain awkwardness in his regard, as it emerges that Arkady's views, much influenced by Bazarov, are radical and make his own beliefs feel dated. Nikolai has always tried to stay as current as possible, by doing things such as visiting his son at school so the two can stay as close as they are, but this in Nikolai's eyes has failed. To complicate this, the father has taken a servant, Fenechka, into his house to live with him and has already had a son by her. Arkady however is not troubled by the relationship: to the contrary, he openly celebrates the acquisition of a younger brother.

The two young men stay over at Maryino for some weeks, then decide to visit a relative of Arkady's in a neighboring province. There, they observe the local gentry and meet Madame Anna Sergevna Odintsova, an elegant woman of independent means, who cuts a seductively different figure from the pretentious or humdrum types of her surrounding provincial society of gentry. Both are attracted to her, and she, intrigued by Bazarov's singular manner, invites them to spend a few days at her estate, Nikolskoe. While Bazarov at first feels nothing for Anna, Arkady fall head over heels in love with her.

    È stato uno scrittore e drammaturgo russo. Fu amico di Flaubert, Zola e Auerbach; il suo romanzo Padri e figli è considerato uno dei capolavori della narrativa del XIX secolo per l'analisi della struttura familiare russa della sua epoca e dei rapporti interpersonali al suo interno. Compì gli studi filosofici a San Pietroburgo, dove entrò in contatto con il mondo letterario allora dominato da Puškin e Gogol’. Nel 1838 si recò a Berlino, attratto dai circoli hegeliani. Dal 1845 si dedicò completamente all’attività letteraria. Fu lo scrittore russo più conosciuto e apprezzato in Europa occidentale nella seconda metà dell’Ottocento. Tra le sue opere: Andrej Kolosov (1844), Pane altrui (1848), Le memorie... Approfondisci
