Publishers Description: When a young graduate returns home he is accompanied, much to his father and uncles discomfort, by a strange friend "who doesnt acknowledge any authorities, who doesnt accept a single principle on faith." Turgenevs masterpiece of generational conflict shocked Russian society when it was published in 1862 and continues today to seem as fresh and outspoken as it did to those who first encountered its nihilistic hero.This new translation, specially commissioned for the Oxford Worlds Classics, is the first to draw on Turgenevs working manuscript, which only came to light in 1988. About the Series: For over 100 years Oxford Worlds Classics has made available the broadest spectrum of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxfords commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, voluminous notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.
