Ivan Turgenev books


Ivan Turgenev (1818 - 1883) was a Russian author who was born in Orel. He was educated at the University of Moscow, University of St. Petersburg, and the University of Berlin. Following his time in Berlin Ivan Turgenev returned to St. Petersburg in 1840. It was at this time that he began to protest against the mistreatment of serfs in Russia. Much of his later works exhibit his passion for this cause. While working as a government clerk he began to devote increasingly more time to writing, and in 1843 his first poem titled Parasha was published. Following his mother's death in 1850 he inherited the family fortune and released all of the serfs who had served his family.

In the following years Ivan Turgenev became more established in Russian literature, and much of his success can be attributed to the collection of short stories titled A Sportsman's Sketches. These were a series of stories about Russian peasant life during the period. Shortly after his early success as an author Ivan Turgenev began to travel and live abroad. Eventually he settled near Paris, France, where he later died in 1883.
