    1. My Reading Life: Or How I went from Reading Turgenev to Reading MannThe pattern of our reading lives can be as comfortable and predictable as everyday life or as creative and thought provoking as the books we read. Take my own case: I often mosey along well worn tracks quite happily, certain of finding familiar works which will be both pleasurable and rewarding. However, it can happen that an obscure detail catches my attention and before I know it, I’ve been propelled sideways onto an undisco [...]


    2. So, we are on the eve of a new day here on . We have been batting ideas back and forth about what the giant female warrior will do to our community in a similar way to Turgenev's characters who spend long paragraphs meditating on the issues of their day. Like them, some of us must be asking the question: is it better to muddle through our lives peacefully, concentrating on reading, ideas and art or should we take action? Some among us have talked about emigrating to a nearby country but the news [...]


    3. Exquisite. First, so expressive, the prose makes me swoon. And I am not a swooner (is there such a word as swooner?). Elena listened to him very attentively, and turning half towards him, did not take her eyes off his face, which had grown a little paler--off his eyes, which were soft and affectionate, though they avoided meeting her eyes. Her soul expanded, and something tender, holy, and good seemed half sinking into her heart, half springing up within it.Second, how is it a male of the 1860s [...]


    4. This was the Turgenev that spoke most directly to me when I was young, which makes for a peculiarly intense reading experience now: Yelena and Insarov are as if people known to me, I believe in them entirely; and indeed the whole novel comes alive to me in that rare way… A dangerous novel to do this with, as it is Turgenev at his most gloomy. Although he took the plot from life, he wants to use it to dash our spirits with the futility of effort – for he had these moods of pessimistic metaphy [...]



    5. BRILLIANT! Too good to be true. Tragically romantic and deep and everything else. I'm glad I have read it. OMG, I can't even start explaining how good this book is. Short, unexpected, fast-paced, intense I couldn't put it down. Unforgettable. Please, bring me more Ivan Turgenev! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

    8. On the Eve by Ivan Turgenev is a love story, the plot of which most of us today would find commonplace. When the novel first appeared, however, this story of a young upper class Russian lady falling in love with a Bulgarian revolutionary caused quite a stir among its readers.With the novel’s publication in 1861, the book’s translator Gilbert Gardiner commented in the introduction, “People argued about the heroes of the story as they might have done about the real people – their character [...]


    9. Writing a novel about love must be one of the most risky endeavors that a writer can undertake. Love is such a powerful emotion that it is easy for such novels slip into the realm of melodrama. This takes place when humans are depicted in ways that step beyond reality. It doesn't take much. The call for a duel between rivals, the admission of love one too many times, or self-pity that goes on and on are all gateways to the melodramatic. Turgenev manages to write about love in On the Eve without [...]

    11. Ah, friendship, love, idealism -- in a word, Turgenev!The "eve" in question is the start of the Crimean war. The setting, however, is provincial Russia (as usual in Turgenev's work) and the characters are a small circle of close friends. They're prone to earnest philosophical discussion. There's a slightly complex romance that drives the plot, and as might be expected things ultimately don't turn out well for the lovers. (This is, after all, a Russian novel.) If that sounds a bit pat, then let m [...]


    12. Revisited. Turgenev's short novels were second to Dostoyevsky for me, as far as Russians go (and Russians go far). Though I can see why Turgenev's despair of Russia as instanced here might have annoyed D 'Go to foreign parts'. Anyhow, never mind that. I can also see why this one spoke closely to me as a girl. Yelena is a serious girl who needs an ethical and active life, and finds a freedom fight to throw herself into -- Bulgaria from the Turks. I was always impressed by Turgenev's young women, [...]

    14. Originally published on my blog here in October 1999.Turgenev's short novel is based around a memoir written by a friend, who suggested he might like to turn it into a novel. It tells the stories of a small group of upper class teenagers in Russia on the eve of the outbreak of the Crimean War. Elena comes from a home troubled by the infidelities of her father, and this has hardly given her a taste for any kind of marriage that might be arranged by her parents. She is loved by one of a small grou [...]


    15. I struggled with this story, at the beginning. The characters were not very likable. I thought Shubin was really strange, he almost seemed like a court jester. He was silly, played leap frog with strangers he met on the street. His sculptures were rather odd, I was not sure he was serious about his art. I stayed with the story. I have read Ivan Turgenev and I knew he could write a great story. This turned into a beautiful love story. Elena was from a well to do Russian family. She met Insarnov, [...]


    16. تنشأ أحداث هذه القصة من تفاعلات ثنائي حبّ الذات والإيثار، كما تُفتَتح بمشهد شوبين المستلقي برأسه على بيرسينيف تجسيداً أولياً لهذا الثنائي المجرَّد ثم تستمرّ في سلسلة من العلاقات التي تقود أحداث القصة إلى تعقيدات أكبر.- ”أما أنا فأعتقد أن كل هدف حياتنا هو في أن نجعل أنفسنا ا [...]


    17. So, this is one of those novels for which an understanding of the historical context is essential for a full appreciation of its significance. The era is the early 1850s and Russia stands on the brink of the Crimean War as it manoeuvres to take advantage of weakening Ottoman Empire. Also standing to gain are those who dream of independence from Ottoman oppression.One such is the hero of On the Eve, Insarov, a Bulgarian who, though in Russia, makes forays back to his homeland and is part of a net [...]

    20. I was a little worried my partiality for Dostoevsky would dampen my ability to appreciate Turgenev, but those worries were dashed right at the opening of the book, On the Eve. Two friends, Berzenyev and Shubin, engage in a conversation on aesthetics in finely polished proseI was hooked. To my slight disappointment there was much less philosophical dialogue as the novel progressed into a romance. The romance itself is a veil over a passionate summons for the Russian people, an urgent plea for the [...]


    21. This read a bit like a Jane Austen in some ways. Boy meets girl, boy is a Bulgarian revolutionary, girl is from a well heeled family in Russia and stares out of the window a lot. It was a good translation though and managed to put across the story without losing the nuance too much. When one of the characters (Shubin) spoke about the lack of inspiring people in their immediate cirle it made me think of people twittering on social network sites today: '' It's all either minnows and mice and littl [...]


    22. This is a poignant tale which has the three ingredients that make Turgenev so satisfying: first, his ability to open a window into another time and place so vivid we feel we too are walking in contented companionship along the green and summery Russian river bank, or drinking champagne just as the coachman cracks his whip and the sleigh starts over the frozen snow. Second, the sunlight of the prose illuminates far more than the surface lives of the characters, but also sends shafts of illuminati [...]


    23. Wow how did I miss this amazing book all this time !. I thought I knew one or two things about Russian literature. This story has everything I ever wanted to read from a romantic novel. Couldn't have asked for more. Its so beautiful and heart warming. Don't think I've ever read another romantic Russian novel which can match its beauty. This is how love stories should be like. No cheating, no lust. Just pure love and devotion coming form understanding your partner. Yet Its a very simple story. Ha [...]


    24. "Priekšvakarā" risinās Viktorijas laikmetā (1853. g.), un tas ir stāsts par notikumu, kas maina jaunas sievietes dzīvi, par dzirksti, kas ienāk viņas dzīvē, tas ir, par iemīlēšanos. Pelēkā ikdiena tiek aizslaucīta kā nebijusi. Tomēr tas nav "viņi dzīvoja ilgi un laimīgi" stāsts. Stāsts ir par grūtībām, par atbildības uzņemšanos par savu izvēli, par savu laimi. Sižetiski neko daudz neieguvu, drīzāk apzināti lasīju, lai paplašinātu savu redzesloku krievu litera [...]


    25. It's a Russian literature book, so don't expect a happy light story.This is set just before the Crimean War begins. There is a love affair that is the main focus of the story, but war, death, and doom lurk in the background. I keep trying, but I have to admit, overall, Russian Literature doesn't do a lot for me aside from making me glad I didn't live there and then.

    27. Turgenev's writing is so crisp and his characters are always so vivid. This is very much about a particular mood at a particular point in Russian history, when there was quite a lot of uncertainty about what would happen next. So it's a perfect novel to read in 2016.
