Natalya Petrovna is bewildered by her emotions when she falls in love with the young tutor engaged to teach her son. When she realizes, however, that she has a rival in her ward, Verochka, she attempts to engineer the girl's marriage to another. Turgenev's tragic comedy is a remarkably acute study of the absurdity of romantic love and one of the great classics of Russian theater. This new translation, specially commissioned for the World's Classics series, is accompanied by a full and up-to-date editorial apparatus.

Review:

Comedy in three acts by Ivan Turgenev, published in 1855 and first produced professionally in 1872 as Mesyats v derevne. The play concerns complications that ensue when Natalya, a married woman, and Vera, her young ward, both fall in love with Belyayev, the naive young tutor of Natalya's son. Considered Turgenev's dramatic masterpiece, the work presaged the psychological realism of Anton Chekhov's plays. -- The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature
