Michael R. Katz’s acclaimed translation of Turgenev’s greatest novel is again the basis for this Norton Critical Edition.

The English rendition of the title of this novel has been problematic since the book’s publication in 1862. In his prefatory note to the Second Edition, Katz explains his decision to return to the original title, the one preferred by the author himself: Ottsy i deti, literally “Fathers and Children.”

The novel is accompanied by a rich selection of Turgenev’s letters that illustrate his involvement in the critical controversy that surrounded the publication of Fathers and Children. Four of the most significant critiques of the day―by Dmitry Pisarev, Nikolai Strakhov, Apollon Grigorev, and Alexander Herzen―further enhance the reader’s understanding of this critical firestorm.

Twenty-three critical essays―seven of which are new to the Second Edition―are organized around several themes: the issue of translation; politics, including Turgenev’s liberalism, his view of revolution, and his attitude toward nihilism; and various literary aspects, including Turgenev’s use of imagery, generational conflict, the role of women, and the growing impact of science on society.

A Chronology of Tolstoy’s life and work and an updated Selected Bibliography are also included.

From the Publisher:

Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.

From the Back Cover:

The character of Barzarov, the radical intellectual, moves like a storm cloud through this sensuous, beautifully paced account of provincial Russia in the period just before the Great Emancipation of the serfs in 1861. Turgenev's greatest literary creation is as compelling and as enigmatic as the country whose passions he so vividly represents.
