The publication of Fathers and Sons brought forth storms of controversy that were unprecedented even in a country used to taking its literature seriously. In this novel, Turgenev penetrated to the very roots of the basic conflict between the revolutionary spirit and the absolute monarchy. He not only dramatized the most important issue of his time, but also heralded one of the most tumultuous periods in his country's history.
