  • Henry Avila

    Just another sad love storyybe. But not as written by the Russian master, author Ivan Turgenev a glimpse into the human mind, a dense jungle with meandering rivers flowing in different directions to who knows where, it ends someday.

    Introduction--Home of the GentryNotes

  • Fernando

    Nido de nobles es una novela escrita por Iván Turgueniev en 1859. El concepto argumental gira en torno al típico triángulo amoroso que se estilaba en demasía en esa época, mediados del siglo XIX, tanto en Rusia como en Europa. Turgueniev, es un renombrado escritor para mí un poco a la sombra de los grandes novelistas rusos con los que compartió su tiempo literario y creo que más allá de contar con títulos muy importantes como “Padres e hijos”, “Aguas Primaverales”, “Relatos d [...]

  • Andrei Tamaş

    "Un cuib de nobili" este un roman care emană melancolie. O boală contagioasă. Paginile sale descriu prima iubire a unui tânăr nobil rus, o iubire care -pentru el- începe cu capul în nori și, psihic, se termină cu capul de toți pereții. Câteva pasaje care ar surprinde cel mai bine melancolia: 1. În inimă am noi simțăminte rare, Din suflet soarta pruncul nu mi-a smuls, Mi-am ars icoanele din sanctuare, Iar azi mă-nchin la tot ce-am ars demult. 2. Eu și cei ca mine, bătrânii, av [...]

    Las pocas novelas de Turgueniev que leí reúnen estructuras y recurrencias dramáticas muy similares. Siempre la naturaleza, siempre la presencia digna de los mujiks y siervos, la influencia de la cultura francesa y alemana, etc. Y sin embargo, no me canso de leerlo. He vuelto sobre este párrafo bellísimo, la declaración de principios de Lisa, la heroína sublime -No, tía mía –profirió-, no hable usted así; estoy decidida; he rezado, he pedido consejo a Dios; todo ha acabado; ha acabad [...]

  • Sotiris Karaiskos

    Another wonderful book of Ivan Turgenev that combines the reflection on the present and the future of Russia of that time and its relationship with the West with a very beautiful love story. The first he manages to do it in a simple way, through the main story and the parallel with it, without long discourses that extend into many pages. So the writer brings us his thoughts in a way that is accessible and comprehensible. The second, which is the most important, he begins to do it by introducing [...]

    “Che cosa pensarono, che cosa sentirono entrambi? Chi può saperlo? Chi può dirlo? Ci sono dei momenti nella vita, dei sentimenti… che si possono soltanto indicare – per poi passare oltre.”Se il talento di Turgenev si potesse imbottigliare in una sola espressione, direi che quel “passare oltre” è sufficientemente riassuntivo della sua poetica. I miei personaggi sono troppo infelici e non voglio dilungarmi sui modi della loro infelicità? Passiamo oltre. La genealogia che sto dando [...]

  • Teresa

    Primer acercamiento a la literatura clásica rusa para mi y me ha encantado. Hay momentos que parece que no pasa nada pero si pasa y mucho, todo envuelto de un ambiente de lo más melancólico.

  • Elizabeth (Alaska)

    Of course, I knew I wanted to get back to him, but I had forgotten how much I enjoy Turgenev. The edition I read was included in The Works Of Ivan Turgenieff and unfortunately the translator is not named there. I say unfortunately, because I would avoid this translator in the future if I knew who it was. I note that my first experience with Turgenev was his Fathers and Sons where I comment that the prose is beautiful - and for some reason I did not note the translator there either. No matter, be [...]

    به تازگی و بعد از پدران و پسران کتاب دیگری از تورگینف خواندم به نام آشایانه اشراف٫‌ به نظرم کتاب عمیق و پخته ای بود که تورگینف آن را با حوصه و به آهستگی نوشته است هیچ چیز اضافی یا تملقی در متن کتاب نبود و تورگینف نمیخواست بی جهت مسایل را بزرگ یا کوچک کند شاید این سبک بدون تکلف در [...]

  • Julie Bozza

    Excellent. A short novel of finely observed characters, who are caught in a time of such great change that the different generations might be measured in a decade rather than the usual quarter-century. The setting and ways of life are also nicely observed, so that the reader gets a real feel for Russian life at the time and how it contrasts with European life.The two main characters - Liza and Lavretsky - are terrific, and provide interesting arguments on behalf of Russia, even if not everything [...]

  • Lavinia

    Rather interesting than captivating. After 50 pages it was quite predictable he will fall for her and for a while I had the feeling I was reading the Russian version of "Pride and prejudice", but thank goodness it wasn't so. I am a fan of happy endings but I swear, if this one ended happily I wouldn't have read Turgenev again.Turgenev has an interesting way of setting his work, maybe I'll get into details after finishing Fathers and Sons.***Interesting fact: in 1979, a Russian discovered an aste [...]

    تورگنیف از کودکی به واسطه سفر با خانواده و بعدها به جهت تحصیل و زندگی، با اروپا و سبک زندگی غربی آشنایی داشته، شاید به همین خاطر است که در این کتاب خبری از داستان کلاسیک روسی نیست. نویسنده موجز و سرراست سخن می‌گوید، به‌دور از توصیف‌های ملال‌آوری که در کلاسیک‌های روسی می‌بی [...]

    (Out of the box I must state here that I read this novel in Russian, and not the edition listed above).The older I get, the more I love Turgenev, and appreciate him vis-a-vis his contemporaries in the arena of the 19th-century Russian novel. His tone and diction seem flawless to me, and he exercises consistent good taste and restraint in all aspects of his creative writing. He embraces his own Francophile tendencies, while at the same time highlighting the incongruities of transplanting French c [...]

    Originally published on my blog here in May 1998.This is the novel which made Turgenev's name outside Russia. The Russian title, Dvoranskoye gnezdo, has connotations of "Nest" rather than "Home", but there isn't really an easy way to translate that into English. The novel is really about Russia, perhaps even more so than is the case with most Russian novels. It deals with the relationship between the aristocracy and the land, and the way that the true Russian returns to his native country, no ma [...]

    13 APR 2014 -- A quiet short story which seems to have much to say. 19 APR 2014 -- now that the backstory is complete, the story is more interesting. Yesterday, Good Friday, I accomplished no reading. Today, Saturday, I am likely to finish the story. The Boy is meeting up with friends for an afternoon of paintball revelry. I will have a few hours with nothing to do but read whilst waiting for him. Tough; isn't it? 19 APR 2014 -- another big thanks to both Dagny and Karen for introducing me to th [...]

    I've realized what it is that I like about Turgenev. Granted, his books are all pretty much the same (though this is a charge you could aim at a lot of writers) and kind of predictable, yet there's just something really enjoyable about reading them. There's a sort of gentleness and kindness, tempered by a sadness, that pervades them, plus he has a lovely prose style. I don't think he's necessarily ever written an all-time classic, yet I find myself reading him more often than other writers who I [...]

  • Elena Druță

    Am rămas puțin dezamăgită; e prima carte scrisă de Turgenev pe care o citesc și am auzit numai lucruri bune legate de stilul acestuia și cărțile lui dar Un cuib de nobili nu m-a mișcat. Nici măcar puțin; personaje seci și acțiune lentă, plină de cuvinte multe și care m-au plictisit.

  • Paul Jellinek

    Turgenev at his best. Beautifully rendered prose with the most penetrating descriptions of both his characters and the world they inhabit.

  • Perry Whitford

    A nobleman and landowner named Ivan Lavretsky returns to Russia after leaving his faithless wife in France, only to fall in love with a beautiful and pious cousin, Elizaveta Kalitin.When Ivan learns by a newspaper article that his wife is suspected to have died, the way seems clear for him to find happiness with Liza. But her mother, Marya, is much taken with her daughter's other suitor, the cultured Panshin.This is a remarkably thoughtful and unassuming story, but it weaves a wonderful spell. T [...]

  • Guillermo Gonca

    "Nido de farsantes" o "Nido de hipócritas" tendría que ser Me parece que el título de esta novela rusa es decididamente una ironía, ya que el hogar en donde se suceden los acontecimientos no parece generar demasiada hidalguía ni nobleza; la mayoría de los seres que ahí se desenvuelven son más bien personas mojigatas e irresponsables, a las que sólo les interesa la apariencia, la tertulia y el juego; con la excepción de los dos protagonistas, quienes tendrán que enfrentar las contrarie [...]

    Ivan Turgenev is one of my favorite authors. For some reason, he stands small next to those other giants of Russian literature. At the bookstore here, there's almost a whole shelf devoted to Tolstoy, to Dostoevsky. There's not a single book by Turgenev, not even Father's and Sons. Like them his novels are books of ideas, they're philosophical, political---but they're SHORT. While I'm all for diving into a 1,000 page tome, that requires an energy I don't always have. Turgenev's books are quick, r [...]

    O povestioară mică și frumoasă de dragoste, în stil rusesc. Peste tot se zice că Turgheniev este un scriitor aparținând realismului însă am recunoscut elemente de romantism care mi-au plăcut mult: o sărutare furată noaptea pe bancuța de sub tei, raze de lună care transformă camera într-o catedrală, o iubire neîmplinită și neacceptată de regulile societății etc.Doar la Montesquieu am mai întâlnit stilul acesta de a ironiza cu asprime fățărnicia și prostia din înalta [...]

  • Sunjay

    Contemplative and slow paced, but I loved it. Dostoevsky called Liza the only comparable heroine in Russian literature to Tatiana in "Onegin", in terms of her purity of soul and truthfulness of spirit, and I wholeheartedly agree. A wonderful display of Russian virtues and values as defined in the 19th century.
