Ivan Turgenev | Brief Biography

Ivan Turgenev (1818-1883) was a Russian novelist, playwright, and short-story writer who was a major figure in 19th-century Russian literature. He was born into a wealthy landowning family in the province of Oryol and was educated in Russia, France, and Germany. Turgenev is best known for his novels, including “Fathers and Sons” (1862), which is considered one of the greatest works of 19th-century Russian literature and is credited with establishing the tradition of Russian realist fiction.

Turgenev’s works often dealt with themes of social and political change, as well as personal relationships, and he is considered a pioneer of psychological realism in Russian literature. In addition to his novels, he wrote several plays, including “A Month in the Country” (1850), which is considered one of the greatest works of Russian drama.

Turgenev was a prominent member of the literary circles of St. Petersburg and was friends with many of the leading literary figures of his day, including Ivan Goncharov, Nikolai Gogol, and Fyodor Dostoevsky.
