Ivan Turgenev


Russian author and master of fiction though not acknowledged on a par with Tolstoy; published from 1847. He gained an international reputation within the artistic circles of western Europe, becoming an interpreter of Russian literature and values. Turgenev studied in Russia and Germany where he earned his Masters degree in philosophy. His first play, a comedy, "A Month in the Country," was released in 1850. His fame grew with a series of books attacking serfdom, which led to his confinement to his country estate in Spasskoe.

From 1845, he spent most of his time in Germany and France, following his mistress, opera singer Pauline Viardot-Garcia, to whom he remained devoted all his life. He briefly went into political service before inheriting his mother's estate in 1850.

Turgenev died 9/03/1883, near Paris.
