About the book:

Ivan Turgenev (1818-83) had the ability to expand the significance of a single episode into a story that illustrated a whole life, a relationship, or even an entire age. This collection brings together six of his best-known "long" short stories in one volume. With the exception of "The Song of Triumphant Love", which is set in Renaissance Italy, the stories are all partly autobiographical. They have been chosen to demonstrate the evolution of Turgenev's skills and interests, from the diary form of his famous study of a "superfluous man" (1850) through his exposure of the tyranny of serfdom in the small work "Mumu" (1854), to his two evocations of love, "Asya" (1850) and "First Love" (1860). The volume also contains an introduction and explanatory notes. Professor Richard Freeborn has previously translated Turgenev's "Spring Torrents" and "Sketches from a Hunters's Album".
