About the book:

Phantoms and It is Enough were written next after Fathers and Children. Although one of Turgenief Fsminor works, the critics pronounced Phantoms original, wonderfully artistic and philosophical, and wonderfully lyrical. The author himself called it a fantasy, as he did other sketches in which he sometimes poured out, in lyrical form, his sadness evoked by the contrary laws of nature, and mans aspirations toward the absolute, the eternal. It demonstrates the somewhat mystical romanticism which lay concealed in Turgenieif snature, and only occasionally came to the light. YakoiF Pasynkoff constitutes the authors response to Hegel ssentimental romanticism. The hero of the story is a martyr to the renunciation of egotism a peculiar figure, toward which Turgenief Fbore himself with the most fervent sympathy. Yakof Fis sympathetic, as well as poetical, but remote from real life. One critic objects that the story is weak and incomplete and, as it were, split into two parts, which are unsymmetrical alone, and badly assorted when taken together.
