История одного города

Free sample

В 1860-е годы отношение Тургенева к Щедрину постепенно меняется; он признает значение творчества сатирика и пишет в «Воспоминаниях о Белинском» (1869), перечисляя лучших писателей этого времени: «Как бы порадовался он Белинский поэтическому дару Л. Н. Толстого, силе Островского, юмору Писемского, сатире Салтыкова, трезвой правде Решетникова!».«История одного города» с первых же ее очерков вызвала восхищение Тургенева. 27 января (8 февраля) 1870 г. он писал Анненкову: «Во втором нумере „Отечественных записок“ я уже успел прочесть продолжение „Истории одного города“ Салтыкова и хохотал до чихоты. Он нет, нет, да и заденет меня; но это ничего не значит: он прелестен».

About the author

Ivan Turgenev, 1818 - 1883 Novelist, poet and playwright, Ivan Turgenev, was born to a wealthy family in Oryol in the Ukraine region of Russia. He attended St. Petersburg University (1834-37) and Berlin University (1838-41), completing his master's exam at St. Petersburg. His career at the Russian Civil Service began in 1841. He worded for the Ministry of Interior from 1843-1845. In the 1840's, Turgenev began writing poetry, criticism, and short stories under Nikolay Gogol's influence. "A Sportsman's Sketches" (1852) were short pieces written from the point of view of a nobleman who learns to appreciate the wisdom of the peasants who live on his family's estate. This brought him a month of detention and eighteen months of house arrest. From 1853-62, he wrote stories and novellas, which include the titles "Rudin" (1856), "Dvorianskoe Gnedo" (1859), "Nakanune" (1860) and "Ottsy I Deti" (1862). Turgenev left Russia, in 1856, because of the hostile reaction to his work titled "Fathers and Sons" (1862). Turgenev finally settled in Paris. He became a corresponding member of the Imperial Academy of Sciences in 1860 and Doctor of Civil Law at Oxford University in 1879. His last published work, "Poems in Prose," was a collection of meditations and anecdotes. On September 3, 1883, Turgenev died in Bougival, near Paris.
