URL :  Home of the Gentry
Author : Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev
Detail : Date of publication: 1859

Home of the Gentry (Russian: Дворянское гнездо, pronounced [dvorʲanskɔjɛ ɡnʲɛzdo]) is a novel by Ivan Turgenev published in the January 1859 issue of Sovremennik. It was enthusiastically received by the Russian society and remained his least controversial and most widely read novel until the end of the 19th century. It was turned into a movie by Andrey Konchalovsky in 1969.

***********************************

The novel's protagonist is Fyodor Ivanych Lavretsky, a nobleman who shares many traits with Turgenev. The child of a distant, Anglophile father and a serf mother who dies when he is very young, Lavretsky is brought up at his family's country estate home by a severe maiden aunt, often thought to be based on Turgenev's own mother who was known for her cruelty.
