Though Essentially A Love Story With A Historical Background, On The Eve Hints In Its Title At Social And Political Implications Which No Russian Reader Could Miss When It Appeared In 1859 Turgenev S Study Of Elena Stahov, In Love With A Bulgarian Revolutionary, Is A Memorable Achievement Of Character Drawing, But The Authors Artistry Is Nowhere Clearly Shown Than In His Development Of The Minor Characters Turgenev S Touch Is Light And His Sense Of Humour Delicious, And The Story, As It Moves To Its Inevitable And Tragic Conclusion, Is Never Oppressive.Turgenev Is An Author Who No Longer Belongs To Russia Only During The Last Fifteen Years Of His Life He Won For Himself The Reading Public, First In France, Then In Germany And America, And Finally In England In His Funeral Oration The Spokesman Of The Most Artistic And Critical Of European Nations, Ernest Renan, Hailed Him As One Of The Greatest Writers Of Our Times The Master, Whose Exquisite Works Have Charmed Our Century, Stand Than Any Other Man As The Incarnation Of The Whole Race , Because A Whole World Lived In Him And Spoke Through His Mouth Not The Russian World Only, We May Add, But The Whole Slavonic World, To Which It Was An Honour To Have Been Expressed By So Great A Master As Regards His Method Of Dealing With His Material And Shaping It Into Mould, He Stands Even Higher Than As A Pure Creator Tolstoy Is Plastical, And Certainly As Deep And Original And Rich In Creative Power As Turgenev, And Dostoevsky Is Intense, Fervid, And Dramatic But As An Artist, As Master Of The Combination Of Details Into A Harmonious Whole, As An Architect Of Imaginative Work, He Surpasses All The Prose Writers Of His Country, And Has But Few Equals Among The Great Novelists Of Other Lands.
