This volume contains two of the world's great love stories - FIRST LOVE, and SPRING TORRENTS, which show Turgenev at his very best. Simple, direct and tender, they record the pains and glories of youthful infatuation in a style which evokes exactly and in detail what it is like to be young and in love. In addition, there is a third, much shorter story, A FIRE AT SEA, translated by Isaiah Berlin, and an introduction to the whole volume by V. S. Pritchett.

About the Author:

Ivan Turgenev (1818-1883) was born in the province of Oryol, Russia. In 1843 he fell in love with Pauline Garcia-Vardot, a young Spanish singer, who influenced the rest of his life. After 1856 he lived mostly abroad and became the first Russian writer to gain a reputation in Europe.

His series of six novels, which reflects a period of Russian life from the 1830s to the 1870s, are Rudin (1856), Home of the Gentry (1859), On the Eve (1860), Fathers and Sons (1862), Smoke (1867) and Virgin Soil (1877). He also wrote plays, short stories and novellas, of which First Love (1860) is the most famous.
