Liza or a Nest of Nobles : Ivan S Turgenieff :
Found at these bookshops Searching - please wait We were unable to find this edition in any bookshop we are able to search. The upshot of such behaviour is that the rich people have no knowledge of what should have been their own culture and return to their homeland as strangers with no feelings for or experience of the natives. Not even able to speak their mother tongue properly. This still happens in Scotland, the landed gentry, clan chiefs and such like habitually send their sons to be educated in England, most usually at Eton.
So you have the ludicrous mixture of a man in a kilt and sporran and yes a feather in his hat, but speaking with the plummiest English accent imaginable. They have absolutely no idea of real Scottish culture as the only thing they do is hunting, shooting and fishing on their estate. He is too embarassed to go home and stays on in Russia as a poorly paid and under-rated teacher.
It may have been predictable, but it sounds pretty good. What is it with Russia and the Germans? In Oblomov the German character in that book is generally disparaged. The Classics Circuit has definitely encouraged me to widen my reading experience. Have you seen the David Lean-produced and directed movie of ?
I first saw it with my older brother when I was 14 years old, and from that moment, I was immediately hooked on Russian literature and history. I have seen the movie a grand total of 8 times, and have read the novel once, the summer that I was I adored it.
Yes, I own the DVD and every now and then my husband and I shut the shades and watch it on a sultry summer afternoon. It was published in by Fontana, the cover reminds me of a Mondrian. The pages have been putting me off all this time. That is one cool looking book!
