A House of Gentlefolk - demo

The protagonist of this novel, Theodor Ivanovich Lavretsky, a nobleman, shares many characteristics with Turgenev himself, for instance in that he was brought up by a strict woman landowner. The novel was first published in 1859 and became the cause of a serious falling out between Turgenev and Goncharov, the latter accusing Turgenev of plagiarizing the idea, after Goncharov's sharing his thoughts on his new book among acquaintances (the book was "The Precipice"). One can trace similarities between the novels, yet there are many more difference, of course. (Summary by tovarisch)
