Rudin is a highly educated, well-brought up man in his 30s living in Russia. He embodies the Superfluous Man popular in Russian literature: a man of high intelligence and ideals with no action. He is, essentially, all talk and incapable of following through with his thoughts and desires. He is a moocher, living off of the generosity of others. He is taken in by Darya Lasunsky, mother of 17-year-old beauty, Natalya. Rudin befriends Natalya, an equally intelligent young woman, filled with secrets, ...more

عالى نيست اما خوب هست، ادبيات روس خالص،معرفي ها و شخصيت ها و همه و همه سنت رايج ادبي،لذت بردم اما شگف ت زده نشدم. خيلي شبيه رمان همان هميشگي از يكي ديگر از نويسندگان روس بود كه اسمش يادم نيست. در مجموع فضاي عدم آگاهي، قدر ناشناسي رايج روسيه ي تزاري را نشان مي داد، همان اسامي پرطمطراق روسي و همان زندگي هاي يكنواخت همه ي داستان هاي روسي هم دوره اش.

Just fabulous! The modern sense of sarcastic insight that Twain brought into American literature, what Cervantes might have done for literature in general, what Vonnegut and Nabokov turned into a completed art, Turgenev introduced into the standard world of 19th century Russian characters and situations. The wit isn’t as quick as, say, Wilde, but Rudin is sharp, funny and an emotional commentary on wasted potential.

Our title character is not a hero. Despite all his charms--and you can’t deny he

I was and remain in love with Turgenev’s short novels of – not ideas, exactly; not morality plays, as I used to try to describe them; at any rate, short novels that hinge on a commitment, a choice, and that emplot the questions of Turgenev’s day, or is it the question? Whether to act. How to act, given that there is wide agreement on the necessity of action and a frustrating lack of scope for it, in intelligentsia circles of Turgenev’s day.

"Poetry is the language of the gods. I love poems myself. But poetry is not only in poems; it is diffused everywhere, it is around us. Look at those trees, that sky on all sides there is the breath of beauty, and of life, and where there is life and beauty, there is poetry also."

اي جواني مرا به كجا اوردي، انقدر بر سرم زدي كه ديگر جايي براي قدم برداشتن نيست
ولي بايد بپرسم أيا واقعا به هيچ دردي نمي خوردم، أيا واقعا بر روي زمين كاري براي من نيست؟
من بارها از خودم اين سؤال را كرده بودم و هر قدر سعي كردم خودم را در نظر خودم تحقير كنم
باز هم حس مي كردم كه صاحب نيرو و قدرتي هستم كه به همه ادميان إعطاء نشده است! پس
چرا اين نيرو و قدرت ثمري به بار نمي اورد؟
چرا اينطور است؟ چه چيزي مانع ان مي شود كه مانند ديگران زندگي و فعاليت كنم؟

Turgenev has a way with words so whatever the work may be, it is worth reading. The characters here are beautifully written specially for such a short novel and are truly memorable, specially Rudin but memorable characters are there in his short stories as well. The length of a work doesn't stand in the way of Turgenev in creating his rare, yet very realistic characters.

Turgenev's Rudin is the sort of charismatic man who sets people's hearts on fire but he has a fatal flaw. He is a superfluous
This was supposed to be my 1000th read book added to Goodreads, but yesterday I remembered a book I had completely forgotten I had read, and so this is book no 1001! And perhaps that's just as well. This is perhaps not an astonishing piece of literature, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. It's a typically Russian story (with mainly lots of talking and various uninteresting romances) about a supposedly very promising man who just can't find his place in society. Beautifully written, of course! It's Tu ...more

"Rudin" is the first novel by Ivan Turgenev. Turgenev started to work on it in 1855, and it was first published in the literary magazine "Sovremennik" in 1856. For some reason that I don't know it seems to be the least known of Turgenev's novels. I would think that if you read one or two of his other novels you would want to read the first, but apparently not everyone thinks like I do, which is an incredibly lucky thing come to think of it. Also, I am sure I have never seen any of Turgenev's nov ...more

But there was in him such a love of light, sunshine, and living human poetry, such an organic aversion for all that is ugly, or coarse and discordant, that he made himself almost exclusively the poet of the gentler side of human nature.

This is not Turgenev's description of the title character, but is, instead, the description of the author Turgenev as contained in the Introduction to this novel. I haven't seen a better way of saying why I enjoy this author.

That said, Rudin is just not as good as

کتاب رودین را بلافاصله بعد از آشیانه اشراف خواندم. موضوع جالب دو شخصیت اول مشابه هر دو داستان بود . مردی میانسال و دختری جوان درگیر رابطهای عاشقانه میشوند. در هر دو داستان عشق به سرانجامی نمیرسد. مرد بزدلانه پا پس میکشد و دختر خشمگین از رفتار مرد عقب مینشیند. اما اتفاق جالب واکنش شخصیتها در دو داستان است. در داستان رودین مرد (رودین) در نهایت به یک شخصیت انقلابی تبدیل میشود و در جریان درگیریهای قیام فرانسه کشته میشود. زن داستان (ناتالیا) خوشبخت میشود. و در روند زندگیی آرام قرار میگیرد. آشیانه اش ...more

Рудин - лишний человек, если говорить школьными шаблонами. Это люди исключения. Таких единицы. Мне больше запомнились другие персонажи. Пигасов - местный дикарь: это надо же додуматься толкать женщин в бок осиновым колом! Четыре положительных персонажа достойны упоминания: Наталья Ласунская, Волынцев, Липина и Лежнёв. Рудин, краснобай, гегельянец, но чьи слова расходятся с делом, сбил с толку Наталью Ласунскую. Наталья и Рудин - это как Наташа Ростова и Анатоль Курагин, та же трагедия наивной де ...more

„- Uite, zise Rudin, şi cu un gest, îi arătă fereastra, vezi mărul ăsta, s-a rupt din pricina poverii şi a numeroaselor sale roade.. Adevăratul simbol al geniului.”

Nu am întâlnit de foarte mult timp o carte care să se joace cu atâta uşurinţă şi dezinvoltură cu sentimentele mele, o operă care să mă pună în încurcătură prin cuvintele unui personaj atât de complex, bântuit de propriile gânduri şi idealuri, încât e dispus să îşi sacrifice fericirea pentru un adevăr îmbrăcat în minciună.

Rudin is the story of Dmitri Nikolaevich Rudin, the titular character, who travels to the Russian countryside to stay with the widowed female landowner Darya Mikhailovna Lasunskaya.

He interacts with her small social circle: her daughter Natalya Aleskeevna Lasunskaya, her secretary Konstantin Diomidych Pandalevskii; and other landowners: the brother and sister Sergei Pavlovich Volyntsev and Aleksandra Pavlovna Lipina, woman hating Afrikan Semenych Pigasov, and social eschewing Mihailo Mihailych

والدموع لاتأتى دائماً بالفرج , بل هى تروح عن النفس وتشفيها ممابها إذا واتت بعد طول احتباس , واستعصت أول الأمر على الجهد , ثم راحت تنهمر فى تكاثر رخية عذبة , وهكذا يخف الألم المبرح الصامت , على أن ثم عبرات باردة , عبرات تند من العين فى حنق وضغينة , ويعتصرها من القلب قطرة قطرة ماناء به من من حزن شديد مقيم , وهذه العبرات لاتأتى بعزاء ولاتفرج كرباً , والحاجة الملجة هى التى تستدر هذه الدموع , ومن لم يذرفها لايكن قد عرف الشقاء حقاً "

El ambiente, el tema y la prosa del autor a priori lo tenían todo para gustarme, pero la novela me ha resultado insustancial de principio a fin. No he conseguido que ninguno de los personajes me despierten ni un mínimo de interés, así que ha sido una lectura bastante tediosa, y seguramente no la hubiera terminado de no ser por su corta extensión. No descarto leer obras posteriores del autor, porque sé que esta no es de las mejores, pero esta, desde luego, no me ha interesado lo más mínimo.

زندگی معنوی قوی وکوشش برای نیل به حقیقت و ازادی رودین را در مقامی بالاتر از محیط قرار میدهد اما قهرمان رمان برای نیرو و استعداد خارق العاده خویش مورد استعمال پیدا نمیکند عقل و استعدادو دانش وی به هدر رفت در نتیجه رودین شخصی غیر فعال شد که قادر نبود از سعادت خویش با دوشیزه خویش دفاع کند

داستانی که بیشتر از حرکت در عمق به نظرم درعرض حرکت می کنه. به نظرم تورگنیف در این داستان بسیار عقب تر از داستان نویس های بزرگ روس مثل تولستوی و داستایوسکیه. احساس می کنم با این که سعی در ساخت شخصیت های چندوجهی داره،در برخی موارد مثل لژنیف که قرار حرف های مهم پایانیو بزنه و همیشه حرف های مهم از اون صادر میشه، نوع شخصیت پردازی باعث آنتی پاتیک شدن او و در نتیجه دور شدن مخاطب از اون میشه که به نظرم این به داستان ضربه زده. در کل بر عکس نویسندگانی همچون داستایوسکی که ما رو وارد جهان شخصیت ها می کنند ب ...more

Muy Turgenev, muy ruso, con unos personajes secundarios de caracteres típicos (media burguesía rural pagada de sí misma y bastante pazguata) y unos protagonistas muy sentidos con los que te encariñas con facilidad. Inocencia de primer amor bien llevado aunque sea fallido contra madurez del enamorado vencido por demasiados planteamientos filosóficos.

After Tolstoy and Dostoevsky, Turgenev becomes the third Russian author whose work I have gone through and each one has enthralled me equally.
In Rudin we come across a far personal but complex problems of human feelings, Love being the central theme. Be assured that this novel won't be anything you haven't read before a typical love story and ill fated end to it but here comes the powers of a writer as skilful as Turgenev. He doesn't touch a revolution or large aristocratic families with social

نیمه ی اول کتاب رو زودی خوندم و رفتم جلو. اما از نیمه ی دوم تبدیل شد به یکی از ملال آورترین رمان های روسی. با همون تصاویر آشنای آدم های خسته و دلزده از زندگی، با پالتوهای مستعمل و خاک گرفته که تو مسافرخونه ها پیداشون میشه. به نظرم تورگنیف خیلی زود رها کرد شخصیت اصلیش رو. دلم می خواست واقعن بیشتر راجع به رودین بدونم. درنهایت اما این کتاب بیشتر کتاب «اظهارنظرها و توصیفاتِ کوتاه قشنگ» شد واسه من. مثل این: بالاخره این هم خودش نوعی حساب است که انسان نقاب بی قیدی و تنبلی به صورت خود بزند که شاید دیگر ...more

A cada livro que leio de Turgenev mais percebo o conceito de pessoa supérflua. É engraçado como é um conceito intemporal que se aplica perfeitamente aos dias de hoje, mas mais especificamente à idade do intelecto - segundo Glubb. Isto porque a pessoa supérflua é senão um génio, uma pessoa dotada de mestria na palavra, um estudioso, mas mais que tudo é uma pessoa com um fraco poder de vontade.

Nas minhas últimas recensões críticas de obras de Turgenev, é sempre constante a minha alusão à passivida
