The Hunting Sketches Bk1 My Neighbour Radilov and Other Stories by Ivan TurgenevWhat Turgenev s Early Writing Led Him To A review of The Hunting SketchesA work from a distant country in a foreign language written over a century and a half ago had better be able to speak for itself Fortunately as an audio book now this one canWhen a book first comes out as this one did it attracts or repels readers largely on the basis of three main things its author its topic and its type or genre While a swing and a miss on any of these is definitely a strike against you a hit on just one of them may save the day and keep the game alive When Turgenev published The Hunting Sketches in 1852 he was not well known Strike One What s though his material came with a place attached to it the estate he had just inherited from his domineering mother and a gaggle of colorful people it bore no unifying theme or topic Strike Two And when it came to the third remaining basis what Turgenev did even doubled his difficulty ratio because what he chose to work within wasn t the familiar and popular story form but rather that of the sketch When was the last time you read and really enjoyed a sketch on anything And this is precisely where Turgenev s fortunes pivoted and turned around Not only did he get his hit but he knocked the ball into the stands and to stick with the sports metaphor he even made it into the hall of fameThe response was instantaneous It was not beginners luck but flowed from that which he had chosen to base his sketches on character Not as a mere literary device or techniue employed to make written pieces effective though many regard it in just this way and their work shows it and not many writers succeed despite their many labored attempts in learning to wield it in the engaging and life like way Turgenev did That is what shows in The Hunting Sketches where again and again he seizes his people with both hands determined not to let them go until they give handing over the revealing riches that character harbors deep within He wrote of character exclusively relentlessly and unswervingly in every single sketch What Turgenev found in character gave his work and the people in them the peasants and nobles of the provincial Russia of his day real things to talk about think of feel say and do And that is evident in his distinctly vivid charactersSurely this promising depth and dimensionality came as a surprise even to Turgenev For what had he ever published up to that time but a long poem and a short story But in 1847 at 29 he begins to write in the fine fashion found in The Hunting Sketches It changed both the way he saw things and the way he would write from then on It even had a hand in changing the world around him several credit his writing with hastening the official end of serfdom as wellThat Turgenev could actually see the reality of character is evidence of his artistic creativity but that he also chose to follow where it led is a sure sign of his own It carried him farIf the uality of narration matched that of the writing I would have given this audio book a four star rating As it presently stands I rate it at three and a half And if its two flaws identified under separate cover are readily addressed and corrected I would restore it to the four star rating the material otherwise deserves H1 Bloodstone Pass just one of them
