The Diary of a Superfluous Man and Other Stories

ByIvan Turgenev

Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev (1818-1883) was a great Russian novelist and playwright. Diary of a Superfluous Man,was published in 1850 . Turgenev created one of the first literary portraits of the alienated man. He once said that there was a great deal of himself in the unsuccessful lovers who appear in his fiction. This failure, along with painful self-consciousness, is a central fact for the ailing Chulkaturin in this melancholy tale. As he reflects on his life, he tells the story of Liza, whom he loved, and a prince, whom she loved instead, and the curious turns all their lives took.
