Love can be surprising. Love can be heartbreaking. Love can be an art. But love is the singular emotion that all humans rely on most . . . and crave endlessly, no matter what the cost. This vivid, sensitive tale of adolescent love follows a 16-year-old boy who falls in love with a beautiful, older woman and experiences a whirlwind of changing emotions, from exaltation and jealousy to despair and devotion. When the down-at-heel Princess Zasyekin moves next door to the country estate of Vladimir Petrovich s parents, he instantly and overwhelmingly falls in love with his new neighbour s daughter, Zinaida. But the capricious young woman already has many admirers and as she plays her suitors against each other, Vladimir s unrequited youthful passion soon turns to torment and despair - although he remains unaware of his true rival for Zinaida s affections. Set in the world of nineteenth-century Russia s fading aristocracy, from which Turgevev himself came, First Love is one of the most autobiographical of his works, anad it throbs with the ache and wonder of that once-in-a-lifetime experience - until the tender evocation is pierced by a devastating revelation that leaves the young hero s sweet illusions obliterated. Turgenev s story depicts a boy s growth of knowledge and mastery over his own heart as he awakens to the complex nature of adult love.
