伊凡·谢尔盖耶维奇·屠格涅夫即伊万·屠格涅夫(俄文名:Иван Сергеевич Тургенев)(1818-1883),是十九世纪俄国有世界声誉的“现实主义艺术大师”和“现实主义作家”。俄国十九世纪批判现实主义作家、诗人和剧作家,早期写诗(《帕拉莎》《地主》等)。1847~1852年发表《猎人笔记》,揭露农奴主的残忍,农奴的悲惨生活,因此被放逐。在监禁中写成中篇小说《木木》,对农奴制表示抗议。以后又发表长篇小说《罗亭》(1856年)、《贵族之家》(1859年),中篇小说《阿霞》《多余人的日记》等,描写贵族地主出身的知识分子好发议论而缺少斗争精神的性格。在长篇小说《前夜》(1860年)中,塑造出保加利亚革命者英沙罗夫的形象。后来发表长篇小说《父与子》,刻画贵族自由主义者同平民知识分子之间的思想冲突。后期长篇小说《烟》(1867年)和《处女地》(1877年),否定贵族反动派和贵族自由主义者,批评不彻底的民粹派,但流露悲观情绪。此外还写有剧本《村居一月》和散文诗《傻瓜》等。屠格涅夫多以写作中篇和长篇小说为主要,他的创作为俄国文学的发展做出了巨大贡献。

Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenevwas a Russian novelist, short story writer, and playwright. His first major publication, a short story collection entitled A Sportsman's Sketches (1852), was a milestone of Russian Realism, and his novel Fathers and Sons (1862) is regarded as one of the major works of 19th-century fiction.


One day in autumn on my way back from a remote part of the country I caught cold and fell ill. Fortunately the fever attacked me in the district town at the inn; I sent for the doctor. In half-an-hour the district doctor appeared, a thin, dark-haired man of middle height. He prescribed me the usual sudorific, ordered a mustard-plaster to be put on, very deftly slid a five-ruble note up his sleeve, coughing drily and looking away as he did so, and then was getting up to go home, but somehow fell into talk and remained. I was exhausted with feverishness; I foresaw a sleepless night, and was glad of a little chat with a pleasant companion. Tea was served. My doctor began to converse freely. He was a sensible fellow, and expressed himself with vigour and some humour. Queer things happen in the world: you may live a long while with some people, and be on friendly terms with them, and never once speak openly with them from your soul; with others you have scarcely time to get acquainted, and all at once you are pouring out to him—or he to you—all your secrets, as though you were at confession. I don't know how I gained the confidence of my new friend—anyway, with nothing to lead up to it, he told me a rather curious incident; and here I will report his tale for the information of the indulgent reader. I will try to tell it in the doctor's own words.
