However, only one of the party has an interesting tale to tell, which took place one summer when he, Vladimir Petrovich, was sixteen. You might get a chill and die. But at that time I understood nothing of it, and could have given a name to nothing of all that was passing at random within me, or should have called it all by one name — the name of Zinaïda. At the same instant the girl too turned towards me. And her face was ever changing, working too; it expressed, almost at the same time, irony, dreaminess, and passion.
I promptly jumped over the fence and ran joyfully up to her, but she brought me to a halt with a look, and motioned me to the path two paces from her. He has a magnificent figure with a pink face and protruding eyes. He is twelve years old and a cadet. I had never known such a look on her. I slowly made my way back to the street, and walked on without knowing myself where I was going. Turgenev met her husband, Louis Viardot, on a hunting trip and, thus, was able to meet Pauline. In the evenings they gather at her house to play games and discuss literature, but mainly to play games.

Zinaida changes throughout the book, and Vladimir realizes these changes are due to Zinaida being in love. Zinaïda came in from the next room, pale, and dressed in black, with her hair hanging loose; she took me by the hand without a word, and drew me away with her. I remembered the exclamation that had broken from Lushin in the Neskutchny gardens, the sudden change in her behaviour to me, and I was lost in conjectures.
Byelovzorov came in; I felt relieved to see him. The kitten started, blinked, and began lapping. The lightning never ceased for an instant; it was what is called among the peasants a sparrow night. I was lost in imaginings, and was always seeking seclusion and solitude. There was a sound of the cooing of doves, and the bees hummed, flying low over the scanty grass, Overhead the sun was radiantly blue — while I was so sorrowful.

This had never been a habit of hers till now. I have never seen a man more elaborately serene, self-confident, and commanding. I was turning away, but she stopped me of herself. I would gladly have stopped there altogether, it seemed. He sees much of her, but finds that, while she is not coquettish, she seems to be ambivalent to him, warm at times and keen to draw him into the circle, indifferent at others. Byelovzorovappears in First Love Byelovzorov is one of Zinaida's admirers.
Zinaïda walked up and down the room, giving me a quick smile, whenever she caught my eye, but her thoughts were far away, I saw that clearly. His father belonged to an old, but impoverished Turgenev family of aristocracy that traces its history to the 15th century when a Lev Turgen Ivan Turgenev after baptizing left the to serve. I stood stockstill in the same place and did not know whether to laugh, to say something, or to be silent. Even so, there is a scene late in the story when father and son go riding together and, told to wait at the end of a street, Vladimir sees his father talking to Zinaida at a window. Lord save us, what might happen! The young hussar was confused.
Kendi günlerin hızla uçup,hiçbir iz bırakmadan yok olur ve içinmdeki her şey güneşin altında eriyip giderken bile mum gibi. Even the grasshoppers ceased their churr in the trees — only a window rattled somewhere. Yes, I thought, this is love, this is passion, this is devotion. My mother did not like Zinaïda either. It was sweet to me to think that Zinaïda could not, anyway, fail to do justice to my courage, my heroism. And now when the shades of evening are beginning to close in upon my life, what have I left that is fresher, dearer to me, than the memories of that brief storm that came and went so swiftly one morning in spring? The first moments of expectation were oppressive, almost terrible. Petersburg, but it takes a week for him to visit her upon which he learns that she died four days earlier during childbirth.
I had no notion of offending you. I had a shaggy black horse, strong, and fairly spirited. But there, by the fountain, by the plashing water, he whose slave I am awaits me. I bent my steps toward Zinaïda, but she did not even glance at me; she picked up her book again and went away. There, near the trees, is a fountain; it is white in the darkness and tall, tall as a ghost. I wandered a long while over hills and through woods; I had not felt happy, I had left home with the intention of giving myself up to melancholy, but youth, the exquisite weather, the fresh air, the pleasure of rapid motion, the sweetness of repose, lying on the thick grass in a solitary nook, gained the upper hand; the memory of those never-to-be-forgotten words, those kisses, forced itself once more upon my soul. Only Byelovzorov kept more and more in the background, scowling and angry.
I felt that I must see his face. Byelovzorov gives Zinaida a tabby kitten because she wants one and her word is law. In Moscow, Turgenev often used to meet his friends, relatives and publishers, and his complete works were published in five volumes in 1860 Short Novels and Stories by I. A change had come over her, that was obvious. What this suggests, and what the rest of the text backs up, is that she is a lively, free-spirited, young girl.
After dinner I went into the garden, but without my gun. He continually tells Vladimir when Mme. I followed her — all in amazement. This unexpectedly rapid fulfilment of my secret desires both delighted and appalled me. Byelovzorov brings a tabby kitten to Zinaida because she mentions that she wants one, and Zinaida also asks for a horse because she wants to go riding with Pyotr Petrovich, Vladimir's father. I warn you I want to gallop.
