Fathers and Sons by Ivan Sergeevich Turgenev, 1818 - 1883: Bazarov, a nihilist, advocates a materialistic view of life and disappoints his adoring parents. - From Novelist an online database accessed June 6, 2013 through GALILEO

"Against the background of the liberation of Russia's serfs during the 1860s, a generational conflict flares between older aristocrats and radical youths. Quarrels, romance, and misunderstandings ensue when an outspoken young nihilist accompanies a school friend home for an extended visit. One of the truly great 19th-century Russian novels." -From GoodReads, accessed online June 6, 2013
