Turgenev's Russian landscapes, his tales of hunting life, and his over-all gentlemanliness and good-eggedness, have made him one of the most popular Russian writers in the West. But he looks different from the Russian angle. The horribly "unfair" portrait of Turgenev in Dostoevsky's Devils "mincing and simpering" lingers in the mind. Karmazinov, as he is called in the novel, is not merely ridiculous, he is also a contemptible person.

His vapid liberalism makes him a "useful idiot" as far as the revolutionaries are concerned, and when the mayhem starts, he knows he can retreat to one of his favoured European cities.

In many of the famous spats of literary history, the more "unfair" the satire, the truer it turns out to have been. Who would side with Alexander Pope against the Dunces? Or cheer Dr Johnson denouncing Lord Chesterfield for having the manners of a dancing master and the morals of a whore?

Turgenev's weightiest novel, Fathers and Children, makes disappointing reading. If you have only read about the book, you will know that it is the first work of literature to popularise the word "nihilism", and that its hero, Bazarov, tragically and attractively embodies the nihilistic philosophy of the s. But when you read it, the book turns out not to be a novel of ideas at all. Its best bits, as in all Turgenev's perfectly pleasant books, are the descriptions of nature, and of falling in love.

Arkady has just graduated.

Bazarov is a medical student. Before they begin their grown-up lives, they go for a journey into the Russian countryside to meet their respective parents. Arkady discovers that his father, the impoverished son of an army officer, has fathered a child by a beautiful young woman who falls between the shabby-genteel and the servant class. Bazarov claims to despise the love of women, though he manages a quick snog with this nice girl, Fenitchka. Because this is witnessed by Arkady's uncle, Pavel, a rather stiffer figure than the dad, Bazarov finds himself challenged to a duel - the most exciting scene of the book.

Arkady falls in love with her younger, more naive sister, Katya, and eventually marries her. Bazarov falls more heavily in love with Anna Sergyevna, but both realise there is no future in their romance.

Bazarov goes home to his parents, but in his efforts to treat the local peasantry during a typhoid epidemic, he succumbs to the disease and dies. You could say that it is a nicely drawn set of scenes, and that the characters are realistic. The furniture, the clothes, and the food are all accurately described. The social differences between Arkady's family - gentlemen, though poorish - and Bazarov's, who are only one generation away from something much lowlier, are punctiliously observed.

We see freshly picked bunches of lilac aranged near the samovar. Anna's country house is next to a bright yellow stone church. You can see it all. But there is a complete emptiness in this Russian Literature-Lite which leaves the reader hungry. What is the connection between Bazarov's so-called nihilistic ideas and his actions and inactions?
