Transcript Russia's Gift to the World 13 with French and German, English and Italian, among the national literatures of Europe. That claim was established, that place secured, by the three great imaginative writers of the next generation. Pushkin and his contemporaries, indeed, have only become known largely outside of Russia in the reflected light of those successors, who compelled the attention and won the admiration of the whole world. Turgenev, Dostoyevsky, and Tolstoy are by common consent among the greatest writers of all ages and countries. It would be needless to labour a point which no one would deny. Taken together, they sum up a production comparable in largeness, force, and vital truth to those of Elizabethan or Victorian England. Of this great trinity but few words need be said. Turgenev is above all things a consummate artist. For easy and complete mastery of his art he stands at the head of all European writers of his time. His early training was largely German, and afterwards he lived much in France ; and so he writes of Russian life from a broad European point of view, and his fame became as great throughout Europe as it was in his own country. Through him Europe came for the first time, with a shock of surprise and admiration, into contact with the Russian soul. Writers so distinguished as George Sand and Flaubert acknowledged him as their master. In Dmitri Rudin, Fathers and Sons, and other works hardly less famous, he combined truth to nature with purity of outline and sense of proportion, and with complete harmony between thought and expression. His work is almost unequalled for perfection of style and for restrained power ; Taine hardly went beyond what most would admit, when he said that there had been nothing like it since Sophocles. He wrote of a life which was rapidly becoming a life of the past ; in his last important work, Virgin Soil, he is seen trying, in some perplexity, to keep
