A Sportsman's  Sketches 
Ivan  Turgenev 

A Sportsman's  Sketches  (Russian:  3anncKi/i  oxothmio;  also  known  as  The 
Hunting  Sketches  and  Sketches  from  a Hunter's  Album)  was  an  1852  collection  of 
short  stories  by  Ivan  Turgenev.  It  was  the  first  major  writing  that  gained  him 
recognition.  He  wrote  this  collection  of  short  stories  based  on  his  own 
observations  while  hunting  at  his  mother’s  estate  at  Spasskoye,  where  he  learned 
of  the  abuse  of  the  peasants  and  the  injustices  of  the  Russian  system  that 
constrained  them.  The  frequent  abuse  of  Turgenev  by  his  mother  certainly  had  an 
effect  on  this  work.  The  stories  were  first  published  in  The  Contemporary  with 
each  story  separate  before  appearing  in  1852  in  book  form.  He  was  about  to  give 
up  writing  when  the  first  story,  "Khor  and  Kalinich,"  was  well  received.  This  work  is 
part  of  the  Russian  realist  tradition  in  that  the  narrator  is  usually  an  uncommitted 
observer  of  the  people  he  meets.
