dc.description.abstractErnest Gaines has repeatedly claimed that he was heavily influenced by Ivan Turgenev’s work on peasants and peasant culture in nineteenth-century Russia. This exploration examines the ways in which Fathers and Sons had a direct impact on the creation and development of Catherine Carmier. Additionally, this text also deals with the ways in which these two authors attempted to capture the unique mystical and superstitious components of peasant culture in their distinct geographical and historical settings.
