Abstract

Although Detlev von Liliencron (1844-1909) cited the Russian writer Ivan Turgenev (1818–1883) as one of the greatest influences on his literary work, the exact nature of the connection between them has not been investigated. The article examines aspects of Turgenev's early work A Sportsman's Sketches which made a particular impression on Liliencron and which, it is argued, served as a model for the development of scenes and characters in Liliencron's own prose. The similarities and differences in the two writers' world-views and creative scope are considered, and the significance of Turgenev's impact on the formative period of Liliencron's artistic career is evaluated.
