A Raw Youth: The Adolescent
The Raw Youth (1875), also known as The Adolescent, documents the life of an ambitious 19 year old boy, Arkady Dolgoruky, illegal son of a self-indulgent landlord. It is a convincing portrayal of youth that completely captures the idealism, frustrations, and ambition of that particular age. The transition from the old ways to the rampant new ideology of Russian youth is beautifully captured.
