First Love, by Ivan Turgenev

The world Volodya inhabits seems to be in the grip of mysterious forces beyond his control; it is de-formed and de-realized producing a social realism of shadows by hidden machinations in the background. I would suggest, moreover, that this melancholy focalizing resonates with the meanings attributed to the term by Walter Benjamin in his essay on the mourning play Trauerspiel of the German Baroque see also Butler — This last point speaks directly to First Love.
Life, sucked out of the social domain, is concentrated there: it appears as passion, intensity, vitality, which, taken to the limit, is death itself. Like the younger Hamlet invoked in the epilogue of the story and episodically discussed by Benjamin , Volodya survives his father to lead a life haunted by death; meanwhile, the father, having lived a starkly real life, pays for it with a sudden and premature demise.
The distinction between the father and the son can thus be seen as a distinction between the political subject of tragedy and the social subject of the European novel. In this respect First Love testifies to an awkward and paradoxical predicament: by virtue of its genre, it must write about society, but by virtue of its location within the social imaginary oriented toward the state, it is unable to write about society without indicating that something is fundamentally missing, that the life it is compelled to treat cannot be taken seriously, that it is a ghostly life.
Pre- sented in this mode, the action of the tale, like that of the Trauerspiel, is given to us as an allegory: it is not there for the sake of itself but as an object of meditation, as an index of something else. For the Trauerspiel, as for First Love, that meaning is death. For a reading, like the one I have attempted here, one that approaches the text as a political allegory, that meaning is also the domain of charismatic authority, sov- ereignty, the state. The payoff here is a vision of what might be called an alternative realism, oriented toward the logics of the state and thus foregrounding the violence that remains excluded from, and yet continues to anchor, the realist social imaginary in the West.
