Summary of the story “The Chorus and Kalinich” by IS Turgenev

The author begins the narrative by comparing the Oryol and Kaluga peasants, but then he gives an example of how in one place absolutely different people can live, between whom a very friendly relationship has been established. In the Zhizdrinsky district of the Kaluga province, the narrator became acquainted with the small landowner Polutykin. They were both passionate hunters. He invited the author to his house, and since the road to the house was long, both hunters agreed to spend the night with one of the peasants Polutykin – a strong peasant, Khor. The landowner does not find the peasant at home, only a few of his many sons. The author was surprised that Horus lives apart from the rest of the village. It turns out that this is a very wealthy peasant and pays a good rent, not even

thinking about buying off the master. The next day the author gets acquainted with the peasant Kalynych, who helps his master in hunting. This person turned out to be the exact opposite of Choria. Great was Turgenev’s surprise when he learned that Hor and Kalinich were friends: the author himself witnessed how Kalinych brought Horia strawberries to treat themselves and started a hearty conversation with him. The chorus was a practical man, a realist, he knew how to live. Kalynych turned out to be more of an ideal romanticist, he does not know how to earn money, he was close to nature. The chorus somewhat teases Kalinich’s poverty, but appreciates his knowledge of bees, horses, hunting, etc. These people successfully complemented each other in their qualities; during the departure the author left them with regret. when he learned that Hor and Kalinich are friends: the author himself witnessed how Kalinych brought Horia strawberries to treat themselves and started a hearty conversation with him.
