Abstract

We investigate the love dynamics in Ivan Turgenev's pre-masochistic novella Torrents of Spring, using the system of ordinary differential equations. Unlike previous authors, we based our analysis not only on psychological credibility. We relate our model to the ideas of literary criticism. We compare Turgenev's text with the most famous masochistic novella "Venus in Furs" by L. von Sacher-Masoch.
