A Month In The Country. In J. L. Carr’s deeply charged poetic novel, Tom Birkin, a veteran of the Great War and a broken marriage, arrives in the remote Yorkshire village of Oxgodby where he is to restore a recently discovered medieval mural in the local church. Living in the bell tower, surrounded by the resplendent countryside of high summer, and laboring each day to uncover an anonymous painter’s depiction of the apocalypse, Birkin finds that he himself has been restored to a new, and hopeful, attachment to life. But summer ends, and with the work done, Birkin must leave. Now, long after, as he reflects on the passage of time and the power of art, he finds in his memories some consolation for all that has been lost.

A Month In The Country. 'Every kind of love, whether happy or unhappy, is a real calamity if you surrender to it wholly...'This heart-felt sentiment, expressed by Turgenev's unfortunate character Rakitin sums up the central predicament of A Month in the Country, Turgenev's most celebrated play. Completed in 1850, it explores the complexities of that most universal of themes, the eternal love triangle; and in it Turgenev uses his grasp of psychology and brilliant technique to turn this subject into a dazzling tragicomedy.
