First Love is classic romance novel written by Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev and first published in 1860. Vladimir Petrovich Voldemar, a 16-­year-­old, is staying in the country with his family and meets Zinaida Alexandrovna Zasyekina, a beautiful 21-­year-­old woman, staying with her mother, Princess Zasyekina, in a wing of the manor. This family, as with many of the Russian minor nobility with royal ties of that time, were only afforded a degree of respectability because of their titles; the Zasyekins, in the case of this story, are a very poor family. The young Vladimir falls irretrievably in love with Zinaida, who has a set of several other socially more eligible suitors whom he joins in their difficult and often fruitless search for the young lady's favour.

In this fourth volume, Proust’s novel takes up for the first time the theme of homosexual love and examines how destructive sexual jealousy can be for those who suffer it. Sodom and Gomorrah is also an unforgiving analysis of both the decadent high society of Paris and the rise of a philistine bourgeoisie that will inevitably supplant it.
