It isn't as hard to read as some people think. My advice if you have trouble reading books written in an "older" way of speaking is to treat it like a fun puzzle or riddle, like a code. After you read something that was difficult to comprehend, go back and work to decipher it until you figure it out. When you're done with the verse, stop and mentally put it into more "modern" sentences. It should be enjoyable!

On the Eve: On the Eve is one of Turgenev’s finest novels, a poignant love story that is equally acclaimed as a portrait of Russian society in the 1850s. The innocence and idealism of the younger characters contrast with the world-weary older generation.
