Based on diaries and letters by a husband, wife, and son, this book examines the Chikhachev family's social life, reading habits, attitudes toward illness and death, as well as gendered marital roles and their reception of the major ideas of their time: domesticity, Enlightenment, sentimentalism, and Romanticism.
