The name of the hero of the novel "Oblomov" by Ivan Goncharov has become a common noun, and the concept of "Oblomovism" has become commonplace. Who is he? The author writes: "It was a man of thirty-two or three of a kind, of medium height, of a pleasant appearance, with dark gray eyes, but with the absence of any definite idea, of all concentration in facial features." Ilya Oblomov - "extra people" in the Russian society of the nineteenth century. He was accustomed to the fact that everyone else was doing for him, but when he came to Petersburg, he saw something different and could not withstand the difficulties.
Translated from the Russian by Charles J. Hogarth
