It’s funny how similar Bazarov and Pavel are, though come to it from opposite directions.

Pavel, constrained by society once tried to ‘live’ but now is pretty much a walking, wounded corpse. Bazarov knows great love but denies everything and too is a walking and wounded corpse. He’s even constrained by his own society, though he’d never admit it.

No wonder they tried to let the other kill them.
