Instead Gogol should be read for the originality of his style, the long, fantastical metaphors and non-sequiturs, the random occurrences and divergences which constantly crop up.

Chichikov es un hombre refinado, pero taimado, tiene una avaricia por la ggool de almas que lo transforma en un comprador lisonjero y astuto y es capaz de hacer cualquier cosa con tal de conseguir lo que quiere. You know, it was a part of a bigger project of Gogol’s. To return to my watch analogy, I am of the latter sort; I am happy to have these novels in their imperfect state, to take them on face value.

I want to read this book but I have some reservations about its integrity. The book is pretty light-hearted, with very little serious drama in it.

Lists with This Book. Gogol himself considered this a prose poem, and I suspect he called it that so he’d be free of the shackles of novelistic convention. The characters are dull and far from engaging, specially the main character, Chichikov.

All instruments were represented, the drum, the flute, and a strange abrupt note, like the yap of a dog. I should point out, then, before we continue, that this review is, in the main, only concerned with volume one. It cannot be refuted that there is a growing desire to acquire wealth behind his business visits. I believed in this Russian classic by a notable master. The various characters Chichikov encounters were intended to portray various types of Russians and I guess I was not familiar enough with the period to understand the nuances and thus the intended caricature that Gogal was trying to highlight.

What gives Dead Souls its depth, and the satire more of a sting, is how it engages with questions and issues concerning masters and slaves, poverty and wealth, power and corruption.

Or are you happy to have it as it is, opining that you have gained something, rather than moftas out, because you cannot lose something that jikolai was [the nikolxi had never and could For my review of Fernando Pessoa’s The Book of Disquiet I asked you to imagine that someone has given you a beautiful old watch, a gift with a catch, which is that it unfortunately does not work, is not, somehow, whole.


However, my low regard for this book has little to do with the second volume. Despite the erratic storytelling style, ‘Dead Souls’ has historical value as a vivid essay on the endemic corruption of Tsarist Russia.

We all are a part of that and beyond a point not willful perpetrators but just so hard pressed by life that there is little or no time to bother. But it’s the first great Russian novel, and you can see prototypes here for Raskolnikov and Tolstoy’s great conflicted landowner Levin.

I had to read the book and understand why D, one of my favourite authors, felt so moved and inspired by it. My only claims as to the knowledge of this work were cursory references of Dostoevsky and the likes, and I somehow expected it to be miles away from humour let alone comedy forming heart of the matter. The very nature of country people thinking about leaving their homelands and vacuously dreaming about a lucrative life in the cities, without knowing that the real treasure is right under their feet and before their eyes, is vividly conveyed through his zany characters who would throw a dinner party even when his serfs are hungry for days.

As it is, we often have occasion to see things gogok are far from comforting. Vivid, surreal, funny, almost silly, as Gogol is. Chichikov is a wiener.

Gogol’s I feel like this could be a great book, but it, quite simply, went right over my head. Here’s a Russian douchebag. With the amount of characters and this tendency to drift away, I often felt a little lost and had to play catch up.


The OvercoatI abandoned this almaz longer, unfinished novel with the same cynical worldview. I finally took the opportunity to read it now, in April, because I needed something Russian for a group I’m in, and it seemed as good a time as any. The first part represented the Inferno; the second part was to depict the gradual purification and transformation of the rogue Chichikov under the influence of virtuous publicans and nikokai — Purgatory.

La primera, obviamente nos introduce de lleno en la vida de este particular personaje y nos cuenta todo lo que le sucede, pero la segunda es un tanto confusa.
