"Diary of a Madman" recounts one man's struggle to be noticed by the woman he loved. His diary records his gradual slide into insanity, where he finally achieves the greatness that has eluded him in real life. Gogol's fascination with the demonic and the irrational ultimately contributed to his own death. While he was on an extended fast, his over-zealous doctors applied leeches to his face in an attempt to alleviate his condition. But the reports show that the only effect of this treatment was to hasten the untimely and somewhat grotesque demise of this most unorthodox playwright.

by Bamber Gascoigne
Nikolay (Vasilyevich) Gogol (1809-1852) Great Russian novelist, dramatist, satirist, founder of the so-called critical realism in Russian literature, best-known for his novel MERTVYE DUSHI I-II (1842, Dead Souls). Gogol's prose is characterized by imaginative power and linguistic playfulness. As an exposer of grotesque in human nature, Gogol could be called the Hieronymus Bosch of Russian literature. "The moon is made by some lame cooper, and you can see the idiot has no idea about moons at all. He put in a creosoted rope and some wood oil; and this has led to such a terrible stink all over the earth that you have to hold your nose. Another reason the moon is such a tender globe it that people just cannot live on it any more, and all that's left alive there are noses. This is also why we cannot see our own noses - they're all on the moon." (from Diary of a Madman

NIKOLAI GOGOL (1809-1852) The following article was originally published in Revizor, A Comedy NIKOLAI VASILEVICH GOGOL was born at Sorotchinetz, in Little Russia, in March, 1809, the exact day being impossible to discover. The year in which he appeared on the planet proved to be the literary annus mirabilis of the century; for in this same twelvemonth were born Charles Darwin, Alfred Tennyson, Abraham Lincoln, Poe, Gladstone, Holmes, Chopin, and Mendelssohn. His father was a literary amateur, who wrote dramatic pieces for his own amusement, and who spent his time on the old family estate, not in managing the farms, but in wandering about the gardens and beholding the fowls of the air. The boy inherited much from his father; but he had the best of all private tutors, a good mother, of whom his biographer says, Elle demeure toujours sa plus intime amie At the age of twelve, Nikolai was sent away to the high school at Nyezhin, a town near Kiev. There he remained from 1821 to 1828. He was a poor student, having no enthusiasm for his lessons, and showing no distinction either in scholarship or deportment. Fortunately, however, the school had a theatre of its own, and Gogol, who hated mathematics, and cared little for the study of modern languages, here found an outlet for all his mental energy. He soon became the acknowledged leader of the school in matters dramatic, and unconsciously prepared himself for his future career. Like

The Calash by Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol
The town of B had become very lively since a cavalry regiment had taken up its quarters in it. Up to that date it had been mortally wearisome there. When you happened to pass through the town and glanced at its little mud houses with their incredibly gloomy aspect, the pen refuses to express what you felt. You suffered a terrible uneasiness as if you had just lost all your money at play, or had committed some terrible blunder in company. The plaster covering the houses, soaked by the rain, had fallen away in many places from their walls, which from white had become streaked and spotted, whilst old reeds served to thatch them. Following But Society consisted up till then of the judge who was living with a deacon's wife, and of the chief of police, a very sensible man, but one who slept all day long from dinner till evening, and from evening till dinner-time. This Amongst these latter was above all conspicuous Pythagoras Pythagoravitch Tchertokoutski, one of the leading aristocrats of the district of B, the most fiery orator at the nobiliary elections and the owner of a very elegant turn-out. He had served in a cavalry regiment and had even passed for one of its most accomplished officers, having constantly shown himself at all the balls and parties wherever his regiment was quartered. Information respecting him may be asked of all the young ladies in the districts of Tamboff and Simbirsk. He would very probably have further extended his reputation in other districts if he had not been obliged to leave the service in consequence of one of those affairs which are spoken of as "a very unpleasant business." Had he given or received a blow? I cannot say with certainty, but what is indisputable is that he was asked to send in his resignation. However, this accident had no unpleasant effect upon the esteem in which he had been held up till then.

From New World Encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation search Previous (Nikolai Chernyshevsky) Next (Nikolai Kondratiev) Nikolai Gogol Nikolai Vasilevich Gogol Russian ) (March 31, 1809 – March 4, 1852) was a Ukrainian -born Russian writer. Although many of his works were influenced by his Ukrainian heritage and upbringing, he wrote in the Russian language and his works are among the most beloved in the tradition of Russian literature Gogol is seen by most critics as the first Russian realist . His biting satire, comic realism, and descriptions of Russian provincials and petty bureaucrats influenced later Russian masters Leo Tolstoy Ivan Turgenev , and especially Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Many of Gogol's witty sayings have since become Russian maxims. Gogol's best-known works, his play The Inspector General; short stories "The Nose" and "The Overcoat;" and novel Dead Souls demonstrate a wit comparable to that of English satirist Jonathan Swift . His comic short story, "The Overcoat," about the trials and humiliations of a low-level clerk, was a clear precedent for Dostoyevsky's protagonists in Notes from the Underground and Crime and Punishment —a debt Dostoyevsky famously acknowledged in his tribute, "We all came out of Gogol's 'Overcoat.'" Gogol's historical romance Taras Bulba, unlike his satirical portrayals of provincial life, presents a heroic account of Russian spirit and character and influenced later literary conceptions of the "Russian Soul." Praised by the Russian critic Belinski as "worthy of Homer,"

A comedy in five acts translated by Thomas Seltzer from the Russian of
Nicolay Gogol
The Inspector-General is a national institution. To place a purely literary valuation upon it and call it the greatest of Russian comedies would not convey the significance of its position either in Russian literature or in Russian life itself. There is no other single work in the modern literature of any language that carries with it the wealth of associations which the Inspector-General does to the educated Russian. The Germans have their Faust; but Faust is a tragedy with a cosmic philosophic theme. In England it takes nearly all that is implied in the comprehensive name of Shakespeare to give the same sense of bigness that a Russian gets from the mention of the Revizor.
This unique character of Russian literature may be said to have had its beginning with the Inspector-General. Before Gogol most Russian writers, with few exceptions, were but weak imitators of foreign models. The drama fashioned itself chiefly upon French patterns. The Inspector-General and later Gogol's novel, Dead Souls, established that tradition in Russian letters which was followed by all the great writers from Dostoyevsky down to Gorky.
What wonder that the Inspector-General became a sort of comedy-epic in the land of the Czars, the land where each petty town-governor is almost an absolute despot, regulating his persecutions and extortions according to the sage saying of the town-governor in the play, "That's the way God made the world, and the Voltairean free-thinkers

LESSON 6 The Rise of Prose: Nikolai Gogol
Study Notes
The Rise of Prose
The great achievement of this age of prose, from the 1840s to the 1890s, was Russian Realism (discussed in the sequel to this course, Russ 3422Russian Literature: Tolstoy to the Present). Our concern here is to have a look at the beginnings of Russian prose. We have seen that after 1830 Pushkin turned more and more to prose, a significant fact given that Pushkin was the greatest poet of the time. The writer who did most to establish prose as a force in Russian literary culture, however, was Gogol. Gogol's example, combined with the authoritative literary pronouncements of the greatest literary critic of the period, V. G. Belinsky, established prose as the literary medium of the future. The great novelist Dostoevsky is supposed to have said, referring to himself and his fellow Realists, "We have all come out from under Gogol's 'Overcoat'" (referring to the famous story by Gogol).
Nikolai Gogol (1809-1852)
Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol was born in the Mirgorod district of the Ukraine in 1809. His early life was spent on his father's country estate. Gogol's father was also a writer; his works, many of which were written for the Ukrainian puppet theater, are in Ukrainian, and he is classed as a Ukrainian writer. His son, however, decided to write in Russian. Nikolai Gogol moved to St. Petersburg in 1828 with the intention of becoming a full-time professional writer. His first published work, a long narrative in verse, was received with indifference by the critics, and the sensitive Gogol fled from Russia in shame. When he returned from Europe in 1829, Gogol first tried to find work as an actor, but was eventually forced to take a minor post in the civil service to support himself. His experiences in the government bureaucracy are reflected in some of his later stories, especially "The Nose" and "The Overcoat."

From 1836 to 1846 he lived in Italy. During this time he laid the foundations of 19th-century Russian realism with his masterpiece, the novel Dead Souls (1842), a satire about serfdom and bureaucratic inequities in which he hoped to castigate abuses and guide his countrymen through laughter, and his story "The Overcoat" (1842). His collected stories (1842) received great acclaim. Soon afterward he came under the influence of a fanatical priest who prompted him to burn the manuscript of the second volume of Dead Souls . He died a few days later at age 42, perhaps of intentional starvation, on the verge of madness.

Customer Reviews
Some Errors But Not Bad I bought this book to read Taras Bulba having become curious about the story from its adaptation into music by Leos Janacek. Taras makes up the majority of the book at 122 pages (from 285) and although I did not give much thought to the other stories in the book they are masterly and a joy to read. I was quite unprepared for the satanic rites of St. John's Eve and the character study of The Cloak is very good. How The Two Ivans Quarreled is a comic story about an imagined insult that goes way beyond an argument. The Mysterious Portrait is a supernatural story about a painting of an old man that appears to be incredibly life-like and The Calash. There is an introduction by John Cornos who provides a bibliography of other editions of Gogol's writings but it is a mystery as to who has translated the stories in this edition. The language is good and the stories read well but there are occasional misspelling (for example Ha for Has) and there are footnotes that are difficult to read because the letters overlap. There also are pages where one line will go over the margin. Despite the errors, this edition of Gogol is not bad and the mistakes are not excessive but one does wonder if anyone proof read the book and just did not care.
