ProduktinfoGogol’s great Russian classic is the Pickwick Papers of Russian Literature. It takes a sharp but humorous look at life in all its strata, but especially the devious complexities in the country with its landowners and serfs. We are introduced to Chichikov, a businessman who, in order to trick the tax authorities, buys up dead ‘souls’ or serfs whose names still appear on the government census. Despite being a dealer in phantom crimes and paper ghosts, he is the most beguiling of Gogol’s characters. Gogol’s obsession with attempting to display ‘the untold riches of the Russian soul’ eventually led him to madness, religious mania and death. Dismissed by him as merely ‘a pale introduction to the great epic poem which is taking shape in my mind’, Dead Souls is the culmination of Gogol’s genius.
KlappentextGogol's great 1842 classic is a comic masterpiece and one of the major works of Russian literature. When Pavel Ivanovich Chichikov takes up a new residence, he is set to carry out his bizarre plan to purchase the souls of dead peasants that once inhabited the town. Dead Souls takes a sharp but humorous look at life in all its strata, but especially the devious complexities in the country with its landowners and serfs.
