Gogol Collected Tales


Formats & editions


From the acclaimed translators of Crime and Punishment and The Brothers Karamazov comes this superb translation of the short fiction of Nikolai Gogol, the nineteenth-century Russian master.

Collected here are Gogol’s finest tales - stories which combine the wide-eyed, credulous imagination of the peasant with the sardonic social criticism of the city dweller - allowing readers to experience anew the unmistakable genius of a writer who paved the way of Dostoevsky and Kakfa. All of Gogol’s most memorable creations are here: the minor official who misplaces his nose, the downtrodden clerk whose life is changed by the acquisition of a splendid new overcoat, the wily madman who becomes convinced that a dog can tell him everything he needs to know. The wholly unique blend of satire and realism that Gogol crafted established his reputation as one of the most daring and inventive writers of his time.
