Dead Souls By Nikolai Gogol
eBook (ePub): $1.35
Since its publication in 1842, Dead Souls has been celebrated as a supremely realistic portrait of provincial Russian life and as a splendidly exaggerated tale; as a paean to the Russian spirit and... More > as a remorseless satire of imperial Russian venality, vulgarity, and pomp. As Gogol's wily antihero, Chichikov, combs the back country wheeling and dealing for "dead souls"--deceased serfs who still represent money to anyone sharp enough to trade in them--we are introduced to a Dickensian cast of peasants, landowners, and conniving petty officials, few of whom can resist the seductive illogic of Chichikov's proposition.< Less

More > -ɡɔːl/; Russian: Никола́й Васи́льевич Го́голь, tr. Nikolay Vasilievich Gogol; IPA: [nʲɪkɐˈlaj vɐˈsʲilʲjɪvʲɪtɕ ˈgogəlʲ]; 31 March [O.S. 19 March] 1809 – 4 March [O.S. 21 February] 1852) was a Russian dramatist, novelist and short story writer of Ukrainian ethnicity. Russian and Ukrainian scholars debate whether or not Gogol was of their respective nationalities. Considered by his contemporaries one of the preeminent figures of the natural school of Russian literary realism, later critics have found in Gogol's work a fundamentally romantic sensibility, with strains of Surrealism and the grotesque ("The Nose", "Viy", "The Overcoat," "Nevsky Prospekt").

Before God created light, there was darkness. Even after He illuminated the world, there were shadows — shadows that allowed the darkness to fester and infect the unwary. The tales found... More > within Dead Souls explore the recesses of the soul; those people and creatures that could not escape the shadows. From the inherent cruelness of humanity to malevolent forces, Dead Souls explores the depths of humanity as a lesson to the ignorant, the naive and the unsuspecting. God created light, but it is a temporary grace that will ultimately fail us, for the darkness is stronger and our souls…are truly dead.< Less

Dead Souls By Nikolay Gogol
eBook (ePub): $2.99
The Dead Souls written by Nikolay Gogol in 1842 is not only a masterpiece of Russian literature but also a deep timeless social satire. The plot is evolving around enterprising protagonist Mr.... More > Chichikov who is being sent to a small town NN where he is buying from local landlords “dead souls or the rights to own serfs which are “souls” only on the property register, but not a living people. (In Russian Empire before the emancipation of the serfs in 1861, landowners had rights to own serfs to farm their land; serfs were considered the properties of the landowner, who could buy, sell and mortgage them). By masterfully depicting a series of characters such as Korobochka, Plushkin, Manilov and others, Gogol creates compelling collective images of his contemporaries which appear to be quite likable, but at the same time they strike the reader with their greed, ignorance, hypocrisy, venality and pomposity - all are characteristics of the 19th century Russian society.< Less

This is the famed Gogol's unfinished novel as translated by google translate, which is to say that it's total gibberish, which, in its turn, is to say that you don't really have to read it (I didn't... More > although I should one day because I brought it into being after all, and it might be fun) but you certainly want to have it. Think of it as a coffee table book to be casually picked up and as casually put back where it belongs.< Less
