    We all came from Gogol s overcoat Fyodor DostoevskyDuring my childhood, like many other kids, I was also in the habit of listening to bedtime stories They were usually told by my father or my grandmother My granny stuck to stories she knew already, either related to her life in her village or some anecdotes related to Hindu Mythology where there is no dearth of tales My father however had to come up with a new story every time in an on the spot manner These stories used to be sweet, simple, at times illogical but enjoyable nevertheless The topics used to vary but the purpose was the same, to put me to sleep with sweet thoughts in my head to carry forward to the dream world These are the luxuries one enjoys being a child but soon our dependence on such stories fades away and inadvertently we start finding solace in a complicated network of words to excite us.Lately I ve been reading some twisted literature and enjoy it too but thanks to Italo Calvino, I also became particularly inclined to short stories and started looking for some g...

    Do you remember that bit in Through the Looking glass where the Red Queen turns into a sheep Oh, much better cried the Queen, her voice rising into a squeak as she went on Much be etter Be etter Be e e etter Be e ehh The last word ended in a long bleat, so like a sheep that Alice quite started.She looked at the Queen, who seemed to have suddenly wrapped herself up in wool Alice rubbed her eyes, and looked again She couldn t make out what had happened at all Was she in a shop And was that really was it really a sheep that was sitting on the other side of the counter When I was a kid I was obsessed by this passage That a writer should make things up was something I accepted instinctively nothing could be natural than to invent incidents, people, even whole species, for a story But that the basic preconditions of reality the laws of physics, the relationship between senses and experience that these could be simply ignored, or blended at will that a queen could become a sheep, mid sentence, with no explanation considered necessary that just blew my mind.I reread this little section endlessly, amazed by how I would fall for the sleight of hand even while aware of it And that nonsensic...

    First this is not The Complete Tales The unlearned distinction between Collected Complete has angered completists the world over Collected means incomplete a mixtape of works that constitute, critically, the best this writer has to offer Complete means the totted up totality, depending upon what is being completed, i.e Complete Works is ambiguous and open to omissions, depending on what is classed as a work prose plays Just assume a fuller completion when it s Complete, not Collected Except in those rare moments when Collected means Complete In the case of Gogol, Yale U Press have the one Complete Tales in print, in two volumes, incorrectly lumped with the Collected Tales eds This beautiful Everyman s hardcover edition and, presumably, the paperback equivs omit a slab of material from Evenings on a Farm Near Dikanka, which only exists as an old Oxford paperback conflated with Mirgorod stories, suggesting the work is so lacklustre it doesn t bear reprinting For the sake of tedious exactitude, this edition omits all the story fragments, and, from Evenings The Fair at Sorochints , May Night or the Drowned Maiden, The Lost Letter, A Bewitched Place From <...

    To those interested in the short fiction of Gogol, I couldn t recommend a better collection All the masterpieces are here, the selection is representative, the translation is vigorous, and the introduction is informative and helpful.Of course the masterpieces of the St Petersburg period are here The Nose, The Diary of a Madman, Nevsky Prospect, The Overcoat , Gogol s macabre and satiric depictions of humiliation and madness among the bureaucrats of Russia s capital city, but the masterpieces of Gogol s Ukrainian period are here also St John s Eve, The Night Before Christmas, The Terrible Vengeance, Viy , those exuberantly improvisational riffs on folklore themes filled with witches, wizards, and exorcisms plus a czarina s slippers, a flight on the back of a devil, and a monster whose eyelids stretch all the way down to its feet The St Petersburg tale s are well known, but the Ukrainian tales are an equally valid and vivid and high spirited expression of Gogol s genius.I am, however, happy to see that some of the lesser tales fine stories, only lesser when compared with Gogol s best are here too, giving the reader a balanced and representative sampling of the author s work From the Ukraine, we have the mundane accounts of Ukrainian small town and country life Ivan Fyodorovich Shponka and His Aunt, Old World Landowners, The Story of How Ivan Ivanovich Quarreled with Ivan Nikiforovich which show us a somewhat sunnier side of Gogol, and from St Petersburg, we have...

    Nikolai Gogol, based on the image results my Google search spat back, reminds me of that quietly excited classmate who s usually game to tag along with you for some mischief making Whoopee cushions and joy buzzers presumably hadn t been around then, so one shudders at the tricks his imagination must ve improvised From his eyes shines a look too knowing not to have exposed his hastily planned cover ups and landed him in a few or hundred detentions, spent here sweeping grounds and there copying lines In short my kinda guy Russian literature, since books began making me feel things, has been for me that scary mountain whose lack of obvious footholds has sent me running home into the squishier bosoms of easier genres, whose peak is peopled with happy campers roasting marshmallows while animatedly discussing scenes from this Dostoevsky classic or that Tolstoy epic What sure hand would, as soon as I attempt the climb, save me from tripping over the first loose rock and snap my neck Gogol s, while mindful to point out where not to step, wouldn t hold mine, yet what convinced me to turn to his works first of all was learning of the ripples they ca...

    My first reaction to Gogol was bewilderment It s funny, and engaging to read, butwhat the hell is it about I m not sure what the point of Diary of a Madman is, although I know I enjoyed it.Pevear and Volokhonsky s intro is helpful, although it contains a number of minor spoilers Their point is that if you try to understand Gogol, you are failing Gogol himself didn t understand Gogol We still do not know what Gogol is, says some guy they quoted PV write that Gogol, as compared to traditional storytellers, has nothing in mind Memory plays no part in his work He does not know where the act of writing will lead him Pushkin, an early and ardent supporter, wrote, Here is real gaiety honest, unconstrained, without mincing, without primness And in places, what poetry What sensitivity All this is so unusual in our present day literature that I still haven t recovered And that seems fair to me It s still unusual now although at least we have Borges maybe we should shut up about what it means and just have a good time with it.2017 11 17 Diary of a MadmanThe madman is a clerk, and right away hears two dogs chatting One belongs to the directir s hot daughter Never mind, never mind Silence The dogs are corresponding by letter he steals the letters to find out about the daughter Meanwhile, Spain is in turm...

    3.8.Many of the Ukrainian Tales are almost physically painful to read, though they contain a few moments which made me laugh out loud Starting with Ivan Fyodorovich Shponka and His Aunt , the stories begin to get a lot of fun I was particularly struck by Gogol s descriptions of the titular characters friendship and its end in How Ivan Ivanovich Quarreled with Ivan Nikiforovich , and found that...

    Even if he had published nothing but Dead Souls, Gogol would still have a claim to be one of Ukraine s all time greatest novelists Luckily for us, he kept writing, and these excellent short stories show that his transition to becoming a Russian writer did not dampen his humor or invention one bit This collection shows off both sides of Gogol s output first, the strange, magical Ukrainian stories full of drunken peasants, quarreling landowners, hilarious religious bigotry, and fantastical adventures that he wrote to exoticize his homeland to his new Russian friends Second, there s the conceptual St Petersburg stories, which have realist settings but no less surreal plots, with maddening bureaucracies, inexplicable transformations, and copious humiliations for the unfortunate denizens of the Russian capital The second half has the famous stories like The Nose and The Overcoat, which show Gogol s gift for presenting absurd situations in a straightforward, even poignant way, bu...

    There s not a bad story in this batch But I especially loved Nevsky Prospect and The Story of How Ivan Ivanovich Quarreled with Ivan Nikiforovich These are long stories, but they are cozy and full of life stories that I want to read out loud by a campfire Nobody alternates between the absurdly comical and the frightfully chilling like Gogol The first half Ukrainian Tales tells stories that are mystical in nature, sounding sometimes like folktales, dealing with witches and devils The second half Petersburg Tales have some of that as well, but surreal unexplained occurrences like The Nose and other oddities Gogol makes hilarious observations about his characters and their hypocrisies He also inserts his own or his persona s storyteller voice in almost every story, wedging himself inside of them sometimes the narrator s voice adds a whole new dimension to the basic story would ha...

    Gogol s tales in this book are split into two distinct sections The first is concerned mostly with life in Ukraine in the early 19th century and is filled with superstitious people and the demons and devils they interact with regularly The stories are tremendously funny but also strange and dark, mysterious in the best, most inexplicable way I was reminded at times of the short work of Hawthorne, in which dark creatures often seem to be lurking in the woods, but Gogol feels modern somehow The second part deals with Petersburg and is decidedly surreal In The Nose, a...
