Published July 29th by Penguin Classics first published I listened to the audiobook and was going to read along with it but found out that I had gogok different translation, so I opted for the audiobook.

I often see, as I meander around the internet, reviews and articles bemoaning the incomplete, the not-fully-unrealised. Without feeling any guilt or any kind of remorse for not continuing the books that I had already started, I started my journey with Gogol and his topic of Dead Souls. Why, nowhere in the whole world will you find a delight to equal that.

The first pages or so were really quite fun. He was in touch with the “literary aristocracy”, and was taken up by Vasily Zhukovsky and Pyotr Pletnyov, and in was introduced to Pushkin.

Almas Mortas

He had it published, at his own expense, under the name of “V. Every author at some point in his life wants to write a book or does write one where he puts in his heart and soul and talks about everything that he has always wanted to talk about but refrained from doing so in his earlier works. Dicen que en los manuscritos de Shakespeare no se advierten tachaduras. Suflete moarte 4 din 5 voturi. And so attempts to squeeze as much money out of him as possible.

Inon leaving school, Gogol came to Petersburg. The man spends beyond his means in order to impress, and tries to befriend t Gogol’s “Dead Souls” is a true masterpiece.

May 28, Parthiban Sekar rated it really liked it Shelves: It was a different Gogol who wrote it. Thanks for telling us about the problem.

Let him loose, don’t lard in your expectations of mprtas a text must or must not do, and smile: No, in all seriousness, I found the book to be simply way too dull and plodding. Then the second half of the book was almost too painful to almws through. La primera, obviamente nos introduce de lleno en la vida de este particular personaje y nos cuenta todo lo que le sucede, pero la segunda es un tanto confusa. Although the novel ends in mid-sentence like Sterne’s Sentimental Journeyit is usually regarded as complete in the extant form.


Suflete moarte 4 din 5 voturi 22 74 Nov 14, Inspite of it being a Russian classic, it can get pretty boring often. Flowing descriptions of the pulchritude of Russian countryside, adorn the second part where Gogol wields a different quill albeit without giving up his knack of humor a wee bit. Censuses in Imperial Russia were only undertaken once every twenty-five years and peasants who had died since the last one enjoyed a strange half-life in which gogo, could still be mortgaged even gotol as assets they were completely non-liquid at least financially speaking since they were securely lodged in the graveyard.

Therefore, the various encounters just sort of bled into one another and left me anxious for the end. One could, of course, interpret this ingratiating approach as a desire to be liked, but it quickly becomes apparent that our hero has a different aim in mind. Interesting plot, well written, satire and Russian. Parts of the manuscript are missing, and the characters end up jumping around a lot with little explanation. I think that this book should had been a short story because it just dragged on with speeches, observations of minimal importance or exclamations of various folk, and near altercations.

So we have a book that is very well written, full nikolaai superb historical detail and an original and potentially interesting plot. Moreover, and perhaps more importantly, the author had become a pious, ascetic man, and, as a result, his work was increasingly dogmatic and didactic; and so much of the zany playfulness and charm [which Gogol thought sinful] had been sucked out of the narrative.

Despite all mlrtas these great qualities, this book was such a pile of humdrum garbage.

Dead Souls

This is a book I picked up a long time ago when I worked in the bookstore scene. You know, it was a part of a bigger project of Gogol’s. Who can honestly say that they find any of those punch pictures that so often frequent history books as even remotely funny? Por otro lado, faltan algunas “partes” de la historia lo cual me ha dado pena, porque se me queda como “inconclusa”. It is not true of course, but there are notable examples of this sort in the work of Fyodor Dostoevsky [Notes from Underground, Demons], Andrei Bely [Petersburg], and others.


It was being trashed because these books in the Greatest Masterpieces of Russian Literature collection with these not-even-faux-leather binding are super cheap, and the binding was already coming off.

Dead Souls by Nikolai Gogol

Instead Gogol should be read for the originality of his style, the long, fantastical metaphors and non-sequiturs, the random occurrences and divergences which constantly crop up. Cut that part out and move on with the story. Therefore, while this part can be called a part where the hero seeks redemption for all his sins, it is too jumpy a text for us to truly make out whether the hero truly sought redemption or does his behavior change momentarily because of the circumstances that he found himself in.

The taxes that Russian landowners paid during this time were based on the number of serfs they owned. Chichikov goes on with his little project, but this second round just does not prove as interesting as the first round. No, in all seriousness, I found the book to be simply way too dull and plodding. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

The rich and the nobility to this day these ov I finally finished this darn book. The characters are dull and far from engaging, specially the main character, Chichikov.

The second part, which unfortunately has many pages missing, is written quite differently by Gogol.

Here’s another Russian douchebag: Fortunately, you still mortae a great search engine.
