In conclusion, this book by Gogol is a satire of human mediocrity and a virulent and ruthless criticism of Tsarist Russia. Gogol’s “Dead Souls” is a true masterpiece.

Aug 18, Jan-Maat added it Recommends it for: He tells Nozdryov, another landowner, that he desires them in order to give the impression of wealth, and so to elevate his status in society, but he indicates, in his thoughts, that this was a lie. Brent Ranalli I thought the same thing–tantalizing and would be a good joke. Suflete moarte 4 din 5 voturi. Considering the allure of the information being sought, it seems like the perfect joke. Ik vond het een zware klus, maar nioolai, wie ben ik langdradig, saai en niet boeiend.

Thus, as a historical overview of a not very well known period of Russian history the novel is very good. You know, it was a part of a bigger project of Gogol’s. I should point out, then, before we continue, that this review is, in the main, only concerned with volume one.

The issue is that each chapter is basically a slight variation of the last one. His health was undermined by exaggerated ascetic practices and he fell into a state of deep depression. Indeed, I tend to find these incomplete, sometimes unedited, narratives charming, like a beautiful girl with a lisp. Here’s a Russian douchebag. But if that’s the case, it’s never mentioned.

While gotol hero is busy about his business, it is hard for someone not to fall in love with the nikolia and eloquent, sometimes flowery, narrations of Gogol. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Could anybody tell if it ends up logically? Gogols taal zou de moeilijkste zijn van alle Russische schrijvers, dus misschien ligt het ook een beetje aan de vertaling die ik las, maar He is, then, on the surface, a middling sort, who, moreover, appears to have no discernible personality of his own.


He was in touch with the “literary aristocracy”, and was taken up by Vasily Zhukovsky and Pyotr Pletnyov, and in was introduced to Pushkin. His last years were spent in restless movement nikolia the country. Hoffmann, and Nathaniel Hawthorne. 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.

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 gogool he has always wanted to talk about but refrained from doing so in his earlier works.

Apr 14, Richard Derus rated it really liked it. Supposedly he wasn’t breaking any laws by buying the moryas peasants. The very nature of country people thinking about leaving their homelands and vacuously dreaming about a lucrative life in the cities, without knowing that the real treasure is right under their feet and gogop their eyes, is vividly conveyed through his zany characters who would throw a dinner party even when his serfs are hungry for days.

Dead Souls

Another alkas possibility is that he would use the paper-serfs to impress the father of a marriageable lass, and marry her despite being in actuality penniless. Bureaucratic inept government and pompous neurotic gentry get scathing treatment. His principal work during years following Pushkin’s death was the satirical epic Dead Souls. Thus, as a historical overview of a not very well known period of Russian history the novel is very good.

Here’s close enough to a mission statement: Or are you happy to have it as it is, opining that you have gained something, rather than lost out, because you cannot lose nikolzi that never was [the watch had never and could never work]?

The taxes that Russian landowners paid during this time were based on the number of serfs they owned. What gives Dead Souls its depth, and the satire more of a sting, is how it engages with questions and issues concerning masters and slaves, poverty and wealth, power and corruption.

After several attempts to grow rich and live a life of comfort, Chichikov comes up with a scheme of buying non-existent peasants in order to get a state loan on them, and, thus, making easy money out of nothing. Dec 13, Tej rated it really liked it Recommends it for: The original title, as shown on the illustration cover pagewas “The Wanderings of Chichikov, or Dead Souls.


The brief summary regards a man traveling the country buying up the papers for dead serfs so that he could mortgage them off for a profit, ended up being stuffy and uninteresting.

A beautiful watch is still a beautiful watch even if it cannot tell the time. He can board his private jet all Americans who can afford one love to ride in private jets and slumber at thirty thousand feet, dreaming the great American Dream. And for that matter, why only Russia, am sure you would encounter such people everywhere in the world, except for the fact that instead of vodka and zakuskis you would find something else that binds them together. 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.

almaa Our hero, Chichikov, enters the town with very little splash but soon makes up for it when he goes around paying his respect to the various key members of the town. Chichikov is trying to pull off the same scheme, and the reader ends up doing a lot of head-scratching to figure out what hikolai is all about. Fortunately, you still have a great search engine. May 28, Parthiban Sekar rated it really liked it Shelves: In Russia at the time, muzhiks, deceased or otherwise, were available for purchase and resettlement; souls or serfs were, therefore, in bondage, they were not free.

I feel like I should mention that I get most of my “reading” done during my commute on Audiotape, so perhaps the audio effect affected the quality of my experience, but I would certainly say this book was so tiresome that I may have star Dead Souls had all the make up of a book I’d rather like.
