Мертвые души

REVIEW » Мертвые души Tutto nelle Anime morte è sotto il segno di uesta degradante e ormai diabolica trivialità ma il vero seppure più segreto campione ne è Cicikov il signore di mezza tacca le cui manie. The book goes way back to 1842 before Russian serfs were emancipated in 1861 It s considered a picaresue novel Don uixote ish a journey with a lot of satire and absurd situations with a rascal as a main character a man who always has a get rich uick scheme going He s kind of happy go lucky a drinker gambler liar There are than 2000 reviews on GR so I ll be brief In this story the main character is buying dead souls papers from other property owners whose serfs died ownership of serfs went with the property The point was to reduce his tax burden since serfs were taxed unless he had papers showing they had died In the process we learn about life in Russia at the time masters and peasants He travels by coach with two servants and goes to a lot of taverns gambling Each negotiation to buy serfs is different We attend high society balls The author comments a lot on language Russian and French the provinces vs the cities and we Russians vs French British Germans and English There s humor but ultimately hopelessness of ever changing the conditions of serfdom A Russian classic Painting A Peasant Leaving His Landlord on Yuriev Day by Sergei V Ivanov 1908Russian stamp honoring the author from previews123rfcomimagesartnanaart

REVIEW » Мертвые души E monumento vivente alla legge del comm 'il faut si spalanca ad allegoria del vuoto e del non essere è una liscia gradevole sfera che contiene il nulla dall'introduzione di Serena Vita. The longer and carefully we look at a funny story the sadder it becomes Nikolai GogolBefore saying anything else I think I must begin with my association with this novel It was that period of my age years and years ago when I had read only a few books most of them incomplete yet I used to impress my friends with that precocious intelligence I gathered from those books devoured by me in such scanty doses And what about my knowledge of Russian literature then That was extraordinarily abundant even at that time Was that a joke Indeed it wasIf you had asked me to name any two authors of Russia then I would have said the first name in a very confident tone Tolstoy and second name after a pause of a few seconds I could have uttered aforementioned in full with little dignity The Leo Tolstoy Yes That is true I was not aware of any other name What a pity No I was like an infant still swinging in my cradle of innocent ignorance as long as the book reading was concerned I was a newbie After some time when I started reading contemporary authors I was reading a book by Jhumpa Lahiri There for the first time I encountered this uniue name GOGOLJhumpa had created a fictitious character there in her plot whose name was Gogol I thought then that she might have been inspired by the modern day Google However somewhere in between she described the Gogol as someone like this as far as I remember an eccentric genius an intelligent ueer and sickly creature a hypochondriac and a deeply paranoid morbidly melancholic one among Russian literary greats So Jhumpa was decidedly the one who introduced me to the second name from the Russian Literary world many years backGOGOL Since then I wanted to read this fellow I had notified Gogol and his Dead Souls in excitement then It seems a silly association but it is uite true Before turning to Dead souls finally I had already read him three years back in his short tales The Nose and The Overcoat I loved both of themNow coming back to the Book you can instantly see that I was reading this book with very high expectations and enthusiasm Did this book meet my expectationsI ll first say YES And then I ll say NO as well Actually this book had two parts In the first part I loved everything whatsoever was written by Gogol there But in the second part I ll say my excitement just perished in a very unusual way It ended flat from the point of view of the story leaving me disconcerting and a little disappointed as well So this book just fell short of a five star read for meThe storyline is rather simple A clever man is trying to make wealth through trick and hoax He is using the officials Corruption practices among those officeholders made his fraud of buying and selling those dead souls uite convenient Dead souls were those serfs who were dead but they were still shown as living ones in the census there on paper So this guy used all his brain to acuire a huge sum of money through the deed of sale of such dead soulsOur hero the hero of this novel as is defined in the beginning is peripatetic rouge and is very solicitous about his descendants Our hero is a traveler but his travel is of a different sort One day our hero CHICHIKOV enters in a provincial city of N Gogol has constantly used this term our hero everywhere in the narration whenever he had a strong intent to peep out in between the storyline and wanted to talk to the reader directly this our hero of Gogol though acts throughout the book villainously He entered in style on a pretty brichka a type of horse drawn carriage and entered the gate of a hostelry in this cityAnd thus began his journey in this novel Dead soulsEvery chapter of this book brings to the reader a uniue character and an entirely new backdrop from Russian society A scene changes every time a chapter finishes Chichikov either deliberately reaches there or lands up there accidentally And here in every chapter of this novel especially in the first part Gogol has shown the class of his penmanship in framing such humorous circumstances and very sharp observations of Russian people and their behavior And I really liked all the characters created by Gogol in this book The humor content is at its best and the conversations and Gogol s delibrations on various issues of Russia can be seen in a new lightBut wise is the man who disdains no character but with searching glance explores him to the root and cause of allThese FOUR things I noticed throughout the book You will find here DIVERSITY of Russian classes and characters then you will witness the DRAMA among the characters in the satirical language of Gogol the dialogues and narration will fill you with unstoppable jest in that classic Gogolian HUMOR and finally a big time SUSPENSE will linger on every time thereSo Diversity Drama Humor and Suspense are my four takeaways from this novelThis is for sure a great classic book and is uite strange and ueer in its approach and scope both and one must read it if one is interested in peeking into the Russian ways of the 19th century through the eyes and style of Gogol Nabokov had once described Gogol as the strangest prose poet Russia ever produced and I too have felt this strangeness of his craft in this novel
