    Nikolai Gogol
    Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol was born in the Ukrainian Cossack village of Sorochyntsi, in Poltava Governorate of the Russian Empire, present day Ukraine His mother was a descendant of Polish nobility His father Vasily Gogol Yanovsky, a descendant of Ukrainian Cossacks, belonged to the petty gentry, wrote poetry in Russian and Ukrainian, and was an amateur Ukrainian language playwright who died when Gogol was 15 years old.In 1820 Gogol went to a school of higher art in Nizhyn and remained there until 1828 It was there that he began writing Very early he developed a dark and secretive disposition, marked by a painful self consciousness and boundless ambition Equally early he developed an extraordinary talent for mimicry which later on made him a matchless reader of his own works.In 1828, on leaving school, Gogol came to Petersburg He had hoped for literary fame and brought with him a Romantic poem of German idyllic life Ganz K chelgarten He had it published, at his own expense, under the name of V Alov The magazines he sent it to almost universally derided it He bought all the copies and destroyed them, swearing never to write poetry again.Gogol was one of the first masters of the short story, alongside Alexander Pushkin, Prosper M rim e, E T A Hoffmann, and Nathaniel Hawthorne He was in touch with the literary aristocracy , and was taken up by Vasily Zhukovsky and Pyotr Pletnyov, and in 1831 was introduced to Pushkin.In 1831, he brought out the first volume of his Ukrainian stories Evenings on a Farm Near Dikanka , which met with immediate success He followed it in 1832 with a second volume, and in 1835 by two volumes of stories entitled Mirgorod, as well as by two volumes of miscellaneous prose entitled Arabesques At this time, Gogol developed a passion for Ukrainian history and tried to obtain an appointment to the history department at Kiev University His fictional story Taras Bulba, based on the history of Ukrainian cossacks, was the result of this phase in his interests Between 1832 and 1836 Gogol worked with great energy, though almost all his work has in one way or another its sources in his four years of contact with Pushkin Only after the presentation, on 19 April 1836, of his comedy The Government Inspector Revizor that he finally came to believe in his literary vocation.From 1836 to 1848 he lived abroad, travelling throughout Germany and Switzerland, as well as spending the winter of 1836 1837 in Paris.Pushkin s death produced a strong impression on Gogol His principal work during years following Pushkin s death was the satirical epic Dead Souls Concurrently, he worked at other tasks recast Taras Bulba and The Portrait, completed his second comedy, Marriage Zhenitba , wrote the fragment Rome and his most famous short story, The Overcoat.After the triumph of Dead Souls, Gogol came to be regarded as a great satirist who lampooned the unseemly sides of Imperial Russia However, Dead Souls was but the first part of a counterpart to The Divine Comedy The first part represented the Inferno the second part was to depict the gradual purification and transformation of the rogue Chichikov under the influence of virtuous publicans and governors Purgatory.His last years were spent in restless movement throughout the country He intensified his relationship with a church elder, Matvey Konstantinovsky He seems to have strengthened in Gogol the fear of perdition by insisting on the sinfulness of all his imaginative work His health was undermined by exaggerated ascetic practices and he fell into a state of deep depression On the night of 24 February 1852, he burned some of his manuscripts, which contained most of the second part of Dead Souls He explained this as a mistake, a practical joke played on him by the Devil Soon thereafter he

    It is a simple tale, on the surface Akaky Akakievich literally Harmless Son of Harmless, but which might sound like Poopy Pooperson to a child , an impoverished civil servant and scrivener, must maintain his respectability by possessing a decent overcoat How he gains a new overcoat, loses that overcoat, and seeks to have the overcoat restored to him constitutes the whole of our story Dostoevsky has been quoted as saying, We all come from under Gogol s Overcoat , and it is true that much of Russi [...]

    In my preparation for reading The Metamorphosis, I did some background reading of critical analyses, including this one by Vladimir Nabokov thanks to Cecily for the link , where he does a fantastic dissection heh of The Metamorphosis but also talks about Gogol s The Carrick aka The Cloak or The Overcoat and tosses off wonderful ideas like this The beauty of Kafka s and Gogol s private nightmares is that their central human characters belong to the same private fantastic world as the inhuman char [...]

    My first contact with Gogol, and certainly not my last This little book tells the story of Akakiy Akakievitch, a certain official in a certain department where nobody showed him any sign of respect He was laughed at by his co workers That must be one of the worst thing that may happen to any human being realizing that high school did not end for a lot of people, it wasn t all flowers and rainbows All the bullying, the bad jokes, the embarrassing moments that make you gently ask the ground to eat [...]

    It s amazing how much depth can be found in such a short story A story which transcends time and concerns every person of the past, present and, the way things are going, future It s kind of funny when you think about it, but it s barely 50 pages and a masterpiece.
