Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol was a Russian dramatist of Ukrainian origin. His novel “Dead souls” and short stories are considered the foundation of the great tradition of Russian critical realism and Russian satire. Among other notable works are comedies “The Inspector-General”, “Marriage”. Ten days before his death Gogol burned the second volume of his “Dead souls”. He hoped to close the gap between his spiritual and creative inspirations.
