English Petersburg Tales Italiano«We all came out of Gogol’s overcoat»Dostoevskij says meaning that all the subseuent literature ie the Socialist Realism that was artistic expression of the proletarian classes was shaped from the hems of the coat stolen to the poor employee Akakij Akakievic Nikolai Gogol set up grotesue situations almost comic which however bring with them a solid melancholy The melancholy of poverty The melancholy of loneliness Poor and decent people wealthy and beige naive and insane All of them are the city PetersburgNevsky Prospekt The Overcoat The Nose The Portrait Memories of a Madman Five great stories a Petersburg snapshot of another timeWhat do you say one day you woke up without your nose??Vote 9«Siamo tutti usciti dal cappotto di Gogol» afferma Dostoevskij intendendo che tutta la letteratura successiva uel Realismo Socialista espressione artistica delle classi proletarie prendeva forma dagli orli del cappotto rubato al povero impiegato Akakij Akakievic Situazioni grottesche uelle messe in piedi da Nikolai Gogol uasi comiche che però si portano dietro una solida malinconia La malinconia della povertà O della solitudine Personaggi poveri e dignitosi personaggi benestanti e grigi personaggi ingenui e folliLa Prospettiva Neminskij Il Cappotto Il Naso Il Ritratto Memorie di un Pazzo Cinue racconti stupendi uno spaccato memorabile della Pietroburgo dell'epocaCosa direste se vi svegliaste un bel giorno privi del vostro naso??Voto 9 All I can say is Gogol is effin hillarious D Really glad someone recommended me these short stories They are an outstanding and full of symbolism bunchAnyone interested in Orthodox Christianity should pick these up as they express an incredible anxiety from Gogol in this regard not only because he was censored due to his portraying of heretic characters but also because later in life he would repent of his literary work as he considered it a danger to that very ChristendomI particularly enjoyed Nos and Portret The former being about a nose running away from its owner's face and acting like a upper class bureaucrat; and the latter is the story of a portrait of an usurer with Asian eyes who corrupts the souls of anyone near it The Portret has a very Poe like aura and it made me remember The Picture of Dorian GrayReally enjoyed these and if you are looking for an accessible entry point to the Russians I cannot think of a better book I read this exuisite author three years ago and without learning much it left me dazzled at the sensibility of a Russian soul writing I read about the writer and I was taken with empathy or pity in front of his evident suffering and that even or beginning with his baby time he was subject to scrofula He was prone from his early childhood and even afterwards to feeling a lack or a shortage of something that led to his feeling of difference or incapacity He was poorly treated on the occasion of his publications short stories There is some lack in him that precipitated his disorders He was different I read The Nievski prospective The Diary of a Madman The Nose The Coupe The Furcoat The portraitthey are the stories of the rejected the laisses pour compte the dejected deeply hurt by some weak spot that grew in them like a bee a bonnet which resounded and magnified on a larger scale Everything starts innocently almost chattily like taking a stroll conversing with a friend and then o lo behold a crash for a pretty eye or a bonnet or a lovely boot that appears and then everything turns out in a furious and devilish chase which becomes frightening disillusion disintoxication and allienation It is a chase of a meeting or chance meeting a brief encounter of imagination and dream finishing in a solitary confinement or cold corpse Nievski Prospective the very first story chatty pleasant funny like its promenade appreciated so much by Gogol's contemporaries for it is like the road to happines which turns out the road to hellNikolai Gogol died in 1852 and Baudelaire's Fleurs du Mal saw the day in 1857 They were the poets or painters of their contemporary societies Both radically differently tempermentaly were taken to grips with inner injustice of their world Gogol in his Slav soul was emotional and dolorous whereas Baudelaire was lucid picturesue surprising hearty presumptuous in his enterprise But borh were disillusioned Somehow in his Gallic manner he travelled in space and poetry leaving us souvenirs grandeur and beauty worth leaving Gogol his temperament was disllusioned in this injustice that it created a rift in him and conseuently in his characters To end I'd like to give you an exemple of a poem of Baudelaire which is set in a street of Paris on a promenade maybe on the Grands boulevards to the difference of emotion and poetics but the poem breathes expectation of the beauty which irrupts in a poetic soul Poetry and life dream nd reality are those eternal themes of romantic and symbolist writing that acuire force and freshness with every coming generation and thus placing the geography of their beloved town into the text of their works A une passanteLa rue assourdissante autour de moi hurlaitLongue mince en grand deuil douleur majestueuseUne femme passa d'une main fastueuseSoulevant balancant le feston et l'l'ourletAgile et noble avec sa jambe de starueMoi je buvais crispe comme un extravagantDans son oeil ciel livide ou germe l'ouraganLa douceur ui fascine et le plaisir ui tueUn eclairpuis la nuit Fugitive beauteont le regard m'a fait soudainement renaitreNe te verrai je plus ue dans l'eternite?Ailleurs bien loin d'ici trop tard jamais peut etreCar j'ignore ou tu fuis tu ne sais ou je vausO toi ue j'eusse aimee o toi ui le savaisThis poem is marked bzy the involontary irruption of unexpecednss so much dear to romantic and fantastic literature that permits going into the unconsious of creativity and sensibility into the soul of being his dreams Gogol explores in the vein of ordinary and mundane which in his imagination become alluring strange and frightening leaving men unarmed with wonder fear oblivionForgive me for this piece of wriring I don't have much talent for writing I am only a teacher in a high school yet in love with literary world A delightful collection of short stories full of misery and depravity It felt amazing that all of the stories had one thing in common Nevsky Prospect was present in each of themNevsky ProspectNevsky prospect is as shown by the title the protagonist of the short story full of deception dreams where nothing is what it seems We follow two characters the artist Piskarev and lieutenant Pirogov as they become entangled in adventures passing by the avenue Both stories revolve around romantic feelings; they catch a glimpse of a beautiful lady and the proceed to win her love With humor caustic comments on writers and journalists along with many stereotypes of nationalities Gogol creates an imaginary story both tragic and humorous at the same timeThe NoseThis is a nonsensical story about a man that loses his nose Extremely far fetched it's a hilarious short story that always makes me giggleThe OvercoatThe overcoat is essentially about an overcoat that Akaky Akakievich buys laboriously the cost of a new overcoat is beyond Akaky's meager salary This overcoat gets stolen and all hell breaks loose This particular story is considered to have had a great influence on Russian literature and is an extremely layered work It can be read as a satire and as a sharp criticism of a petty society that creates and reproduces contracts oppressing its membersDiary of a MadmanWritten in the format of a diary the story centers on the life of Poprishchin a low ranking civil servant and titular counsellor who desires to be noticed by the daughter of the Director his senior official The diary records show his slow descent into insanity It is an exceptionally grotesue story that is definitely worth a read I enjoyed 'Petersburg Tales' it was funny I enjoyed Gogol's insights of the world around him and the comings and goings in Petersburg This is the first time I have read anything by Nikolai Gogol and I enjoyed it Recommended I had no idea what to expect of Gogol these 4 novellas were a pleasant surprise I love the grotesue stories Gogol's humor and his style I just have a weakness for those long complicated constructions in order to express something simple that was so common in other centuries A somewhat uneven collection of sometimes amazing stories The Nose and The Overcoat are both well worth their praise but Nevsky Prospekt was a style of storytelling I haven't come across before It's almost Hitchcockian the way the narrative exists as its own character and stumbles through the street before fixating on one of two friends and then the other Oft repeated advice is to make a setting its own character There is no better teacher than Nevsky Prospekt that I have encountered thus far for that particular lesson Diary of a Madman was so unenthralling that I can't help but give this collection a very subjective 35 Gogol is my introduction to Russian writers who are certainly already imaginative and concerned with the hard life of the peasant class than the 19th century French writers who Sartre in What Is Literature? argued were little than bourgeoisie puppets even when they wrote about the working class 35 rounded up to 4 stars What a delightful surprise you are Nikolai Gogol This didn't even feel like reuired reading for an essay since I enjoyed it so much This collection includes three short stories by Gogol all taking its' place in St Petersburg The stories mix together magical elements black humour and social commentary I have had some struggles with Gogol in the past but with these one I was enchanted and highly humoured We still live in Gogolian times In any city you will find the high end street with the high end shops and the high end condos In any country you will find the artist or scientist or doctor or anybody selling himself for gold and status Anywhere you will find the multi layered perfectly hierarchical bureaucracy or company or society Anywhere you will find beauty disgracing itself to the point of disfigurement And everywhere yes everywhere there will be souls that cannot take it everywhere poor souls falling into despair suicide and madness Chapeau
