Dead Souls

Dead Souls (Everyman's Library)

Author :  N Gogol

Gogol hoped to show the world “the untold riches of the Russian soul” in this 1842 novel, which he populated with a Dickensian swarm of characters: rogues and scoundrels, landowners and serfs, conniving petty officials–all of them both utterly lifelike and alarmingly larger than life. Setting everything in motion is the wily antihero, Chichikov, the trafficker in “dead souls”–deceased serfs who still represent profit to those clever enough to trade in them.

This lively, idiomatic English version by the award-winning translators Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky makes accessible the full extent of the novel’s lyricism, sulphurous humor, and delight in human oddity and error.

Customer Reviews

  • This is the first book that I read from Gogol. it is funny and entertaining, the author is like a painter who paints some stereotypes of the Russian society and you could smoothly glide through the book without stopping. Unfortunately, the author didn't complete the second part of this book but you will still find it interesting.
