    About "Nikolai Gogol"

      • 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


    1. No existe género literario que Nikólai Gógol no haya abordado con maestría. Todo lo hacía bien. Incursionó en la narrativa de la novela, que alcanzó su punto consagratorio con “Almas Muertas”, escribió obras de teatro como su genial obra rebosante de sátira que se llamó “El Inspector”, escribió una novela histórica ambientada en la época de la los cosacos, conocida como “Tarás Bulba” y muy especialmente escribió todo tipo de cuentos, que además tenían las caracterís [...]

    2. Τα λογοτεχνικά παραμύθια είναι το αγαπημένο μου είδος παραμυθιών. Μπορούν να έχουν χίλιες δύο περιγραφές και ανάπτυξη χαρακτήρων, που η προφορική παράδοση (παραδοσιακά, προφορικά παραμύθια) δεν είναι δυνατόν να τα προσφέρει.Χάρη σε αυτές τις περιγραφές, (υπέροχες περιγραφ [...]

    3. O Gogol έγραψε μια εξαιρετική σειρά ιστοριών/παραμυθιών, άλλοτε κωμικές, άλλοτε τρομακτικές, με εμφανίσεις νεκρών, πνιγμένων καλλονών, κακών μάγισσών, αφελών ερωτευμένων κλπ. Αυτό που με εντυπωσίασε περισσότερο είναι τα κοινά λαογραφικά στοιχεία μεταξύ επαρχιακής Ουκρανίας [...]

    4. Avându-şi obârşia în folclorul rusesc, Gogol susţinând chiar că nu a modificat-o cu nimic, ci a transupus-o aşa cum a auzit-o la randur-i, "Vii" este un basm ce are ca tematică percepţia omului asupra lumii când realitatea sa imediată este influenţată de diferiţi factori care inoculează frica. Trecând însă peste această remarcă, ce nu se impune, fiind doar o "aroganţă filosofică", "Vii" rămâne doar o proză superficială în materile de literatură universală. Poate r [...]

    5. Is there something Gogol couldn't write? I'm starting to doubt it. I've read his absurd comedies, I've read into Taras Bulba and now I read the Vij - a horror story. Yes, an actual horror story, and Gogol mastered it perfectly. The story's quite short, so I'll just summarise the plot by saying that a young philosopher travels to a small city where he lives in a guesthouse, however the landlady turns out to be a witch and rides him, on his shoulder, through the night, as if she was possessing him [...]

    6. It is strange how I can read Horror novels or a Thriller and be not impressed at all, and then I decide to re-read this short tale (at day-time) and I find myself being so freaked out that I can't fall asleep. Usually I don't mind the dead very much, or ghost or evil spirits, but the ones from this tale get under my skin every single time. Maybe it is the simple write-style, maybe it is the eerie atmosphere that is established from the very beginning, I honestly don't know, but every time I read [...]

    7. First time I heard The Viy read to me by my granddad when I couldn’t read yet. I read it several times when I was a schoolboy. Last time I read it about seven years ago. “A sudden silence followed; the howling of wolves was heard in the distance, and soon heavy footsteps resounded through the church. Thomas looked up furtively and saw that an ungainly human figure with crooked legs was being led into the church. He was quite covered with black soil, and his hands and feet resembled knotted r [...]

    8. гоголь лютий.усі ж знають, що панночка – сутий монстр (Кто? панночка? – сказал Дорош, уже знакомый прежде нашему философу. – Да она была целая ведьма! Я присягну, что ведьма!; Да притом пускай бы уже панночка в таком виде, как она ее знала, – это бы еще ничего; но вот вещь и обст [...]

    9. Vasilii Gippius wrote that the main theme of Gogol’s works is the “intrusion of demonic forces into human life and human struggle with them.” This struggle is particularly evident in Viy, where it is illustrated through Khoma’s struggling with the witch. This story suggests that it is through fear that demonic forces fulfill their goal of controlling and destroying human life. The witch in Viy is the principal manifestation of demonic forces. Her demonic nature is suggested not only by [...]

    10. Viy is a story written by Nikolai Gogol which is most often classified as horror. I'm not sure I necessarily agree with that classification, although it does feature a bumbling main character who comes to a sticky end at the hands of a bloodsucking witch and a horde of other demonic creatures. Gogol himself styled it as a folk tale re-telling.The titular Viy is a creture of Ukrainian folklore, a demon in the form of an old man with his eyelids and brows reaching down to the ground. If the eyelid [...]

    11. This is a great short story and I would recommend it to anyone.Find it for free, with a few typos, here:ebookselaide/g/gogo

    12. Ωραίες ζωώδεις ιστορίες, με προσιτούς διαβόλους, και μάγισσες της διπλανής πόρτας, όπως η κυρα Βάσω, η κατά Μάλαμα γειτόνισσα, μένω στις Γκογκολικές περιγραφές των Ουκρανικών τοπίων, μαγεία σε καταρρακτώδη γραφή

    13. A classical creepy short story.Wanted to read this classic since I've seen the "Viy" 2015 horror movie (as you can see by the gifs) and I was not disappointed at all. I've read it on my kindle in just one session, liked Gogol's style, the story and the chilling atmosphere: the daughter of a russian colonel, thought being a vampire by villagers, asks before passing that young philosophe Thomas Brutus pray near her coffin for 3 nights they are going to be three real long nights for the poor semina [...]

    14. The story started out in a silly, almost satirical way. It gets even goofier a little further on, but once the main character gets to the village, things get REALLY creepy! The thing ends with some very horrific imagery that actually mirrors those seen in modern horror films like "Ringu". If you are a horror fan, check this one out.

    15. Gran cuento de terror de Nikolai Gogol. Viy esta basado en una leyenda popular y reune misterio y terror a partes iguales. El siniestro personaje de la bruja muerta y las desventuras del muchacho que se enfrenta a ella son escalofriantes.

    16. (Review in Polish below / Recenzja w języku polskim poniżej)I've been reading it in polish, so some things can be different because of translation.As other Gogol's stories I've read, this one I find as absolutely special and it gave me a lot of things to think about. It definitely isn't an easy and undemanding reading - the reader must have a will and engage into it in order to understand. The beginning was very interesting to me - the encounter of the sciences. Theology as the winner, philoso [...]

    17. Bardzo ciekawe opowiadanie. Zaczyna się niewinnie od opisu obyczajów studentów uczelni kijowskiej. Wkrótce zaczynają się wakacje i żacy wyruszają w podróż. Razem z narratorem śledzimy losy trójki z nich. Gubią drogę, w końcu jednak znajdują domostwo zamieszkane przez staruszkę, która początkowo nie chce ich przyjąć, w końcu jednak zgadza się Od tej pory akcja nabiera zawrotnego tempa i zostawię czytelnikom poznanie detali.Humor gogolowski, groteska, folklor ukraiński to [...]

    18. I adore Gogol. He is hands down one of my all time favourite writers - and this is my fave of his stories. A brilliant piece of early gothic/horror tied in with the quirky humour that makes Gogol's writing so addictive. I was stoked to pick up a copy of Viy in its original Russian when I visited Saint Petersburg earlier this year. Now if only I could read Russian! Thankfully his prose translates beautifully and he remains the greatest of the Russian literary greats (big call, but one a believe t [...]

    19. When I started to read this book, I thought that this book is a typical horror and haven`t a deep sense. But after reading a few chapters, understood that it`s not a horror, it`s a satire with kind of Ukraine`s folk. Some epizodes were funny a bit, another were philosophical. So, I recommend this book to everyone, because ,firstly, it has a sense, secondly, it`s Gogol! :)

    20. Український хоррор. Твір відображає психологізм головного героя та кладе читача сам на сам із відьмою.Твір дуже сподобався так як це перша українська книга жахів яку я прочитав.

    21. What the! Seriously, I am feeling like nothing right now. Thumbs up from meFinally a Russian horror classic fiction and guess what, it totally fulfilled my expectations about what kind of horror I want to read. For the long time I was really looking for a good Russian horror fiction and then finally I found it. To be very I didn't think that this short tale could give me a huge surprise. As I already read some Russian literature in near past though they were in romance genre but of course in no [...]

    22. Ex librisZagreb, 2008.Sjajna fantastična priča s tematikom vještica. Priča je prvi put izašla u zbrici "Mirgorod" 1835.Jezik je izvrstan, britak, dinamičan, šaljiv, čista prejebena gogoljština. Jezik je svevremenski, Gogolj u tom pogledu podsjeća na Cervantesa, kada čitate Gogolja ili Cervantesa imate osjećaj da je tekst napisan danas, a ne prije par stotina godina. Jezik je najbolja komponenta ove kratke priče.Radnja prati trojicu đaka koji, u potrazi za hranom i pićem, nailaze n [...]

    23. So I thought Viy maybe was the source for the name of the road, The Vy, in the Grisha trilogy or the inspiration for the wolf like creatures, the vye, in The Tapestry series. After reading this story it's definitely not either of those! A viy is a creature from folklore but not anything like a wolf.Actually this was an unexpected horror story. It was alright starting out, but then got really creepy once the philosopher started reading in the chapel. There is also a movie based on the story. I'll [...]
