accrued listed below are Gogol's best stories - from the demon-haunted 'St John's Eve' to the unusual surrealism of 'The Nose', from the heart-rending trials of the copyist in 'The Overcoat' to these of the delusional clerk in 'The Diary of a Madman' - permitting readers to event anew the unmistakable genius of a author who cleared the path for Dostoevsky and Kafka. To this impressive new translation - the 1st in twenty-five years and destined to develop into the definitive version of Gogol's brief fiction - Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky deliver an analogous readability and constancy to the unique that they dropped at their incredible translation of Dostoevsky's works and to struggle and Peace.
