Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A stranger arrives in a Russian backwater community with a bizarre proposition for the local landowners: cash for their "dead souls," the serfs who have died in their service and for whom they must continue to pay taxes until the next census. The landowner receives a payment and a relief of his tax burden, and the stranger receives — what? Gogol's comic masterpiece offers a vast and satirical painting of the Russian panorama as it traces the path and encounters of its mysterious protagonist in pursuit of his dubious scheme. Dead Souls, regarded as both a realistic portrait of 19th-century Russia and a work of great symbolism, continues to inspire 21st century authors and readers.

Synopsis:

A mysterious swindler buys and sells "dead souls" — deceased serfs who, according to government records, are still alive. Rich with ironic twists and comic characters, this book, among the greatest nineteenth-century Russian novels, is required reading for many literature students.
