    1. Nikolai Gogol Stephen Mulrine

      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

    2. I had read all of Gogol s fiction, except for his plays, which were hard to find Recently, a wonderful edition of The Inspector was published by Theatre Communications Group and translated by none other than Pevear and Volokhonsky I immediately bought and read it as all of Gogol s works, it was wonderful Gogol also wrote two other plays, though Marriage and The Gamblers which I just couldn t find in a properly translated English edition Then I stumbled on this collection, published by Methuen Dr [...]


    3. The Government Inspector is one of my favourite plays of all time.It is satire at its absolute best it shows the problems at every level of society, every occupation and without any worry for what people might think.Set in a small provincial government town who are expecting an inspector to arrive any day, a young man who is silly and broke, travelling back to his parents estate to ask for money.He arrives in the town and is mistaken for the Government Inspector The story unfolds from there, but [...]

    5. This is another of Eric Bentley s many collections of plays For the most part, he produces very accessible versions of plays, and frequently the only good English version of some plays Overall, this set is good The Inspector is a must read Gamblers This is an amusing play about the cheat of cheaters It s not much to read because reading about people playing cards is not that interesting , but in performance I m sure it s very entertaining 07 16 Inspector This volume includes Gogol s famous Inspe [...]


    6. Eric Bentley points out in a preface that Russian has no articles didn t know that did you That matters in the case of Zhenitba, where we don t know whether to call it, in English, A Marriage, The Marriage, or the term for the state of matrimonial whatchamacallit, Marriage Bentley chose to add the to the title there, but for an unexplained reason he opted for no article in dealing with Revizor, Gogol s best known play Here called Inspector, it s usually titled The Government Inspector, less oft [...]


    7. A 3.5 I wish Gogol had written After reading Dead Souls, his Collected Stories, and now these plays, there is not much else left to read I have found his writing very witty and enjoyable He is great at creating funny circumstances that seem like they could happen in real life He is believable in his settings, which I think adds to the humor he pulls off He also captures characters very well, even if they are often a little typecast I am very curious about what Gogol would have written had he ha [...]


    8. Three fine comedies by Gogol during his stint in St Petersburg Gogol had a particular sense to the rhythm and dance that theater could and arguably should always offer His plots are fast paced, witty and chock full of odd and peculiar characters the twin landowners in The Inspector General are great side characters That play is probably the most realized of the trio, with not entirely much in way of narrative to drive it but the consistency of its two main characters drives both the humor and th [...]



    9. The comments apply only to THE GOVERNMENT INSPECTOR, or INSPECTOR, as it is called here, and not the other plays.This is one of the great comedies in world literature, a protracted sitcom that reveals the follies of everyone involved It is a sort of citywide THE MAN WHO CAME TO DINNER, that pays off without sentimentality but big belly laughs The plays is well served in this Eric Bentley translation.



    10. Kitaptaki iki oyun da Gogol un ne kadar usta bir yazar oldu unu bir kez daha kan tl yor K vrak, n ktedan bir kalem, birden fazla alt metin i eren, okuyucuya ders veren olaylar Gogol un uzmanl k alan Mutlaka okunmal.


    11. Some really funny moments inside some pretty typical plays I like his short fiction better, but these were still entertaining.




    12. I never really read plays but The Government Inspector definitely changed my mind , it was hilarious and witty and I loved it.
