    Story
    (34)

    Chichikov, a mysterious stranger, arrives in a provincial town and visits a succession of landowners to make each a strange offer. He proposes to buy the names of dead serfs still registered on the census, saving their owners from paying tax on them, and to use these "souls" as collateral to reinvent himself as a gentleman. In this ebullient masterpiece, Nikolai Gogol created a grotesque gallery of human types.

    Darwin8u says: "Captures absurdity of mid 19th century Russia"
    "Excellent!"
    Overall

    A good reading of a great book. One of the classics and a must for those who wan't to understand russian literature of the following era.
