In this anthology, Robert A. Maguire offers to English-speaking readers a selection of the impressive critical achievement that the writings of Gogol have stimulated. Each of the eleven essays is at once a fresh contribution to the study of Gogol and an example of one major school of criticism cultivated in contemporary Russia. Professor Maguires introductory survey provides an overview of Gogol criticism from its nineteenth-century background to its current directions. The essays that follow touch on all of Gogols major works, notably Dead Souls, The Inspector General, Evenings on a Farm Near Dikanka, The Nose, and The Overcoat.
