The fiction and drama of Gogol, now widely read in English, have delighted, puzzled, and inspired Russian critics for nearly a century and a half. 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.

Industry Reviews

"In putting together this extremely useful volume, Robert Maguire has pursued a complex set of aims--to illumilnate Gogol's art in ways that must be a novel for readers who do not know Russian, to represent the principal approaches of Russian twentieth-century criticism, and at the same time to cover all of Gogol's major writings. These aims are brilliantly achieved, and it is not only the nonspecialists who will find te book stimulating ... Maguire's work as a translator and editor is exemplary."--The Russian Review
