Мертвые души Free download Ï PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Innehmer durch die Provinz um den Gutsbesitzern verstorbene Leibeigene abzukaufen weil diese in der Steuerbürokratie noch als Lebende gelten und ihm als fiktives Pfandobjekt bei Kreditinstituten Gewinn bringen sollen Doch dabei werde. 20 stars As much as I hate to say this about a book that is both a classic of Russian literature and considered one of the best satires ever written THIS BOOK BORED ME TO DEATH Okay not uite coffin ready dead but certainly bored to the point of suffering intermittent bouts of narcolepsy I can certainly say without hyperbole that this is not a book I would recommend as an enjoyable experience no matter how much Vodka you have standing byMy assessment of the book arises DESPITE the fact that the novel is very well written and gives an excellent description of old Russia cold dreary and depressing but otherwise a great place to visit The historical detail is both precise and very broad as Gogol includes in the narrative detailed discussions of many aspects of Russian life from the economy to social life to politics to the very uniue mindset of the Russian people Thus as a historical overview of a not very well known period of Russian history the novel is very good In addition the basic plot itself or at least the idea of the plot was very interesting The dead souls of the title refers to the measuring unit ie souls used by the Russian census takers to count the numbers of serfs that landowners owned Serfs while not exactly the same as slaves are similar enough for purposes of this review as they were considered property and had very few rights The taxes that Russian landowners paid during this time were based on the number of serfs they owned Anyway the main character of the novel Pavel Ivanovitch Chichikov devises a plan to purchase from various landowners those serfs who have died since the last census but are still listed as alive for purposes of the taxes paid at least until the next census which is only done every 5 to 10 years Why he wants to do this I will not spoil but it is very clever and I thought an excellent basis for a good story So we have a book that is very well written full of superb historical detail and an original and potentially interesting plot So what was the problem Well first offNO VODKA No in all seriousness I found the book to be simply way too dull and plodding The satirical elements were UNDERWHELMING and that is being kind and the story was just incredibly slow to unfold I kept trying to give this the benefit of the doubt it is a classic after all but it was just determined to remian not very interesting or enjoyable The various characters Chichikov encounters were intended to portray various types of Russians and I guess I was not familiar enough with the period to understand the nuances and thus the intended caricature that Gogal was trying to highlight Therefore the various encounters just sort of bled into one another and left me anxious for the end In sum this was a book that I could appreciate on many levels the uality of the writing the historical detail the cleverness of the plot and there were certainly moments of the story that I truly liked However at the end of the day from the standpoint of my enjoyment of the novel as literature I can not rate it higher than two stars

Мертвые души Free download Ï PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free N die adeligen Verkäufer als die eigentlich seelisch und moralisch Toten entlarvt Nikolaj Gogol 1809 1852 der russische Sprachvirtuose zwischen Romantik und Realismus und Vorbild Dostojewskijs gilt als Meister der Groteske und Satire. The longer and carefully we look at a funny story the sadder it becomes Nikolai GogolBefore saying anything else I think I must begin with my association with this novel It was that period of my age years and years ago when I had read only a few books most of them incomplete yet I used to impress my friends with that precocious intelligence I gathered from those books devoured by me in such scanty doses And what about my knowledge of Russian literature then That was extraordinarily abundant even at that time Was that a joke Indeed it wasIf you had asked me to name any two authors of Russia then I would have said the first name in a very confident tone Tolstoy and second name after a pause of a few seconds I could have uttered aforementioned in full with little dignity The Leo Tolstoy Yes That is true I was not aware of any other name What a pity No I was like an infant still swinging in my cradle of innocent ignorance as long as the book reading was concerned I was a newbie After some time when I started reading contemporary authors I was reading a book by Jhumpa Lahiri There for the first time I encountered this uniue name GOGOLJhumpa had created a fictitious character there in her plot whose name was Gogol I thought then that she might have been inspired by the modern day Google However somewhere in between she described the Gogol as someone like this as far as I remember an eccentric genius an intelligent ueer and sickly creature a hypochondriac and a deeply paranoid morbidly melancholic one among Russian literary greats So Jhumpa was decidedly the one who introduced me to the second name from the Russian Literary world many years backGOGOL Since then I wanted to read this fellow I had notified Gogol and his Dead Souls in excitement then It seems a silly association but it is uite true Before turning to Dead souls finally I had already read him three years back in his short tales The Nose and The Overcoat I loved both of themNow coming back to the Book you can instantly see that I was reading this book with very high expectations and enthusiasm Did this book meet my expectationsI ll first say YES And then I ll say NO as well Actually this book had two parts In the first part I loved everything whatsoever was written by Gogol there But in the second part I ll say my excitement just perished in a very unusual way It ended flat from the point of view of the story leaving me disconcerting and a little disappointed as well So this book just fell short of a five star read for meThe storyline is rather simple A clever man is trying to make wealth through trick and hoax He is using the officials Corruption practices among those officeholders made his fraud of buying and selling those dead souls uite convenient Dead souls were those serfs who were dead but they were still shown as living ones in the census there on paper So this guy used all his brain to acuire a huge sum of money through the deed of sale of such dead soulsOur hero the hero of this novel as is defined in the beginning is peripatetic rouge and is very solicitous about his descendants Our hero is a traveler but his travel is of a different sort One day our hero CHICHIKOV enters in a provincial city of N Gogol has constantly used this term our hero everywhere in the narration whenever he had a strong intent to peep out in between the storyline and wanted to talk to the reader directly this our hero of Gogol though acts throughout the book villainously He entered in style on a pretty brichka a type of horse drawn carriage and entered the gate of a hostelry in this cityAnd thus began his journey in this novel Dead soulsEvery chapter of this book brings to the reader a uniue character and an entirely new backdrop from Russian society A scene changes every time a chapter finishes Chichikov either deliberately reaches there or lands up there accidentally And here in every chapter of this novel especially in the first part Gogol has shown the class of his penmanship in framing such humorous circumstances and very sharp observations of Russian people and their behavior And I really liked all the characters created by Gogol in this book The humor content is at its best and the conversations and Gogol s delibrations on various issues of Russia can be seen in a new lightBut wise is the man who disdains no character but with searching glance explores him to the root and cause of allThese FOUR things I noticed throughout the book You will find here DIVERSITY of Russian classes and characters then you will witness the DRAMA among the characters in the satirical language of Gogol the dialogues and narration will fill you with unstoppable jest in that classic Gogolian HUMOR and finally a big time SUSPENSE will linger on every time thereSo Diversity Drama Humor and Suspense are my four takeaways from this novelThis is for sure a great classic book and is uite strange and ueer in its approach and scope both and one must read it if one is interested in peeking into the Russian ways of the 19th century through the eyes and style of Gogol Nabokov had once described Gogol as the strangest prose poet Russia ever produced and I too have felt this strangeness of his craft in this novel
