It took me a long time to finish this story collection. I enjoyed some of the stories, especially the one that lends its title to the overall book. The story of the madman is hilarious, somewhat along the lines of the John Steinbeck book [b:The Short Reign of Pippin IV|186371|The Short Reign of Pippin IV|John Steinbeck|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1386745675s/186371.jpg|2455975], but funnier. I also enjoyed the cultural snapshot of Cussacks in the Ukraine, as depicted in the longer story "Taras Bulba". I'd already read "The Overcoat" a few times, and while I didn't ever really love that story, it is a decent short story. But, the more I read of Gogol, the more tired and annoyed I got at Gogol's attitudes towards women. Occasionally he'll say something fair and reasonable, like when he talks about the lonely, unrewarding life of the Cossack woman who has the misfortune to be married to Taras Bulba. But after such passages he goes back to his normal state, within which women and sexuality are scary or evil or at best unknown. I feel sorry for classic authors with such gender issues, and Gogol's writing is good even with his limitations, but for modern readers his stories have awfully machoist characters and themes, interesting but not always satisfying.

I love Gogol!

Having read several Russian authors who came after him I understand now where some of their capacity of the wondrous stems from. In fact as, mentioned in the introduction, Dostoyevsky once said: "We have all come from under The Overcoat."

It is this particular story for me which should have lent its name to the title of this collection. Again, in the introduction, the translator Ronald Wilks acknowledges that The Overcoat is probably one of the best short stories ever written. I can only agree.

There is such playfulness in the simplicity of Gogol's style, weaved into beautiful satire and abstraction.

For anyone with even a passing interest in 19th century Russian literature, start here... ( )

The eponymous story in this collection, justly celebrated and turned into a successful stage piece, acts as a wonderful anchor to the book, with its intriguing description of the gradations between normality and lunacy . It is followed by "The nose", also frequently anthologized, which centers around the proto-Kafkaesque premise of a man's search for his runaway nose. After that the stories become pretty average; they concentrate on trenchant criticism of Russian society and bureaucracy of the day, and as such are reminiscent of the stories his contemporaries in France were producing at this time. They are mildly interesting, but rather academic two centuries later, and perhaps rather more to be appreciated than enjoyed. ( )

Gogol's stories are fantastic, very visceral but with hefty doses of the supernatural. This collection contains five of his short works - The Diary of a Madman, The Nose, The Carriage, The Overcoat and Taras Bulba. ( )
