Synopsis:
This volume brings together Gogol's Petersburg Tales with his two most famous plays, all of which guide us through the streets of St. Petersburg, the city erected by force and ingenuity on the marshes of the Neva estuary. Something of the deception and violence of the city's creation seems to lurk beneath its harmonious facade, however, and it confounds its inhabitants with false dreams and absurd visions. This new translation by Christopher English brings out the unique vitality and humor of Russia's finest comic writer.

About the Series: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the broadest spectrum of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, voluminous notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

In these tales Gogol guides us through the elegant streets of St Petersburg, the city erected by force and ingenuity on the marshes of the Neva estuary. Something of the deception and violence of the city s creation seems to lurk beneath its harmonious facade, however, and it confounds its inhabitants with false dreams and absurd visions - nothing is what it seems! warns Gogol. St Petersburg is also the setting for Marriage, Gogol s satire on courtship and cowardice. Finally, for The Government Inspector, indisputably Russia s greatest comedy, we move to the provinces although even here St Petersburg s preoccupation with status and appearances makes its presence felt.
