Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol (1809 –1852) was a Ukrainian-born Russian novelist, humourist, and dramatist. He is considered the father of modern Russian realism, but at the same time, his work is very much in the genre of romanticism. His early works, such as Evenings on a Farm Near Dikanka, were heavily influenced by his Ukrainian upbringing and identity. His more mature writing satirised the corrupt bureaucracy of the Russian Empire, leading to his exile. On his return, he immersed himself in the Orthodox Church. The novels Taras Bulba and Dead Souls, the play The Inspector-General, and the short stories Diary of a Madman, The Nose and The Overcoat are among his best known works. With their scrupulous and scathing realism, ethical criticism as well as philosophical depth, they remain some of the most important works of world literature.
