This book includes two novels as follows: ""Dead Souls"": A stranger arrives in a Russian backwater community with a bizarre proposition for the local landowners: cash for their ""dead souls,"" the serfs who have died in their service and for whom they must continue to pay taxes until the next census. The landowner receives a payment and a relief of his tax burden, and the stranger receives what? Gogol's comic masterpiece offers a vast and satirical painting of the Russian panorama as it traces the path and encounters of its mysterious protagonist in pursuit of his dubious scheme. Dead Souls, regarded as both a realistic portrait of 19th-century Russia and a work of great symbolism, continues to inspire 21st century authors and readers. ""The Inspector General"": When rumors of a visit from a high-ranking bureaucrat reach a small town, the chief of police scrambles to conceal the evidence of bribery and other misdeeds. Considered the high point of Gogol's stagecraft and a masterpiece of dramatic satire, this play lampoons the stupidity and greed of provincial Russian officials.
