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.

I really enjoyed these unusual, entertaining and surreal stories. Brilliant writer with an even more brilliant imagination. I particularly liked the Overcoat. Recommended to anyone who likes the bizarre!
