Welcome to the Library Resource Guide for GOGOL : A JOURNEY INTO THE FANTASTIC
RUSS 0320B - S01 (Slavic)
Gogol's altered states of reality uniquely shape the rise of modern Russian literature and anticipate the fictional worlds of Kafka and Borges. Gogol unfolds a grotesque gallery of characters with radish-shaped heads and ghosts with moustaches, who live in a world, in which dogs can talk and noses can walk. Dostoevsky was among the first to relish the labyrinths of Gogol's fantasy scapes; we will follow in Dostoevsky's footsteps.
