    ― Nikolai Gogol, quote from Dead Souls “A adormit buștean, cum dorm numai acei fericiți care nu suferă nici de hemoroizi, nici de purici și nici de vreo agerime prea mare a minții.” “Even a stone has its uses, and man who is the most intelligent of all creatures must be of some use, hasn't he?”. He proposes to buy the names of dead serfs still registered on the census, saving their owners from paying tax on them, and to use these “souls” as collateral to reinvent himself as a gentleman. In this ebullient masterpiece, Gogol created a grotesque gallery of human types, from the bear-like Sobakevich to the insubstantial fool Manilov.

    Dead Souls by Nikolai Gogol Dead Souls by Nikolai Gogol, Russian writer, was first published in , and is one of the most prominent works of 19th-century Russian literature. Gogol himself saw it as an "epic poem in prose". Dead Souls (Russian: Мёртвые души) by Nikolai Gogol, Russian writer, was first published in , and is one of the most prominent works of 19th-century Russian literature. Gogol himself saw it as an "epic poem in prose", and within the book as a "novel in verse".

    Thus, Dead Souls is a book about "Russianness" as much as it is a story about Chichikov, an amoral huckster who conceives a scheme to become rich by buying dead souls from credulous, venal landowners. Chichikov is a character, and Gogol's treatment of Russian peasantry and the upper classes alike is sharply satirical. Using Plyushkin’s character Gogol emphasized the different forms of economical, social and spiritual degradation of landowner class (Maguire, , p).As it is known, Nikolai Gogol wanted his Dead Souls poem to become the detailed description of the social system and events, which took place in post-Napoleonic Russia.
