Dead Souls, Volume 2
Mundus Publishing, 1937 - 392 pagina's
This Norton Critical Edition reprints the text of the acclaimed George Reavey translation, which has been fully annotated for undergraduate readers. "Backgrounds" contains not only Gogol s correspondence relevant to the novel but also the four formal letters that set forth his views on the work. The editor has also included a useful chronology of Gogol s life and an invaluable table of ranks in czarist Russia. A wide range of criticism includes Robert Maguire s general overview of Gogol s criticism; two nineteenth-century Russian appraisals; Donald Fanger s brilliant essay; and a broad spectrum of twentieth-century Russian critical opinion. It features, as well, essays by Vladimir Nabokov and Edmund Wilson. The Russian essays have been translated specially for this Norton Critical Edition. A Selected Bibliography directs readers to resources for further study."
