Gogol’s great Russian classic is the Pickwick Papers of Russian Literature. It takes a sharp but
humorous look at life in all its strata, but especially the devious complexities in Russia with its
landowners and serfs. We are introduced to Chichikov, a businessman who, in order to trick
the tax authorities, buys up dead ‘souls’ or serfs whose names still appear on the government
census. Despite being a dealer in phantom crimes and paper ghosts, he is the most beguiling
of Gogol’s characters. Gogol’s obsession with attempting to display ‘the untold riches of the
Russian soul’ eventually led him to madness, religious mania and death. Dismissed by him as
merely ‘a pale introduction to the great epic poem which is taking shape in my mind’, Dead
Souls is the culmination of Gogol’s genius.
