Gogol: Plays and Selected Writings

The theatrical genius of Gogol has gone largely unappreciated by English-speaking audiences because literal translations have left his plays virtually impossible to perform. These fresh translations restore the vitality of Gogol's language and humor, allowing his dramatic art to speak to readers, directors, actors, and theater-goers.

"This translation is the best I have read--and there are scores of them including my own." --E.J. Czerwinski, Comparative Drama
