Nikolai Gogol: Associative Perusal Experience

Usually delivers within 2 weeks.


This book does not resemble the classical scholarly writings. It rather grew out of the personal needs of an author to reveal his findings which concern the associative perusal of nice and strange works created by Nikolai Gogol. The protagonist here is not Gogol himself but the beautiful city of Vienna in 1913, where our famous writer, according to some imaginary assumption, "mysteriously met" a lot of prominent people from cultural and political spectrum. Such a fictitious approach is based on the fascinating relationship of Gogol's art to works of different artists of that time, to name a few: Musil, Kassner, Roth, Broch, Klimt as well as scientists: Einstein, Wittgenstein, Freud and others. The relevance of some issues of physics as well as metaphysics to Gogol's life and work is also shown. Through Gogol the intercultural connections of different ideas and thoughts with regard to Shakespeare, Swedenborg, Dee, mysticism, Freemasons, the present and former Ukrainian and Russian history is discussed.
