    1. "Το πιο διασκεδαστικό για μένα ήταν όταν έβαλα μπρος μου έγγραφα να υπογράψω. Οι κύριοι νόμιζαν ότι θα βάλω στην άκρη του χαρτιού "γραφεύς τάδε". Αμ! Δε σφάξανε! Στο κύριο μέρος του εγγράφου που βάζει τη τζίφρα του ο διευθυντής τράβηξα ένα "Φερδινάνδος ο Α'". Άξιζε να βλέπει καν [...]

    3. A deluge of thoughts came down on him. Thoughts without sense of purpose or direction that caused a little stir and numerous inquisitive looks.Conversations with a dog. Delusions of grandeur; persecutions that might have never existed. Envy that mumbles incoherent things, day in day out: silence is a privilege reserved for others, an idyllic state he has been forbidden from finding again; illegible theory in a dusty old notebook. Words accumulate in the corners of a dim lighted room where guilty [...]

    4. El sólo hecho de que un ruso de Petersburgo quiera ser el Rey de España, demuestra la maestría con la que Gogol dominaba el absurdo para aplicarlo a un cuento. Con La Nariz, llega a su plenitud. ¡Admiro mucho a Nikolai!

    6. Gogol's anti-heroThe Madman tries to make sense of the world with one eye. Maybe the lesser seen the better. THE more I read Russian authors, the more I seem to be enamoured by them. I read Nikolai Vesilievich Gogol's "The Overcoat" last year and loved it. Today I read "Diary of a Madman" and loved it as much. Here I should also mention that Gogol was a Russian-language writer of Ukrainian origin.Geoffrey Rush on stage as the anti-hero Madman. Is it really a madman who is writing his diary or is [...]

    7. O αγαπημένος και ιδιοφυής Γκόγκολ μας παρουσιάζει τις εμμονές, το λογικό και το παράλογο ως όψεις του ίδιου νομίσματος. Ως θέμα οπτικής. Και οι δύο ήρωες του βαδίζουν όπως επιθυμούν σε αυτόν τον κόσμο ζώντας όμως με το άγχος, χωρίς φιλοδοξίες, γεμάτοι φόβο και αναλώνουν την ζ [...]

    8. When you look back to the Golden Era of Russian Literature, Nikolai Gogol is like the odd man out. You have the romanticism of Pushkin, the philosophical depth found in Dostoyevsky, complex examinations of Russian society in Tolstoy, the realist style of Turgenev and then you have the satirical and farcical works of Gogol. It’s funny because Gogol’s stories fit ever so comfortably amongst the twentieth century Russian literature, where satirical stories were rampant due to Soviet censors. It [...]

    9. 4,5*Μόνο ένας συγγραφέας σαν τον Γκογκόλ θα μπορούσε να συνδυάσει χιούμορ, σάτιρα, θλίψη και ένα τραγικό τέλος αντάξιο του αρχαίου Ελληνικού δράματος Κι όλα αυτά μόνο σε 62 σελίδες!!Η σταδιακή τρέλα του βασικού χαρακτήρα μέσα από τις σελίδες του ημερολογίου του.

    10. Δευτέρα βράδυ στο μαγαζί, πρέπει να περιμένεις δύο ώρες μέχρι να κλείσεις και δεν έχει καθόλου κόσμο. Τι καλύτερη ιδέα από το να διαβάσεις ένα μικρό βιβλίο που -ντροπή σου- δεν είχες διαβάσει ποτέ μέχρι τώρα; Το Ημερολόγιο ενός Τρελού είναι μια ιστορία μέχρι και χθες το βράδυ [...]

    11. Mental illness is no laughing matter, but Gogol's use of humor is intentional in this well known short story, and it's hard ñot to chuckle at his story about the dog's conversation. For a more serious depiction of someones decent in to mental illness I recommend The Yellow Wallpaper and Other Stories by Charlotte Perkins Gilman.

    12. The Diary of a MadmanLike the title suggests, it's the diary of a man who steadily succumbs to madness (schizophrenia?). Anyone, of any age, time, status, can find themselves relating to the hero and that's what makes it a bit frightening. A unique combination with its humorous style.

    14. O Diário de um Louco é um pequeno conto triste e melancólico. Apesar das situações caricatas que podem arrancar algumas gargalhadas, é esse humor que serve de veículo à crítica social e desmascara preconceitos. Adaptado ao teatro inúmeras vezes – inclusive em Portugal -, trata-se do monólogo de um simples funcionário público, vitima da arrogância e do desprezo dos superiores hierárquicos e, principalmente, da filha do seu chefe, por quem nutre uma paixão não correspondida. É [...]

    15. While I liked Gogol's writing, I couldn't grasp hold of the absurdist aspects of the stories. They irritated me, which is not really what I was looking for in my reading experience. I definitely prefer 19th century French realism over Russian, from my experience so far. So . . . interesting, probably worthwhile just to have read them, but would not rec, would not read again.

    16. از هشت داستان، شش داستان خواندم و متاسفانه فرصت نميشود دو داستان پاياني را بخوانم اما همين قدر از اين شش داستان بگويم كه عالي بودند. يعني اگر همه ي نويسنده هاي داستان هاي كوتاه، همينقدر عالي باشند من يكي كه قيد رمان را كلا مي زنم و فقط و فقط داستان كوتاه مي خوانم. اما مي دانم كه [...]

    17. This is the second Gogol that I read and it's so so so much fun to live in his world.If The Overcoat had the poise and permanence of a man who understands the tribulations of his fellow human being, in this one Gogol sits in the mind of a madman to make us understand the thinking process of the person behind the facade. The story is the journey of a man from the normal state of search of his place in this world to the extreme of delusion and confusion leading to madness.The craving to be wanted [...]

The revelation came to me like a flash of lightning.”For a madman the world is what is in his head… And Nikolai Gogol puts into the head of his madman many ridiculous things that will delight any reader.“But men are unfair, with this way of reckoning in weeks. The Jews invented it because it’s their Rabbi’s washing time… And all those fathers, hol [...]

    26. Gogol okumaya öyküleriyle başlamak iyi bir karardı sanırım. Müthiş detaycı anlatımı ve öykülerin içine yazar kimliğiyle girip minik açıklamalar yapması güzeldi. Ayrıca Rus Edebiyatında ilk kez böyle uçuk kaçık öyküler okudum. Kahramanlar da olaylar da ilginçti. Özellikle ''burun'' sık sık öykülerde kullandığı bir organdı. Ya üşüyor, ya kayboluyor, ya da büyüklüğü küçüklüğü ile kişinin önem derecesini belirliyordu. Belki de ruslar burunlarına [...]
