Description:
Dead Souls, first published in 1842, is the great prose classic of Russia. That amazing institution, 'the Russian novel', not only began its career with this unfinished masterpiece by Nikolai Vasil'evich Gogol, but practically all the Russian masterpieces that have come since have grown out of it, like the limbs of a single tree.
