Title: Sobranie Sochinenii
Author: Nikolai Gogol - Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol was a Ukrainian-born Russian dramatist, novelist and short story writer.

Considered by his contemporaries one of the preeminent figures of the natural school of Russian literary realism, later critics have found in Gogol's work a fundamentally romantic sensibility, with strains of Surrealism and the grotesque ("The Nose", "Viy", "The Overcoat," "Nevsky Prospekt"). His early works, such as "Evenings on a Farm" "Near Dikanka," were influenced by his Ukrainian upbringing, Ukrainian culture and folklore. His later writing satirized political corruption in the Russian Empire ("The Government Inspector," "Dead Souls"), leading to his eventual exile. The novel "Taras Bulba" (1835) and the play "Marriage" (1842), along with the short stories "Diary of a Madman," "The Tale of How Ivan Ivanovich Quarreled with Ivan Nikiforovich," "The Portrait" and "The Carriage," round out the tally of his best-known works.
