Had people related the work of Gogol before "The Nose"?

Literature Asked on January 3, 2022

In The Nose, an opera by Demitri Shostakovich, Shostakovich combines many of Nikolai Gogol’s stories, including The Nose, for which the opera is named, into a single story. Had previous critics or writers analyzed the works of Nikolai Gogol as a single story?

One Answer

I am not sure to understand your question. Do you mean reviews from critics or author ? If so, the answer is yes. Gogol was a good friend of Pushkin, who promoted his short stories and encouraged him to write The Dead Souls. Also, Gogol was the protégé of the most influential Russian critic of the 1840’s, Vissarion Belinsky, at least until the publication of The Dead Souls. Gogol was also a major influence for Dostoyevsky, Sologub, Belyi, and more generally for the Silver Age of Russian Literature (1890’s-1920’s). I don’t if I answered your question.
