  1. Thank you for this wonderfully illuminating post. I read and absolutely loved Petersburg a little while back and wondered about reading this one. As I love Gogol too, it seems like a given now…

    Thanks for reading. I’m definitely going to want to read Petersburg now. I dipped into it earlier and I think it is a bit more like the Joyce we know in Ulysses and Portrait, very meta-textual, which may be where all those comparisons come from. I didn’t expect this book to impress me as much as it did.
