Summary

Summary

Diary of a Madman by Nikolai Gogol Translated by Ethel Voynich Narrated by Denis Daly Many of Gogol's stories feature ineffectual individuals who are overwhelmed by the caprices of fate.  In Diary of a Madman, one of his most colourful tales, the narrator, a humble and obscure office worker, veers from mere eccentricity into full blown lunacy, and finds that the delusions fostered by madness are anything but comforting.

Author Bio: Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol

Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol (1809–1852) was a Ukrainian-born Russian writer often called the “father of modern Russian realism” because he was one of the first Russian writers to criticize his country’s way of life. The novels Taras Bul’ba and Dead Souls (1842), the play The Inspector-General (1836, 1842), and the short stories “Diary of a Madman,” “The Nose,” and “The Overcoat” (1842) are among his best-known works. With their scrupulous and scathing realism, ethical criticism, as well as philosophical depth, they remain some of the most important works of world literature.
