The Hague:Mouton and Company. 1965. 243pp. Hardcover with dust jacket. A very good clean copy, inside and out, with a very good, slightly soiled, sunfaded and shelfworn dust jacket. * "In this book the compoition of eight of Gogol's short stories is analysed. This work succeeds more than any other in eludicating the finer points of Gogol's technique; the division into chapters, their effective opening and closing motifs, the surprise transitions, the contrasts and parallels, the leit-motifs, the use of symbols, the role of the narrator, etc. In handling these questions, the author frequently arrives at new interpretations, which he contrasts with existing views."...dj
