In Gogol'S Shadow
Sobre o livro
Andrei Sinyavsky wrote In Gogol's Shadow in a Soviet labor camp. He challenges the view that Gogol was first and foremost a political writer, revealing a writer more obsessed with language than with politics. This irreverent and incisive analysis of Gogol's life and work is a path-breaking exploration of literary creativity in times of strict censorship and ideological control.
