Reviewer: Andrei Bely, (Russian Literature Triquarterly)

"What a tone, what jealous tyranny--Gogol is putting a sorcerer's spell on Russia. Throughout his life, she is a mysterious image for him, and, nonetheless, his mistress....Inscrutably, unnaturally Gogol, perhaps more than any other Russian writer, is bound to Russia, and he is bound by no means to the Russia of the past, but to today's Russia, and even more to tomorrow's."

Reviewer: Vladimir Nabokov

"The main lyrical note of 'Dead Souls' bursts into existence when the idea of Russia as Gogol saw Russia (a peculiar landscape, a special atmosphere, a symbol, a long, long road) looms in all its strange loveliness through the tremendous dream of the book."
