Here’s what I’ll be reading this month:
The Collected Stories of Nikolai Gogol: I’m recently so interested in Ukrainian literature and thought to read some authors I haven’t read before. Nikolai Gogol was actually born in Ukraine, and his Collected Stories are split in two parts: The Ukrainian Tales and The Petersburg Tales. He’s widely considered just a Russian author but his roots are in Ukraine.
Dead Souls, Nikolai Gogol: Dead Souls is also on my list. Gogol’s comic, satirical novel about a nobleman who buys dead serfs’ names to mortgage them and thus become a rich, powerful man in society.
The Brothers Karamazov, Fyodor Dostoyevsky: And then I’ll finally get to Dostoyevsky, and have chosen The Brothers Karamazov as my first.
Have you guys read these? Are you reading anything special right now?
