Read full description of the books O Inspetor Geral:

¡Qué más puedo agregar de Nikolái Gógol que ya no haya comentado antes! Padre de las letras rusas junto a su gran amigo Alexandr Pushkin, escritor multifacético y narrador auténticamente original, creador de la novela moderna rusa a partir de su libro Almas Muertas considerado el “Quijote ruso”, fue también pionero en su maestría a la hora de relatar cuentos.
Con sólo recordar El capote, La nariz, Viy, Diario de un loco, el lector sabrá del calibre de escritor que era. Escribió también una pequeña novela histórica acerca de la vida de los cosacos que se llamó Tarás Bulba.
Pero también escribió un obra de teatro maravillosa como es el caso de ésta, El Inspector, debido a la cual tuvo grandes inconvenientes luego de que fuera representada en el teatro por primera vez en 1836.
No era para menos: la forma en la que ridiculiza a los burócratas de la época le valió grandes enemistades, al punto tal de tener que emigrar a Italia, dado que ni sus grandes influencias por parte del Zar pudo apaciguar los ánimos de los políticos y funcionarios.
Es que la excelencia de esta obra es retratar tan mordaz e irónicamente a al burócrata en real sentido de la palabra, dejando entrever todo ese mundillo de corrupción y negociados turbios que caracterizan al político tanto de pequeños pueblos como de las más altas esferas, y para variar, poniendo al martirizado pueblo en contra, que ponen el grito en el cielo producto de la opresión del poder contra ellos es realmente sorprendente.
Los personajes que más destacan en esta obra son el supuesto inspector, Iván Aleksándrovich Jléstakov, un astuto bribón de veintitrés años, adicto a los naipes quien se hospeda en una pensión sin un rublo luego de haberlo perdido todo en una mala noche de naipes.
Junto a su criado Ósip se encontrará con esta situación impensada, la de que el Alcalde del pueblo, el inescrupuloso y temperamental Antón Antonóvich Skvóznik Dmujáknovsky, quien ante una mala información de dos ineficaces hacendados, cree que Jléstavok es un temible Inspector enviado por San Petersburgo para investigar el estado de todas las instituciones en el pueblo.
Obviamente, Jléstakov, acuciado por las deudas y varado en el medio de la nada se aprovecha de esta confusión para divertirse con los pobres funcionarios, enamorar tanto a la esposa y la hija del Alcalde y aprovechar para pedir dinero a diestra y siniestra.
Realmente es una comedia muy divertida, llena de escenas hilarantes y poblada de toda la ironía y la crítica despiadada a la corrupción como sólo Gógol podía hacerlo.
Muchos saben que es Fiódor Dostoievski a quien más admiro en la literatura rusa, pero el Maestro supo decir alguna vez "Todos descendemos del Capote de Gógol" y es verdad.
Sin Gógol ni Pushkin otra hubiera sido la historia de la literatura para Rusia y el mundo.

Read information about the author

Ebook O Inspetor Geral read Online! Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol (Николай Васильевич Гоголь) was born in the Ukrainian Cossack village of Sorochyntsi, in Poltava Governorate of the Russian Empire, present-day Ukraine. His mother was a descendant of Polish nobility. His father Vasily Gogol-Yanovsky, a descendant of Ukrainian Cossacks, belonged to the petty gentry, wrote poetry in Russian and Ukrainian, and was an amateur Ukrainian-language playwright who died when Gogol was 15 years old.

In 1820 Gogol went to a school of higher art in Nizhyn and remained there until 1828. It was there that he began writing. Very early he developed a dark and secretive disposition, marked by a painful self-consciousness and boundless ambition. Equally early he developed an extraordinary talent for mimicry which later on made him a matchless reader of his own works.

In 1828, on leaving school, Gogol came to Petersburg. He had hoped for literary fame and brought with him a Romantic poem of German idyllic life – Ganz Küchelgarten. He had it published, at his own expense, under the name of "V. Alov." The magazines he sent it to almost universally derided it. He bought all the copies and destroyed them, swearing never to write poetry again.

Gogol was one of the first masters of the short story, alongside Alexander Pushkin, Prosper Mérimée, E. T. A. Hoffmann, and Nathaniel Hawthorne. He was in touch with the "literary aristocracy", and was taken up by Vasily Zhukovsky and Pyotr Pletnyov, and (in 1831) was introduced to Pushkin.

In 1831, he brought out the first volume of his Ukrainian stories (Evenings on a Farm Near Dikanka), which met with immediate success. He followed it in 1832 with a second volume, and in 1835 by two volumes of stories entitled Mirgorod, as well as by two volumes of miscellaneous prose entitled Arabesques. At this time, Gogol developed a passion for Ukrainian history and tried to obtain an appointment to the history department at Kiev University. His fictional story Taras Bulba, based on the history of Ukrainian cossacks, was the result of this phase in his interests.

Between 1832 and 1836 Gogol worked with great energy, though almost all his work has in one way or another its sources in his four years of contact with Pushkin. Only after the presentation, on 19 April 1836, of his comedy The Government Inspector (Revizor) that he finally came to believe in his literary vocation.

From 1836 to 1848 he lived abroad, travelling throughout Germany and Switzerland, as well as spending the winter of 1836–1837 in Paris.

Pushkin's death produced a strong impression on Gogol. His principal work during years following Pushkin's death was the satirical epic Dead Souls. Concurrently, he worked at other tasks – recast Taras Bulba and The Portrait, completed his second comedy, Marriage (Zhenitba), wrote the fragment Rome and his most famous short story, The Overcoat.

After the triumph of Dead Souls, Gogol came to be regarded as a great satirist who lampooned the unseemly sides of Imperial Russia. However, Dead Souls was but the first part of a counterpart to The Divine Comedy. The first part represented the Inferno; the second part was to depict the gradual purification and transformation of the rogue Chichikov under the influence of virtuous publicans and governors – Purgatory.

His last years were spent in restless movement throughout the country. He intensified his relationship with a church elder, Matvey Konstantinovsky. He seems to have strengthened in Gogol the fear of perdition by insisting on the sinfulness of all his imaginative work. His health was undermined by exaggerated ascetic practices and he fell into a state of deep depression. On the night of 24 February 1852, he burned some of his manuscripts, which contained most of the second part of Dead Souls. He explained this as a mistake, a practical joke played on him by the Devil. Soon thereafter he
