The Unful fi lled Desire of the Little Man: Mikhail Zoshchenko’s “The Goat” and the Question of the Gogolian Tradition

P. V. Lysakov
Price: 50 руб.
 The article discusses Mikhail Zoshchenko’s story “The Goat” in connection with the theme of the little man and the tradition of Nikolai Gogol’s Petersburg Tales, in particular, “The Overcoat”. The use of Gogolian motifs and devices is traced and the conclusion is made that while Zoshchenko is aware of Gogol’s legacy, he utilizes it to his own ends and in many ways develops the technique of his “teacher”.
Keywords: Zoshchenko, Gogol, Petersburg Tales, the little man, desire.
