So, as you see, there’s great things about Dead Souls: Dicen que en los manuscritos de Shakespeare no se advierten tachaduras.

There were some interesting insights into the Russian people, the way Gogol describes them is simultaneously universal and specific, and despite it being heavily satirical, there’s a constant and persistent sense of pathos and empathy towards the Russian people and towards Gogol’s moortas characters, which is a beautiful balance to accomplish.
