41147 Alright, here are my choices:

- Reading plays in-between the Long Fiction reading.

- Poetry: as you like, I'm not much interested in it

- Play: OK for 'The Seagull' or anything else by Chekhov.

Thank you !

41147 Yes to Play/Drama
41147 I'm curious about this one: what do you think?

41147 Just to say you guys made me see a lot of things in a new light, and I'm thankful for that.
I'm more and more convinced Gogol is laughing at everybody, even at us. Now i see why I felt somewhat annoyed at times :)

I think Gogol laughs at anything he portraits on the whole. Included poor Akaky, perhaps for leading such a pointless life...but had he got a choice?

41147 Very interesting interpretations, all of yours.
I'm with Amalie wondering about the last ghost. Tho I enjoyed a lot Akaky's one, a little revenge lightens up the reader's heart after having suffered so much with the protagonist, right?

Btw, what do you think about the style? I had already read the story long ago, and I didn't remember it being so 'wordy'. I don't like such clusters of clauses that much, honestly, I'd have skipped some of them if I hadn't already known the ending. My bad, perhaps.

41147 I read 'The Overcoat' very long ago, but found it again: I'll be glad to join.
41147 I've already read 'Crime and Punishment' so I could vote for it to avoid the trouble of reading but it wouldn't be fair LoL
It's a very good book anyway.

Seriously, Master and Margarita intrigues me too, so I'm in for it.
