Since its publication in 1842, Dead Souls has been celebrated as a supremely realistic portrait of provincial Russian life
and as a splendidly exaggerated tale; as a paean to the Russian spirit and as a remorseless satire of imperial Russian
venality, vulgarity, and pomp.

As Gogol’s wily antihero, Chichikov, combs the back country wheeling and dealing for «dead souls»—deceased serfs who still
represent money to anyone sharp enough to trade in them—we are introduced to a Dickensian cast of peasants, landowners,
and conniving petty officials, few of whom can resist the seductive illogic of Chichikov’s proposition.
