Diary of a Madman Audiobook

Diary of a Madman

Author: Nikolai Gogol Narrator: Denis Daly Release Date: July 2020

Diary of a Madman by Nikolai Gogol Translated by Ethel Voynich Narrated by Denis Daly Many of Gogol's stories feature ineffectual individuals who are overwhelmed by the caprices of fate.  In Diary of a Madman, one of his most colourful tales, the narrator, a humble and obscure office worker, veers from mere eccentricity into full blown lunacy, and finds that the delusions fostered by madness are anything but comforting.

The Nose Audiobook

The Nose

Author: Nikolai Gogol Narrator: Reza Omrani Release Date: June 2020

The Nose is a short story by Nikolai Gogol and was published in 1836. It tells the story of a man (known as Major Kovalyov) who lost his nose in an extraordinarily strange incident. He soon realizes that his nose dressed as a man of high rank and pretending to be a human being: It goes to church and can talk to Kovalyov. He tries to get the nose back on his face in many different ways but the nose refuses to return. Nicholai Gogol uses satire to make fun of society in which high position and rank are appreciated much more than personality. The story takes place in 19th century St. Petersburg which had a strict ranked society. This version of the book is translated by Khashayar Deyhami to Persian (Farsi) and narrated by Reza Omrani. The Persian version of The Nose's audiobook is published by Maktub worldwide.

May Night or the Drowned Maiden (Moonlit Tales of the Macabre - Small Bites Book 4)

Author: Nikolai Gogol Narrator: Fred Wolinsky Release Date: February 2020

This lovely (and nevertheless rather spooky) tale by Nikolai Gogol is rooted in Ukrainian lore. It starts quite ordinary - a young man is in love with a beautiful young girl, but other people and unforeseen circumstances stand in the way of their happiness. Quite unexpectedly, our young hero receives an offer of help from a very unlikely source.

The Diary of a Madman, and Other Russian Sketches Audiobook

The Diary of a Madman, and Other Russian Sketches

Author: Anton Chekhov, Leonid Andreyev, Nikolai Gogol Narrator: Stefan Rudnicki Release Date: December 2019

Centering on the picaresque realism of Nikolai Gogol's (1809-1852) mid-nineteenth-century visions of the extraordinary in everyday life, this collection mines the ambiance and mind of pre-Revolutionary Russia. These seven stories take us from the Miracle Mile of St. Petersburg's Nevsky Prospekt, and a summer night in a Ukrainian village, to the fantastical psychological geographies of fathers, sons, and madmen. Augmenting Gogol's visions are two disturbing tales by the foremost storyteller of Russia's "Silver Age" Leonid Andreyev (1871-1919), and a coda from one of Anton Chekhov's (1860-1904) stable of memorable characters. Contents include: Nevsky Prospekt - Nikolai GogolThe Diary of a Madman - Nikolai Gogol Silence - Leonid AndreyevMay Night or The Drowned Girl - Nikolai Gogol Laughter - Leonid AndreyevThe Portrait - Nikolai Gogol On the Harmfulness of Smoking Tobacco - Anton Chekhov

Diary of a Madman and Other Stories Audiobook

Diary of a Madman and Other Stories

Author: Nikolai Gogol Narrator: Nicholas Boulton Release Date: August 2018

The Diary of a Madman and Other Stories is a bizarre and colorful collection containing the complete Ukrainian and Petersburg stories by the iconic Russian writer Nikolai Gogol. From the witty and Kafkaesque The Nose, where a civil servant wakes up one day to find his nose missing, to the moving and evocative The Overcoat, about a sad and reclusive man whose only ambition is to replace his old, threadbare coat, Gogol gives us a unique and satirical take on the absurd. Gogol's tales of inconsequential civil servants, mixing the everyday with the surreal, foreshadow the work of his later acolytes, Bulgakov and Kafka. None is more cutting than the main story, The Diary of a Madman, where a government clerk descends to insanity, claiming that he can communicate with dogs and that he is next in line to the throne of Spain.
