Dostoevsky and Gogol: More on the Theory of Parody. Vij and Krotkaia--the Same Beauty in the Coffin.

Olga Meerson. "Dostoevsky and Gogol: More on the Theory of Parody. Vij and Krotkaia--the Same Beauty in the Coffin.." Sub specie tolerantiae: In Memoriam Vladimir Artemovich Tunimanov. Ed. Anna Grodetskaia. St. Petersburg: Nauka: Institute of Russian Literature, Pushkinskij Dom, Russian Academy of Sciences, 2008.

"Not Dead Souls--but Poor Folk!"--as Andrey Siniavsky, a.k.a. Abram Tertz has defined the ongoing argument between Gogol and Dostoevsky on the subject of human nature. The article explores Dostoevsky's intertextual appropriation of a gogolian character--a witch!-- transforming her into a "Gentle Creature" / a meek woman--translated more precisely--in order to argue with Gogol, on gogol's own "turf", about the nature of human beings in general and women in particular.
