About this audiobook

Nikolai Gogol stellt mit großer Kunst den allmählichen Zusammenbruch eines Menschen dar, der unfähig ist, sich seiner Umwelt zu widersetzen. Er erzählt von dem kleinen Beamten Poprischtschin, der nur wenig verdient, von der Angebeteten überhaupt nicht wahrgenommen und von seinen Vorgesetzten kaum beachtet wird. Als er in der Zeitung liest, daß in Spanien der Königsthron leerstehe, kommt er zum Schluß, er selber sei der gesuchte König. Es dauert nicht lange, dann bringt man ihn ins Irrenhaus, wo er mit den medizinischen Mitteln seiner Zeit „behandelt“ wird. Mit geradezu medizinischer Genauigkeit und psychologisch äußerst sensibel schildert Gogol den beklemmenden Wirklichkeitsverlust.
In “Aufzeichnungen eines Irren” (Diary of a Madman) Nikolai Gogol skillfully depicts the breakdown of a human who is incapable of resisting his environment. The short story revolves around the low-ranking civil servant Poprishchin who earns a low wage and is completely ignored, or worse, belittled by his love interest, and his superiors. When he reads in a newspaper that the royal throne of Spain is currently vacant, he concludes that he must be the new heir. It is not long before he is arrested and imprisoned in an insane asylum, where he is ‘treated’ with the therapy methods of his time.

Nikolai Gogol

Nikolai Gogol was a Russian novelist and playwright born in what is now considered part of the modern Ukraine. By the time he was 15, Gogol worked as an amateur writer for both Russian and Ukrainian scripts, and then turned his attention and talent to prose. His short-story collections were immediately successful and his first novel, The Government Inspector, was well-received. Gogol went on to publish numerous acclaimed works, including Dead Souls, The Portrait, Marriage, and a revision of Taras Bulba. He died in 1852 while working on the second part of Dead Souls.
