In the Timeless Classics series, Charles River Editors is republishing civilization’s greatest literary works and bringing them to a new generation via ebooks. Timeless Classics offers a wide range of history’s greatest writing, including the acclaimed fictional stories of Jonathan Swift and Washington Irving, the political treatises of Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Karl Marx, the epic poetry of Homer, and more.

Nikolai Gogol was talented enough to catch the notice of not just his contemporaries but his government. Considered one of Russia’s greatest writers during his day, Gogol’s The Overcoat is considered one of Gogol’s most famous works, a bizarre short story that involves Surrealism and supernatural occurrences. Considered one of Gogol’s classics, Dostoyevsky himself noted, "We all come out from Gogol's 'Overcoat'."

This edition of The Overcoat includes a table of contents and is illustrated.

Meet the Author

Novelist, dramatist, and satirist Nikolai Gogol (1809-1852) was a Russian writer of Ukrainian ancestry whose works deeply influenced later Russian literature through powerful depictions of a society dominated by petty bureaucracy and base corruption. Gogol’s best-known short stories — "The Nose" and "The Overcoat" — display strains of Surrealism and the grotesque, while his greatest novel, Dead Souls, is one of the founding books of Russian realism.
