About this title:

Synopsis: This early work by Nikolai Gogol was originally published in the 19th century and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. 'Taras Bulba and Other Tales' is a collection of short stories that include 'St. John's Eve', 'The Cloak', 'How the Two Ivans Quarrelled', 'The Mysterious Portrait', 'Calash', and 'Taras Bulba'. Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol was born in Sorochintsi, Ukraine in 1809. In 1831, Gogol brought out the first volume of his Ukrainian stories, 'Evenings on a Farm Near Dikanka'. It met with immediate success, and he followed it a year later with a second volume. ‘The Nose’ is regarded as a masterwork of comic short fiction, and ‘The Overcoat’ is now seen as one of the greatest short stories ever written; some years later, Dostoyevsky famously stated “We all come out from Gogol's 'Overcoat'.” He is seen by many contemporary critics as one of the greatest short story writers who has ever lived, and the Father of Russia's Golden Age of Realism.

About the Author: Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol (1809 - 1852) was a Ukrainian-born Russian dramatist, novelist and short story writer whose work was strongly influenced by Ukrainian culture. Considered by his contemporaries one of the preeminent figures of the natural school of Russian literary realism, later critics have found in Gogol's work a fundamentally romantic sensibility, with strains of Surrealism and the grotesque. His early works were influenced by his Ukrainian upbringing, Ukrainian culture and folklore. --Wikipedia

John Cournos, born Ivan Grigorievich Korshun (1881 - 1966), was a writer and translator of Russian-Jewish background who spent his later life in exile. In June 1912, he moved to London, where he freelanced as an interviewer and critic for both UK and US publications and began his literary career as a poet and, later, novelist. He later emigrated to the US, where he spent the rest of his life. He was one of the Imagist poets, but is better known for his novels, short stories, essays and criticism, and as a translator of Russian literature. He used the pseudonym John Courtney. He also wrote for The Philadelphia Record under the pseudonym "Gorky." Later in life he married Helen Kestner (1893-1960), who was also an author, under the pseudonym Sybil Norton. However, he is probably best known for his unhappy affair with Dorothy L. Sayers, fictionalized by Sayers in the detective book Strong Poison (1930) and by Cournos himself in The Devil Is an English Gentleman (1932). --Wikipedia
