A lot of discussions and an evil criticism towards the authorcaused the story of Gogol "The Nose." The summary tells of a fantastic story, which under no circumstances could really happen. Because of the unrealistic plot, not all magazines agreed to print this work, the writer had to make several changes to his story several times. Few of Gogol's contemporaries realized that the "Nose" has a double meaning. Describing the absurd situation, Nikolai Vasilyevich wanted to show the defects of the society of his time.
The fact that the collegiate assessor is in dire need ofdecent appearance, narrates (about this, in fact, says the work itself), a brief summary. The nose destroys all his hopes, because Kovalev came to the capital in order to find a good job and get married. The disappearance of such a significant part of the body makes the assessor powerless and unnecessary.
Oval-Politzmeister Kovalev does not find the house,therefore, it is going to advertise in the newspaper about the loss of a part of the body, but it also fails there - this is exactly what the short story says after the work. The nose can not just disappear from a decent person, so the private bailiff only listens with irritation the major's complaint and does not help.
According to the capital, rumors spread that the nosethe collegiate assessor strolls along Nevsky Prospekt, walks in the Tavrichesky Garden, goes to Junker's store. But on April 7, everything fell into place - Kovalev woke up and found the loss in his rightful place.
The summary of "Nose", though brief, but allthe same holds the story that in just one day the major was able to visit many places: in the confectionery, in the department, even lucky enough to meet Podtochinu with his daughter. A description of the story of the happy Kovalev author interrupts the recognition that this story is invented. Gogol even is surprised that some writers take such stories for the basis of their works.
