Erzählt wird die tragische und zugleich komische Geschichte von Akakij Akakijewitsch und dem Aufstieg einer unbedeutenden zu einer bedeutenden Person. Akakij Akakijewitsch, dessen Leben bereits mit einer bezeichnenden Namensgebung und Taufe beginnt, führt ein tristes, einsames Leben in Sankt Petersburg. Er ist mit Leib und Seele Beamter, genauer gesagt: Kopist. Der Beruf des Abschreibens füllt sein ganzes Leben aus. Er ist davon so begeistert, dass er sogar Lieblingsbuchstaben hat. Zeitweise arbeitet er zwar abends zu Hause weiter, aber am gesellschaftlichen Leben nimmt er nicht teil. Von seinem Arbeitskollegen wird er nur verspottet, was er jedoch ignoriert bzw. gar nicht wahrnimmt. Sein Leben ändert sich erst, als er beschließt, sich einen neuen Mantel zu leisten. Nach langem Sparen (und Hungern) hält Akakij Akakijewitsch endlich seinen neuen Mantel in den Händen. Der Mantel verwandelt Akakij Akakijewitsch sowohl äußerlich als auch innerlich.

Über den Autor (2018)

Nikolai Vasilevich Gogol was born in 1809 in the Ukraine. His father was an amateur playwright who had a small estate with a number of serfs. From the ages of 12 to 19, young Gogol attended a boarding school where he became known for his sharp wit and ability to amuse his classmates. After school he worked as a government clerk. He soon began writing memories of his childhood. His quaint depictions of the Ukrainian countryside marked his style and helped to make him famous. Gogol quickly gained fame and formed a friendship with the influential poet, Aleksandr Pushkin. Gogol is largely remembered for his realistic characterizations, his rich imagination, and his humorous style. His works include Mirgorod, a collection of short stories including Taras Bulba. Gogol's wit is evident in his short story, The Nose, where a man's nose wanders off around town in a carriage. Gogol's masterpiece is the novel Dead Souls. In this work, a swindler plots to buy from landowners their dead serfs. Towards the end of Gogol's life, his creative powers faded and he fled to Moscow. Here, he came under the power of a fanatical priest. Ten days before his death he burned some manuscripts of the second part of Dead Souls. He died of starvation in 1852, on the cusp of madness.
