Read full description of the books Novelle moscovite:Gogol un secolo dopo
I racconti di Zoščenko raccolti in questo volume sono estremamente divertenti, e narrano con uno stile gogoliano la vita comune di personaggi marginali nell'Unione Sovietica degli anni '20 e '30.
Non stupisce che l'autore abbia subito la censura del regime, perché in poche pagine - tanto sono lunghi in genere i singoli racconti - Zoščenko mette alla berlina i miti e le falsità dello stalinismo.
Esemplari da questo punto di vista i racconti Un fiammifero reazionario, I vantaggi del telefono sovietico, Le donne non capiscono.
Altri racconti prendono di mira gli eterni vizi della società russa, che si riproducono uguali anche dopo la rivoluzione.
Un libro da leggere di getto, sghignazzando amaramente.
Read information about the authorMikhail Zoshchenko (Russian: Михаил Зощенко) was born in Poltava, Ukraine, on 29th July, 1895. He studied law at the University of Petersburg, but did not graduate.
During the First World War Zoshchenko served in the Russian Army. A supporter of the October Revolution, Zoshchenko joined the Red Army and fought against the Whites in the Civil War.
In 1922 Zoshchenko joined the literary group, the Serapion Brothers. Inspired by the work of Yevgeni Zamyatin, the group took their name from the story by Ernst T. Hoffmann, the Serapion Brothers, about an individualist who vows to devote himself to a free, imaginative and non-conformist art. Other members included Nickolai Tikhonov, Mikhail Slonimski, Victor Shklovsky, Vsevolod Ivanov and Konstantin Fedin. Russia's most important writer of the period, Maxim Gorky, also sympathized with the group's views.
Zoshchenko's early stories dealt with his experiences in the First World War and the Russian Civil War. He gradually developed a new style that relied heavily on humour. This was reflected in his stories that appeared in Tales (1923), Esteemed Citizens (1926), What the Nightingale Sang (1927) and Nervous People (1927).
Zoshchenko satires were popular with the Russian people and he was one of the country's most widely read writers in the 1920s. Although Zoshchenko never directly attacked the Soviet system, he was not afraid to highlight the problems of bureaucracy, corruption, poor housing and food shortages.
In the 1930s Zoshchenko came under increasing pressure to conform to the idea of socialist realism. As a satirist, Zoshchenko found this difficult, and attempts such as the Story of one Life were not successful.
Zoshchenko increasing got into trouble with the Soviet authorities. His autobiographical, Before Sunrise, was banned in 1943 and three years later his literary career was brought to an end when he was expelled from the Soviet Writers' Union after the publication of The Adventures of a Monkey in the literary magazine, Zvezda.
Mikhail Zoshchenko died in Leningrad on 22nd July, 1958.
