Amusing fact, in all the portraits of the writer, his nose looks different - that was his initiative. Also, The Nose "(Russian: Nose Nos) is a satirical short story by Nikolai Gogol written during his time living in St. Petersburg. During this time, Gogol's works were primarily focused on the grotesque and absurd, with a romantic twist.
The idea of visual style refers to the classical image of St. Petersburg in art, as a kind of mysterious,
refined space. Everything is unstable, everything flows, everything is ephemeral.
Written between 1835 and 1836, "The Nose" tells the story of a St. Petersburg official whose nose leaves his face and develops a life of its own.
"The Nose" was originally published in The Contemporary, a literary journal owned by Alexander Pushkin
. The use of a nose as the main source of conflict in the story could have been due to Gogol's own experience with an oddly shaped nose, which was often the subject of self-deprecating jokes in letters.
The use of iconic landmarks in the story, as well as the sheer absurdity of the story, has made "The Nose" an important part of St. Petersburg's literary tradition.
To this is added the recognizable profile of N.V. Gogol, a Russian classic of world significance, a resident of the northern capital and the author of the revolutionary story "Nos" for his time.
