Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol, in his collection of stories “Mirgorod", pictured a cheerless reality of the contemporary Russia. Burdened with the general situation and with his own work, which faithfully reflected reality, he is both the writer of unusual humour and great joy of life and the painter of romantic heroics and the artist of urban side of life of small and poor clerks. In his works, there are elements of folklore, with folk fantasy, and, also, realistic pictures of a city with fantasy on the verge between the dream and reality.
