Dates in History
1852—Nikolay Gogol, writer, dies.
Russian literary language as it is, is partly formed by Gogols prose as well as by Pushkins poetry. His novel Dead souls is supposed to include two parts, but after writing the first part Gogol turns religious, and on February 11, 1852, being in a terrible mental state he burns the second part. On February 21 he dies. Thus disappears the second part of the finest Russian novel without ever having been published.
