Nikolai Vasilievich GOGOL

The Gamblers

“The Gamblers” is a masterpiece of dramatic suspense, and has been hailed in Europe as a model for plot development. With a few strokes, Gogol drew this set of characters whose purpose in life is so similar, yet whose manners are so individual. When “The Gamblers” was first produced in Berlin, it made a striking impression on the audience whose mystification was complete to the very end.
