    Ревизор The Inspector General The Government Inspector Nikolai Gogol The Government Inspector is a satirical play by the Russian and Ukrainian dramatist and novelist Nikolai Gogol Originally published in 1836 The play is a comedy of errors satirizing human greed stupidity and the extensive political corruption of Imperial RussiaThe corrupt officials of a small Russian town headed by the Mayor react with terror to the news that an incognito inspector the incognito one will soon be arriving in their town to investigate them The flurry of activity to cover up their considerable misdeeds is interrupted by the report that a suspicious person has arrived two weeks previously from Saint Petersburg and is staying at the inn That person however is not an inspector; it is Khlestakov a foppish civil servant with a wild imaginationHaving learned that Khlestakov has been charging his considerable hotel bill to the Crown the Mayor and his crooked cronies are immediately certain that this upper class twit is the dreaded inspector For uite some time however Khlestakov does not even realize that he has been mistaken for someone else Meanwhile he enjoys the officials' terrified deference and moves in as a guest in the Mayor's house He also demands and receives massive loans from the Mayor and all of his associates He also flirts outrageously with the Mayor's wife and daughter تاریخ نخستین خوانش بیست و یکم ماه اکتبر سال 1977 میلادیعنوان بازرس؛ نیکلای گوگول؛ مترجم محمدرضا نیک بخش؛ تهران، بامداد، 1355، در 192 ص؛ موضوع نمایشنامه های نویسندگان روس سده 19 معنوان بازرس کمدی در پنج پرده؛ نیکلای گوگول؛ مترجم آبتین گلکار؛ تهران، هرمس، 1388، در 147 ص؛ شابک 9789643636029؛نمایشنامه ی «بازرس»، با خبر آمدن یک بازرس، به شهری دورافتاده، آغاز می‌شود خبر، مسئولان ادارات را، به تکاپو می‌اندازد، تا برای نابسامانیها و تخلفات خود، و همقطارانشان، تدبیری بیندیشند مردمان شهر نیز، به چالش می‌افتند، تا نارضایتی خویش از شهردار شهر خویش را، به گوش بازرس برسانند و ؛ ا شربیانی

    The Inspector General by Gogol is one of the best satirical plays that I've read Gogol is well known for his satire either subtle or presumptuous Satire is his forte And in The Inspector General it is expressed in its best Gogol voiced strongly against the greed corruption and inefficiency of the government officials His various works are proof of this But in my view it is in The Inspector General that Gogol discloses his views stronglyThe story is set in a provincial town and it exposes the greed corruption inefficiency and the despotism of the local officials on an official scale and also vanity self importance and opportunism on a personal scale These officials suander government money which is granted to improve the facilities in the town They make the life of the people miserable by demanding exorbitant bribes for work to be done or for trade to be carried on and harass them unnecessarily just to show their power And when the news of an official visit from Petersburg reaches their ears these officials concoct a joint venture on how to deceive him Could they deceive him or would they be deceived in turn?The play conveys a powerful message and the satire is presumptuous The comical tone that is so perfectly maintained is most entertaining Despite the gravity of the story it was altogether hilarious It was such a fun read I cannot remember the last time I've laughed over a play this much It was so entertaining Had I watched a performance I'm sure to have died of laughterGogol has expressed his views so boldly through the play that while it won him critical acclaim it also incurred severe disapproval of the subjects of his play that he was compelled to leave Russia That in itself is proof of its success The Inspector General is undoubtedly one of the best works by Gogol seconding only to Dead Souls and as I've already said one of the best satirical plays that have come across me

    This play is satire at its best Corruption greed vanity opportunism and snobbism are comically displayed And before the spectator has a chance to get on a high horse Gogol reminds us that these characters are taken from real life and each of us has some of the same vices The writing is brilliant astute and a pleasure to read I haven't seen this play performed

    Corrupting the Official3 March 2014 To start off I feel that suggesting that Gogol is a Russian would be a bit of an insult to the Ukrainians especially at this point in time since his biography on Goodreads indicates that his mother was Polish and the father was a Ukranian Cossack and he also wrote in both Russian and Ukrainian though no doubt the languages are little than a dialect of each other – though I would not be running around Maiden Suare screaming that at this point in time I did not realise that I would actually enjoy this play as much as I did before I started reading it but within the first couple of pages I suddenly discovered that the theme that Gogol works with is a very common theme in a lot of modern comedies the idea of the mistaken identity This is similar to the idea that comes out of Shakespeare's A Comedy of Errors which is included in the book in which I read this particular play however the mistaken identity does not come about because of identical twins but rather because a visitor to a small town is mistaken for a high official who is believed to be on his way to audit the town's books The play itself has been turned into a movie staring Danny Kaye the video that I watched on Youtube has since been taken downthough there are a number of differences both minor and major between this film and the original play view spoilersuch as the main character who is mistaken for the inspector general becoming the new mayor to the town hide spoiler

    This play is a satire on the rampant corruption in governments and the public adminstration offices I found it pretty funnyA town full of neck deep corrupt officials come to know that the government was sending an Inspector general to their town for inspection They are scared shitless and everyone scrambles to fix and cover up their corruption before the inspector arrives One of these gang of officials notices a man in an inn refusing to pay his bills and he ASSUMES that only a high standing official from the capital can be so adamant and get away with not paying bills while infact the man was not paying the bills because he had no money The official runs and passes the information that the inspector has arrived What follows is every corrupt official trying to soften up the pretend inspector who plunders them for his own ends

    I was looking forward to this play but although the translator's introduction praised it to the skies I ended up not being able to get too interested It may have shown the standard operating procedure of the corrupt Russian officials of the day and it certainly was funny at times but it was also predictableWhen I read something and think 'oh this or that is going to happen' I write down the idea and then see how long it takes to come true if at all This time I was right on every count Mistaken identity swindling faked romance expected ending the works Gogol may have been The Author of his day but I skimmed through the last three acts in this five act play I was bored However I do want to read a couple of his short story collections that are available at Project Gutenberg so I won't give up on the man completely just yet

    A very entertaining play based on the irresponsibility of heads of government who was mistaken about the identity of an inspector They did everything to prevent him from taking into account their lack of responsibility This fake inspector used their stupidity and allowed himself to take from each a very large sum of money and all the services he wanted Gogol highlights in a very entertaining setting how governors and heads of public authorities are only interested in their personal interestsGOVERNOR furiously Engaged Bosh A fig for your engaged Confound yourengagement In desperation Look at me look—all the world all Christendom all of yousee how the Governor's fooled Ass Booby Dotard that I am Shakes his fists at himselfAh you fat nose Taking an icicle a rag for a man of rank And now he's rattling along theroad with his bells and telling the whole world the story Not only do you get made alaughing stock of but some uill driver some paper stainer will go and put you in a play It'smaddening He'll spare neither your rank nor your calling and all will grin and clap theirhands Who are you laughing at? laugh at yourselves Ah you Stamps on theground ferociously I would do for all the pack of scribblers Ugh The uill splittersDamned liberals Devil's brood I would scrag you all I'd grind you to powder You'd be adish for the foul fiend and the devil's cap your resting place Shakes his fist and grinds hisheel on the ground Then after a short silence I can't collect myself yet It's true that if Godwill punish a man he first drives him mad To be sure what was there like a Revizor in thatcrack brained trifler? Nothing at all Not the resemblance of half a little finger—and all ofthem shout at once the Revizor the Revizor Who was it then who first gave out he was theRevizor? Answer meThis latest reply from the governor who became aware of his unforgivable acts is very touching and significant the literature in each country and each century describes the situation of peoples and how they suffered under totalitarian and authoritarian systems

    I taught his Dead Souls a few times but have just re read this a book I bought at a Princeton postdoc seminar in 1978 with the noted Russian scholar Kathryn Szczepanska Hunter Coll in it Gogol's comedy satirizes the ranks of Czarist government where a “federal” inspector is rud to be looking into this rural town and the fearful residents seize on a slim college age gambler passing through as the great authority because he exhibits classy manners from St Petersburg Hilarious because so precisely observed from life the “types” first the unimaginative Superintendent of Schools Luka; 2 the Judge named “Bungle Steal” who has read six books a bit of a Freethinker who lets the courtroom janitors raise geese in his court;3 the Town Manager Police Chief center of the play takes bribes of course but he asserts mostly hunting dog puppies and worries about complaints; 4 the simple Postmaster who opens every letter out of traditional curiosity and caution; and 5 the Supervisor of Charitable Institutions the hospital and prison corpulent and awkward but still a schemer Lower on the hierarchy of power Tweedle dee and Tweedle dum Bobchinsky and Dubchinsky both fat gesticulators; various functionaries and cops like the one who’s sent into the suburbs to break up a fight and comes back near sunrise drunk Boozing or alcoholism features as a running theme along with Bribery or Corruption In the last page the Police Chief recognizes he has made a complete fool of himself but blames the tattling young Whiper Snapper who “skims along the road with his bells jingling He’ll spread the story all over the earth” Gogol’s Chichikov in Dead Souls six years later travels the vast country in a tax scam amassing peasants and wealth from illiterates Other traveller satirists Faulkner’s Ratliffe in his trilogy as well as Tom Sawyer The Police Chief on his rung in the top down government compares the young tale teller to journalists “You uill drivers you damned Liberals you devil’s breed”230 Talk about continuing relevance And get this Gogol is from Ukraine where the college he attended now bears his name a Nizhyn Gogol State University If Manaford had been studying Gogol in Ukraine I would be his chief supporter; but curiously “plus ça change” Putin’s Russia has the same top down hierarchy of Czarist and even Soviet Russia Wonderfully as the Police Chief’s wife looks forward to the Capital City she anticipates “all sorts of delicate soups” and I was told decades ago that beside blintzes Russian cuisine has only two high points bread and soup In fact in first year Russian we were taught ordering food to order soup Я хочу супу soupu When deciding how to bribe the young Inspector direct money may be frowned on so “how about an offering from the nobility for a monument of some kind?” Then the Postmaster offers “here is some money left unclaimed at the Post Office”199 Think of the US fight over Confederate monuments today and of course the tearing down of Soviet monuments by Eastern European cities free from Moscow’s yoke—for how much longer? The issue of memorializing Confederate White Supremacy brings us to the caution that Gogol as arguably Shakespeare assumes a casual anti Semitism Probably both derive from ignorance having met precious few Jews—whom I must add have formed most of my lifelong friends Additionally with Gogol a comic master has to build on common assumptions Occasionally Gogol contradicts himself on this noting that the anti Police Chief complaints issue from the illiterate businessmen who are Jews Even the anti Semitic would admit Jews are enviably literate In one last 21st C US parallel Gogol was converted by an Elder to see his comic writing as sin He burned most of the MS to his Dead Souls part 2 Purgatory on the model of Dante's Divina Commedia The house where he burned his MS still stands in Moscow And like Griboyedov Gogol died young only eight years older at 42 largely of self induced ascetic malnourishment
