Enjoyment was written on his face: some Gogols Overcoat book were even favourites with him; and when he encountered these, he smiled, winked, and worked with his lips, till it seemed as though each letter might be read in his face, as his pen traced it. But they had seen him. His feet were bare, after the fashion of tailors who sit at work; and the first thing which caught the eye was his thumb, with a deformed nail thick and strong as a turtle's shell. Exaggerated ascetic practices undermined his health and he fell into a state of deep depression. After defending autocracyserfdomand the Orthodox Church in his book Selected Passages from Correspondence with his FriendsGogol came under attack from his former patron Vissarion Belinsky.

He must have some new Gogols Overcoat book, and pay a debt of long standing to the shoemaker for putting new tops to his old boots, and he must order three shirts from the seamstress, and a couple of pieces of linen. On the night of 24 February he burned some of his manuscripts, which contained most of the second part of Dead Souls. When his cloak becomes so frayed that it can no longer protect him against the bitter cold, he dedicates himself to saving enough money to purchase a new cloak. Gogol spent the winter of —37 in Paris[26] among Russian expatriates and Polish exilesfrequently meeting the Polish poets Adam Mickiewicz and Bohdan Zaleski. It is considered that he burnt the second part of the novel influenced by one priest.

Gogols Overcoat book felt like it was holiday. Each individual attached to them nowadays thinks all society insulted in his person. He wanted to take leave of the host; but they would not let him go, saying that he must not fail to drink a glass of champagne in honour of his new garment. Two or three months more of hunger and Akakiy Akakievitch had accumulated about eighty rubles. His mother, the wife of a Government official and a very fine woman, made all due arrangements for having the child baptised. It could be described as a linguistic phantasmagoria - full of people and things with a hallucinatory reality that rushes into the surreal.
