Books Unbound – Short, With a Wicked Tongue and Long Legs, Episode 3: “The Cloak” by Gogol”, Conclusion

Play

A three-episode program of short satiric fiction concludes with a slightly abridged version of “The Cloak” by Nikolai Gogol, read by Frank Buczolich. Gogol’s work was subjected to official censorship, and he lived in self-imposed exile for much of his adult life. At first praised by the political Left for his criticisms of Russian serfdom, his conservative loyalties toward the tsar and the Russian Orthodox Church damaged his literary standing during the Russian Revolution. “The Cloak” is a satire of Russian bureaucracy and rigid social classes, perhaps a ghost story, and an aesthetic masterpiece from a founding voice of modern Russian fiction. Produced and written by Cynthia Wolfe, with assistant producers Doug Storm and Robert Shull.

Music for “The Cloak”: Glinka, Viola Sonata, performed by Nobuko Imai
Break music: Diego Ortiz, Capona — Recercada Settima Sobre la Romanesca, performed by the Ensemble for the Seicento

Announcer: Berklea Going
Host: Sarah Torbeck
Voice of Nabokov: Tony Brewer
