Gogol & Nabokov
I do not have my copy of VN's study of Gogol at hand and some years have
passed since I last read it, and so I pose this question:

Is VN's discussion of Gogol burning the second part of Dead Souls
before he died in any way relevant to DM's decision to publish TOoL despite his
father's wish that it be burned?
