Mapping Gogol


Five stories are included in Mapping Gogol’s Petersburg: Nevskii Prospekt, The Portrait, Diary of a Madman, The Nose and The Overcoat. The places in these texts have been geo-referenced to produce two maps:

1. Gogol’s Petersburg Tales, in which the spatial distribution of the five stories can be compared.

2. Gogol’s Petersburg: Appearance and Reference, which maps the difference between those places where the action takes place, and those to which reference is made, either by the characters or the narrator.
