Gogol's Overcoat, literary obsession
The Overcoat is a short story about an obscure personage with a humble life in the small world of administration clerks. No ambitions, no desires.
One extraordinary fact changes his life: his overcoat is beyond repair. He needs a new one. Stringent savings and months later he proudly wears his new overcoat. His happiness is shattered when his overcoat is violently ripped from him. He becomes ill and dies. But the Overcoat comes back and haunts those people who mistreated him.
