Summary (From the publisher):

Gogol ranges from the dark Gothic of A Terrible Revenge to the folkloric levity of Christmas Eve, and the pitilessly ironic Story of How Ivan Ivanovich Quarrelled with Ivan Nikiforovich. An entire panoply of human--and not so human--types populates these pages: swashbuckling Cossacks, market hucksters, lissom water-nymphs, beguiling witches, feckless devils, philandering village headmen, and amorous clerics.
