N.V.GOGOL’S «INSPECTOR»: METAMORPHOSIS OF THE COMIC ON STAGE

Abstract: 

The present paper discusses a general issue of identification and interpretation of cultural patterns in for-eign culture. In the Marburg Theater production of Nikolai Gogol’s «Revizor» («The Inspector») the spir-it of Russian life «is translated» into the language of contemporary German cultural reality. The author at-tempts to establish the limits of semantic transformations of literary and nonliterary realities, as well as to examine the metamorphoses of the comic in this Russian-German dialogue. 

Key words: 

N.V.Gogol, «Revizor» («The Inspector»), the comic, theatrical interpretation.
