Story by Nikolai Gogol.

"Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol (1809-1852) - (Russian: Никола́й Васи́льевич Го́голь) was a Russian dramatist, novelist and short story writer.

His early works, such as Evenings on a Farm Near Dikanka, were influenced by his Ukrainian upbringing, Ukrainian culture and folklore."
