I do not have my copy of VN's study of Gogol at hand and some years have
passed since I last read it, and so�I�pose this question:�

�� �Is VN's discussion of�Gogol burning�the second part of Dead
Souls�before he died in any way relevant to�DM's�decision to publish
TOoL despite his father's wish that it be burned?�
