Diaries of Madmen

Diaries of MadmenT0284597852
Diaries of Madmen is based on Nikolai Gogol's novel Diary of a Madman and composer's Piotr Ilyitch Tchaikovsky's personal diaries. Famous farcical short story by one of the greatest Russian writers Nikolai Gogol, is a funny and brutal exploration of a civil servant's Poprishchin struggle to keep a grip on reality. Another civil servant Piotr Tchaikovsky, who later became one Russia's most celebrated composers, also had a complicated relationship between his inner world and reality. His personal diaries reveal his daunting self-doubt, suicidal thoughts and loneliness. Madness might mean a failure to find your proper place in the world, or the compulsion to occupy a place to which you're not entitled. Diaries of a Madmen exposes a man's longing to find such a place for himself, a place where he is visible, where he matters, and above all, belongs.
