Nikolai to the chief of the police and to

Nikolai Gogol’s story “The
Nose” is divided into three separate parts. The story begins on the 25th
of March, when a barber, Ivan Yakovlevich, cuts a freshly made bread in half. To
his surprise, he finds a nose inside of the bread, which he later on recognizes
to belong to one of his regular customers – Major Kavalyov (a Collegiate
Assessor). As soon as Ivan’s wife sees the nose she demands him to get rid of
it as fast as possible, which leads him to an attempt to throw it into the Neva
River. However, he was caught by a police officer.  The second part begins with the awakening of
Major Kovalyov and his discovery about his missing nose. He decides to take a look at the mirror and for his surprise all
he could see was that there was flat skin on the place of his nose, without any
scars or damage. He gets seriously nervous as he understands that this
situation would worsen his chances in finding a suitable wife. Therefore, he
decides to go to the chief of the police and to report what has happened. On his
way, Major Kavalyov manages to see his nose walking on the street and
pretending to be a completely separate individual with its own unique
personality. The nose was dressed with a uniform, thus making him look as an
important official. Major Kavalyov manages to get close to his nose and speak
to him, however the nose turns down the offer to go back to his face. After that
Kavalyov decides to contact the chief of the police. Unfortunately, he was not
home at the time so the Major got the idea to post an advertisement about his
lost nose in the newspaper. Sadly, the newspaper declines the idea of such an
ad and Kavalyov has to return home empty handed. As he returns home he finds
the police officer and Ivan Yakovlevich, who returns his nose. Kovalyov seems extrely happy, however he soon realizes
that he cannot reattach his nose. He gets help from a doctor, but the result is
the same. The last part is relatively short, however it shows the ending of the
story. It takes place on the 7th of April, when Kovalyov wakes up and to his
surprise he finds his nose reattached to his face. Once this miracle happened
he finally gets relieved of his stress and goes back to his natural habits.
