"Diary of a Madman" (1835) (Russian: Записки сумасшедшего) is a farcical short story by Nikolai Gogol. Along with "The Overcoat" and "The Nose," "Diary of a Madman" is considered to be one of Gogol's greatest short stories. The tale centers on the life of a minor civil servant during the repressive era of Nicholas I. Following the format of a diary, the story shows the descent of the protagonist, Poprishchin, into insanity. "Diary of a Madman" is the only one of Gogol's works written in first person, as the story follows diary entry format.
