"The Nose" by Nikolai Gogol

"An incredible thing happened in Petersburg on March 25"

"The barber, Ivan Yakovlevich, who lives on Voznesensky Avenue . . . woke up ather early and was aware of the smell of hot bread."

"Kovaliov was a Caucasus-made collegiate assessor . . . . In order to feel distinguished and important he never referred to himself as a collegiate assessor but employed the equivalent military rank of major."

"I live in Sadovaya Street: just aks, does Major Kovaliov live here?"

"A carriage stopped at the house entrance. Its door opened. A unformed gentleman appeared. Stooping, he jumped out of the carriage, ran up to the steps and entered the house. A combination of horror and amazement swept over Kovaliev when he recognized the stranger as his own nose."

"[The carriage] stopped before Kazan Cathedral."

"Nevsky Prospect was thronged with people."

"He got into the cab and kept exhorting the cabbie again and again: 'come on, let's go! Quick!'"
