These are two individuals who have been the best friends, but a simple conflict is about to erupt a long time conflict that lasted for more than a decade.
Drug addiction is a major social evil of modern times.
It has spread its tentacles among the young and the old, and the rich and the poor.
The judge finds it hard to believe what is happening between these former friends.
He tries to convince them to make amends which infuriates the friend causing him to storm out of the courthouse.
The chief of police acts as an integrative instrument trying to bring the two Ivans together (Gogol’ at al.).
They do not seem to be ready to reconcile voluntarily.
This tale is all about an absurd argument between two formerly good friends living in the town of Myrgorod. It is about two men taking each other to court because one called the other a goose.
Their bloated ego of these warring friends captures the whole story.
They foolishly decide to leave the courts without any decision, instead of pursuing their squabble in court (Gogolʹ, Leonard, and Constance). One can only imagine the consequences, and in most cases, one spends more time thinking about it after reading it than the time one spent in reading.
Unsurprisingly individuals have the greatest impact on the way their interpersonal conflicts unfold.
