About this deal
Aleksandr Puškinin vuosina 1823–1831 useassa osassa ilmestynyt Jevgeni Onegin teki nuoreen poikaan ja hänen tovereihinsa valtavan vaikutuksen. Hän pyysi äidiltään vuonna 1830 että hänet otettaisiin pois kauppakoulusta kesken kurssin. Hänessä oli jo lapsena syttynyt halu kirjoittaa, kiinnostus humanistisiin tieteisiin, erityisesti kaunokirjallisuuteen ja hän halusi lähteä opiskelemaan kielitiedettä yliopistoon.

In "Son of Oblomov" on the London stage years ago, Spike Milligan and Bill Owen were a few minutes into the opening dialogue when Spike noticed some late-comers being shown to their seats.Goncharov was born in Simbirsk into the family of a wealthy merchant; as a reward for his grandfather's military service, they were elevated to Russian nobility status.  He was educated at a boarding school, then the Moscow College of Commerce, and finally at Moscow State University. After graduating, he served for a short time in the office of the Governor of Simbirsk, before moving to Saint Petersburg where he worked as government translator and private tutor, while publishing poetry and fiction in private almanacs. Goncharov's first novel, A Common Story, was published in Sovremennik in 1847. Liukkonen, Petri. "Ivan (Aleksandrovich) Goncharov". Books and Writers (kirjasto.sci.fi).

He is inspired in this short-lived effort by two figures. The first is Stolz, his childhood friend and his antithesis: ambitious, intellectually curious, and hard-working. No reader of Oblomov has ever fallen in love with the virtuous Stolz. Goncharov invests him with great moral authority: Stolz and Oblomov have a running debate about Oblomov’s idleness, and while Oblomov holds his own for a while with some trenchant criticisms of the Petersburg rat race, Stolz forces him to concede that being a shut-in has not led to a fulfilling life. It is Stolz who coins the famous term for Oblomov’s condition, or at least his worst tendencies: Oblomovshchina, which Marian Schwartz, in her fine new translation, has restored to the original Russian (it has been translated in other editions as “oblomovism” or “oblomovitis”).Shvetsova, Tatiana (host) (22 August 2011).

Oblomov From Bildungsroman to Schlafroman: Goncharov’s Oblomov
Příběh se vyvíjí až v okamžiku, kdy mu Štolc představí svou známou Olgu, mladou a krásnou dívku a talentovanou zpěvačku, do které se Oblomov zamiluje. Ta ho ale donutí být aktivnější, více číst a chodit do společnosti, s pomocí Štolce Oblomov dokonce začne konečně na své vesnici provádět ona plánovaná zlepšení, takže začne opět prosperovat. The novel was adapted for the stage by Italian writer Riccardo Aragno.  Aragno's script for Oblomov was bought by Spike Milligan's production company in early 1964. Milligan had long nurtured hopes of transitioning from comedy to serious drama. To this end, Milligan rehearsed for seven weeks with director Frank Dunlop and castmates Joan Greenwood, Bill Owen, and Dyall Valentine.
Goncharov was born into a wealthy merchant family and, after graduating from Moscow University in 1834, served for nearly 30 years as an official, first in the Ministry of Finance and afterward in the Ministry of Censorship. The only unusual event in his uneventful life was his voyage to Japan made in 1852–55 as secretary to a Russian admiral; this was described in Fregat Pallada (1858; “The Frigate Pallas”).
