Nikolai Gogol’s “The Overcoat” and Chekhov’s “Misery”

 1:Nikolai Gogol’s “The Overcoat” Why is there constant reference to “in a certain administrative office? What other phrases are repeated? What is the effect of the repetition?(100 words) http://www.eastoftheweb.com/short-stories/UBooks/Over.shtml 2: Chekhov’s “Misery” In this story, misery and grief are their own characters. Chekhov masterfully illustrates through vivid – as well as subtle imagery, powerful descriptions, precise and well thought out language and underlying tone. Iona’s grief over the loss of his son is palpable (you can feel it). In 3-4 paragraphs please give me some of your perceptions on how Chekhov carefully selects his words and images to give the reader this feeling of misery.Provide SPECIFIC textual support (with proper citations) demonstrating these mind pictures that lend to the whole aura of the piece. Please pay attention to the language he uses, it is powerful and goes to the theme of the story. (1 page) https://commapress.co.uk/resources/online-short-stories/misery-anton-chekhov
