His speech's every syllable / Engenders for him cruel foes, / And all men, whether smart or dull, / Are quick to vilify him. / / They curse at him from every side, / And only when they see his corpse / They'll understand how much he did, / And that in hate, he was yet full of love!--from 'On the Day of Gogol's Death' as translated by (?) on the site 'From the Ends to the Beginning: A Bilingual Anthology of Russian Verse.'
