    Marriage was created in 1842 and was identified by Gogol as "a totally amazing event in two acts".

And more precisely, in its primal duality, in it, it seems that there is a perpetual enmity between the senses, the body, the intellect, the spirit, between the feelings, emotions, passions and orders of duty, morality, consciousness.
