The authoress depicts and analyses the devils which are the characters of early Gogol's short stories. Genealogy of the devil in the history of human awareness as well as the unique way of depicting it in the Eastern Slavonic culture is considered here. Gogol's devil has folk origins, is portrayed humorously and differs completely from the figure of Satan, the Prince of Darkness, that one could come across more frequently in literature so far and that originates clearly from the Bible.
