How does Khlestakov behave?

In N. V. Gogol's comedy "The Inspector-General" Khlestakov takes the place of the main character. The author was able to show the hero, who knows how to develop actions. This is the novelty of the writer. The image of Khlestakov motivates the development of actions in the work. Gogol sends a new impulse to him, which makes it possible to develop the plot. Thanks to this hero, the situation of deception dominates in the comedy.

The image of Khlestakov

Khlestakov himself is just emptiness and perfect nonsense. This person does not have his own content, he does not have his own content. Therefore, we can see how Khlestakov behaves. His reincarnation and the play of roles imposed on him are very easy for him. He himself does not understand that he is making intrigue. Not knowing the reasons for such a festive reception, Khlestakov rejoices honors. He has no idea that he is taken for an auditor. His actions further convince others that an auditor from St. Petersburg came to them.

His behavior is the main character misleading the rest.When he sees the town activist for the first time, he intimidates him in order not to go to prison for hotel debt, although he himself is frightened. Career, which he invented himself, he tells in the house of the Mayor, than raises himself in the eyes of others. Depending on the situation in which Khlestakov finds himself, his appearance and behavior change. He has virtually no vulnerabilities. How Khlestakov behaves depends on the situation in the Mayor’s house. It can be called a chameleon, which changes its color in order to survive.

Exit unscathed from any situation.

The protagonist of the comedy without any problems comes out of any situation thanks to the sincerity with which he plays the roles that were imposed on him. He wriggles out like a fish in his hands so that his lie does not open. For example, Khlestakov asserts that he is the author of the work "Yuri Miloslavsky." And as soon as Marya Antonovna makes a remark to him, he immediately says that there are two works with the same title.

Khlestakov, in fact, does not think about why his position has changed so dramatically, he does not want to and does not know how to think, he is adapting to the random progress of events.He makes maximum use of suitable moments, with all his behavior shows his position in a big city. At the same time, he himself believes in his stories, until his tongue refuses to drink alcohol.

The image of the protagonist Khlestakov from the comedy “The Inspector General” has its own depth. In it lies the truth of life. Khlestakovy present among us. It is said more than once that such people have a void in the middle. The behavior of Khlestakov makes us think about our actions and the actions of other people.
