As an example, recall the "Dead souls", where N. In. Gogol portrayed the landowners, each of whom is a personification of certain human qualities, but they all together represent the "face" of nineteenth-century Russia.
Another distinctive feature of artistic style is subjective time, the presence of the author's imagination or "pravosoznanie" of reality.
