Yes he did!!

He started to think about how his loved ones would never be able to call him Gogol and how his name will die in time, as the givers and keepers of his name, his father who is dead and his mother who was on a verge of a differnt sort of departure, were all leaving him. Thats why he sorts comfort at the end by starting to read the novel that his father had given him like 30 years back "The Short Stories Of Nikolai Gogol"
