"The Nose" is a satirical short story by Nikolai Gogol. Written between 1835-1836, it tells of a St. Petersburg official whose nose leaves his face and develops a life of its own.

Dmitri Shostakovich's opera The Nose, first performed in 1930, is based on this story. A short film based on the story was made by Alexandre Alexeieff and Claire Parker in 1963 and used pinscreen animation. A play based on the short story was written by Tom Swift and produced by The Performance Corporation in 2008.
