Master and Margarita by Mikhail Afanasevich Bulgakov

Book Description

"My favorite novel -it's just the greatest explosion of imagination, craziness, satire, humor, and heart." (Daniel Radcliffe). The devil with his retinue, a poet incarcerated in a mental institution for speaking the truth, and a startling re-creation of the story of Pontius Pilate, constitute the elements out of which Mikhail Bulgakov wove The Master and Margarita, the unofficial masterpiece of twentieth-century Soviet fiction. Long suppressed in its native land, this account of strange doings in Moscow in the 1930s provides us with the essence of the sceptical, trenchant, unadulterated voice of dissent.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » Bulgakov spent more than ten years working on this novel knowing that it could never be published (the full text was not published in Moscow until 33 years after the author's death). This is a truly subversive novel. It is a dazzling construction of three different stories, told in different tones, overlapping and intersecting each other to create a dense, sometimes bewildering, fantasy. To summarize the plot: in Judea Pontius Pilate is faced with interrogating a Jewish rabbi while in Moscow the Devil has arrived, accompanied by a large black cat who proves a poor shot with an automatic... A marvellous, magical book. (Kirkus UK)

Author Biography - Mikhail Afanasevich Bulgakov

Mikhail Bulgakov (1891 - 1940) was born and educated in Kiev where he graduated as a doctor in 1916, but gave up the practice of medicine in 1920 to devote himself to literature. In 1925 he completed the satirical novella The Heart of a Dog, which remained unpublished in the Soviet Union until 1987. This was one of the many defeats he was to suffer at the hands of his censors. By 1930 Bulgakov had become so frustrated by the political atmosphere and the suppression of his works that he wrote to Stalin begging to be allowed to emigrate if he was not to be given the opportunity to make his living as a writer in the USSR. Stalin telephoned him personally and offered to arrange a job for him at the Moscow Arts Theatre instead. In 1938, a year before contracting a fatal illness, he completed his prose masterpiece, The Master and Margarita. He died in 1940. In 1966-7, thanks to the persistance of his widow, the novel made a first, incomplete, appearance in Moskva, and in 1973 appeared in full.
