  • Description

    The Master And Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov weaves a tale of a devil who comes to Moscow in the guise of a Professor, portraying at the same time a distressing satire of the Soviet Union under the rule of Stalin.

    Summary Of The Book

    The intriguing book is divided into two parts, which are interwoven and interconnected. While the first part presents a picture of the present day at Moscow, the second part switch on to a completely different setting, the ancient Jerusalem. The book is inundated with scenes of destructions, death, darkness, fire, violent storms, attacks of vampires, supernatural world as well as scenes of love and sensuality.

    The story of The Master And Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov is set in Russia, back in the year 1930 when a devil in the guise of Professor Woland and four of his companions, visits Moscow during the Holy Week. They made use of black magic to dissuade those who crossed their paths. The book also features the story of Margarita and her devotional and sensuous love for her Master and how she uses black magic to bring back her lover when he disappears mysteriously. There is another storyline which pictures the crucifixion of Yeshua Ha-Notsri or Jesus Christ by Pontius Pilate.

    The Master and Margarita has a number of storylines which brings together history, religion and politics. The novel draws its inspiration from Goethe’s Faust and its underlying themes. The social-political satires are embedded in the book in an intricate manner in its storyline. The book brings to light the stark realism of Stalin’s Soviet Union, its greed, its corruption and the ever stifling life therein.

    Though, the book was written between the years 1928 to 1940, it was not until the year 1967 that it was published. The book is regarded as one of the true masterpieces of the 20th century.

    The Master And Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov has not only received its well deserved accolades from its readers but, over the years it has been adapted into a number of movies, TV series, musical opera, animated films, stage shows, and arts music and other performances.

    A masterpiece of modern Russian Literature

    Bulgakov's posthumously published novel, hailed as his magnum opus and a masterpiece of Russian literature from the Stalinist era, moves ahead in a racy, almost rambling depiction of events, which, at best, can be classified as phantasmagorical; lucid as Lewis Carol's Alice in Wonderland, yet retaining a bitter, haunting realism of a Kafka or Camus, that challenges on its head the Communist notion of faith, divinity and God, while exposing the limitations of a rational mind.

    Master and margarita

    The best satire I read so far. The portrayal of Woland and pontius pilate is remarkable. And the Ivan character keeps your head focused in the purpose of the satire.

    A masterpiece, for sure !!!

    I received this book yesterday. Roughly its 400 pages. Its clear that i haven't read it yet however i want to give a summary of my experience by reading a few pages of this book. First of all, its a long read and therefore it demands time and patience. The most significant part of this book is that it has got a historical blend in it and so it needs to be read in that historical context. No doubt, its a work of fiction. I would prefer to read it slowly, not in a hurry to finish it up, so that...
