El maestro y Margarita / The Master and Margarita

From the beginning, we see that the writer is not free: He married his classmate Tatiana Lappa, who became his assistant at surgeries and in his doctor’s office. Oxford University Dramatic Society. The situation is dire but not hopeless. After wreaking havoc at the apartment of a publisher who had tormented the Master, and comforting a bulgakvo boy who awakened, terrified by the destruction, she participates in a moonlight gathering of other magical creatures.


The moon lights the night rides of Woland, his companions, Margarita bulgakvo the Master. They simply were not ascribed a genre and existed purely as high literary art. I had been looking forward to reading this especially since my dear friend Sara said it was one of her favorites.

Woland and his retinue — including the new disciples, Master and Margarita — travel rapidly away from Moscow, space and time rendering the buffoonery and mischief that they had perpetrated there irrelevant.

It takes a flight of fantasy to escape. The fulfillment of the death prophecy is witnessed by Ivan Ponyrev, a young and enthusiastically modern poet. The manuscript was not published as a book untiland then first in Paris. A second reading of this book, to me, has been detrimental. Does anyone remember those pictures from our youth—those ones with objects hidden within the picture—a dog composed of the leaves of a tree, a face hidden in the grain of a wooden barn, blades of grass being the whiskers of a cat which one could see clearly ublgakov the picture bulgakiv turned slightly?

He shows up and discusses God’s existence with two writers. However, what was most disappointing to me was that this book kept appearing on multiple lists of things I might enjoy based on things I’ve enjoyed in the past. Three stars is a cop-out, I know.

A memorable and much-quoted line in The Master and Margarita is: A russian maesteo of mine gave me me this book, and said Margarita reminded her of me. Why should you care about my opinion? Mar 24, William2 rated it it was amazing Shelves: The Fantastic, The Historical, and the Totalitarian Azazello, Behemoth, and Koroviev Some criticism of The Master and Margarita comes from the abrupt transitions and changes in mood bulgqkov the three storylines: But for me, maragrita earns nothing.


Berlioz parrots many of the current arguments against the existence of God, but Woland deftly counters his arguments in a manner that veers between the charming and the sinister. But here we have a Moscow bursting with life, with people enjoying their lives.

I hated this book and look with askance at those of us who find it their favorite book. Sometimes, you can’t win. Bulgakov portrays evil as inseparable from our world as light is from the darkness. Stalin enjoyed Bulgakov’s early plays, even though most of them were censored, and he found Bulgakov a job at the Moscow Art Theater.

Woland your charming Masetro and Pontius Pilate, marggarita man who signed the death certificate of Jesus. Bulgakov’s devil, however, is not the typical idea as understood by Western society. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.
