Master and Margarita- A great novel by Mikhail Bulgakov The Master and Margarita (Russian: Ма́стер и Маргари́та) is a novel by.
History[ edit ] Mikhail Bulgakov was a playwright and author.
He started writing the novel in , but burned the first manuscript in , as he could not see a future as a writer in the Soviet Union at a time of widespread political repression.
In the early s Bulgakov had visited an editorial meeting of an atheistic-propaganda journal. He is believed to have drawn from this to create the Walpurgis Night ball of the novel. He wrote another four versions.
When Bulgakov stopped writing four weeks before his death in , the novel had some unfinished sentences and loose ends. A censored version, with about 12 percent of the text removed and more changed, was first published in Moskva magazine no. In , the publisher Posev Frankfurt printed a version produced with the aid of these inserts.
In the Soviet Union, the novel was first published in book form in Estonian in with some passages edited out.
The first complete version, prepared by Anna Sahakyants, was published in Russian by Khudozhestvennaya Literatura in This was based on Bulgakov's last version, as proofread by the publisher. This version remained the canonical edition until The last version, based on all available manuscripts, was prepared by Lidiya Yanovskaya. Plot summary[ edit ] The novel alternates between two settings.
The first is Moscow during the s, where Satan appears at the Patriarch Ponds in the guise of "Professor Woland ", a mysterious gentleman and "magician" of uncertain origin. He arrives with a retinue that includes the grotesquely dressed valet Koroviev; the mischievous, gun-happy, fast-talking black cat Behemoth ; the fanged hitman Azazello; and the female vampire Hella. The association is made up of corrupt social climbers and their women wives and mistresses alike , bureaucrats, profiteers, and, more generally, skeptics of the human spirit.

The second setting is the Jerusalem of Pontius Pilate , described by Woland in his conversations with Berlioz and later reflected in the Master's novel. This part of the novel concerns Pontius Pilate's trial of Yeshua Ha-Notsri Jesus of Nazareth , his recognition of an affinity with, and spiritual need for, Yeshua, and his reluctant but resigned submission to Yeshua's execution.
Part one of the novel opens with a direct confrontation between Berlioz, the atheistic head of the literary bureaucracy, and an urbane foreign gentleman Woland , who defends belief and reveals his prophetic powers in a deadpan prediction that Berlioz will die later that evening. Berlioz brushes off the prophecy of his death as the ravings of a madman, but dies pages later in the novel, in the exact manner described by Professor Woland.
Bulgakov – Master and Margarita
The fulfillment of the death prophecy is witnessed by Ivan Ponyrev, a young and enthusiastically modern poet. He writes poems under the alias Bezdomny "homeless".
His futile attempts to capture the "gang", while warning of their evil and mysterious nature, lands Ponyrev in a lunatic asylum. There, he's introduced to the Master, an embittered author. The rejection of his historical novel about Pontius Pilate and Christ has led the Master to such despair, that he burned his manuscript and turned his back on the world, including his devoted lover, Margarita.
Major episodes in the novel's first half include a satirical portrait of both the Massolit and their Griboyedov house; Satan's magic show at a variety theatre, satirizing the vanity, greed, and gullibility of the new elite; and Woland and his retinue taking over the late Berlioz's apartment for their own use.
Apartments were at a premium in Moscow and were controlled by the state's elite. Bulgakov referred to his own apartment as one of the settings in the Moscow section of the novel.
Part two of the novel introduces Margarita, the Master's mistress. She refuses to despair over her lover or his work. She is invited to the Devil's midnight ball, where Woland offers her the chance to become a witch with supernatural powers.
This takes place the night of Good Friday. This is the time of the spring full moon, as it was traditionally when Christ's fate was affirmed by Pontius Pilate, sending him to be crucified in Jerusalem. The Master's novel also covers this event. All three events in the novel are linked by this.
Margarita enters naked into the realm of night, after she learns to fly, and control her unleashed passions. She takes violent revenge on the literary bureaucrats who had condemned her beloved to despair.

He is believed to have drawn from this to create the Walpurgis Night ball of the novel. She takes violent revenge on the literary bureaucrats who had condemned her beloved to despair.
Moscow is depicted at the End of Time, and the narrative allows for a concomitant omnitemporal knowledge. Satan grants her first wish and offers her another, saying that Margarita's first wish was unrelated to her own desires. There is no way to cure his disease except Margarita gives her own soul to master.
He writes poems under the alias Bezdomny "homeless". The Karpelson translation, even when republished in the UK by Wordsworth, has not been Anglicised, and retains North American spellings and idioms.
Their recurring anxieties epitomize the two opposing subject positions I have been describing:
