While there are flaws and imperfections - Bulgakov himself seems to have almost as much difficulty in following the improbable twists and turns as his readers - it's a masterpiece of imagination.

The following is a bibliography of the works of Mikhail Bulgakov in English and Russian. The Master and Margarita. translated by Mirra Ginsburg, New York: Grove Press, 1967, 1995. translated by Michael Glenny, London: Harvill, 1967; New York: Harper & Row, 1967; with introduction by Simon Franklin, New York: Knopf, 1992; London: Everyman's Library, 1992.

Mikhail Bulgakov worked on this luminous book throughout one of the darkest decades of the century. Another twenty-six years had to pass before events bore out that belief and The Master and Margarita, by what seems a surprising oversight in Soviet literary politics, finally appeared in print. His last revisions were dictated to his wife a few weeks before his death in 1940 at the age of forty-nine. For him, there was never any question of publishing the novel. The effect was electrifying. The monthly magazine Moskva, otherwise a rather cautious and quiet publication, carried the first part of The Master and Margarita in its November 1966 issue.

The Master and Margarita book. Bulgakov describes a world where good and evil powers work together to provide some justice and balance in our lives, in spite of the thoughtless and cruel ways that humans behave. As Woland tells Margarita at one point, Everything will be made right, that is what the world is built on. The true evil in The Master and Margarita does not rise from Hell, but instead comes from the pettiness and greed of flawed, small-minded humans. The Master and Margarita: Responsibility to Art.

by Mikhail Bulgakov · Hugh Aplin · Doris Lessing · Михаил Булгаков. The White Guard is less famous than Mikhail Bulgakov's comic hit, The Master and Margarita, but it is a lovely book, though completely different in tone. It is set in Kiev during the Russian revolution and tells the story of the Turbin family and the war'.

Mikhail Bulgakov, Hugh Aplin. Russia's literary world is shaken to its foundations when a mysterious gentleman - a professor of black magic - arrives in Moscow, accompanied by a bizarre retinue of servants. But the Devil's mission quickly becomes entangled with the fate of the Master - a man who has turned his back on his former life and taken refuge in a lunatic asylum - and his past lover, Margarita.

A mysterious stranger appears in a Moscow park. Soon he and his retinue have astonished the locals with the magic show to end all magic shows. But why are they really here, and what has it got to do with the beautiful Margarita, or her lover, the Master, a silenced writer? A carnival for the senses and a diabolical extravaganza.
  • This is a book that has it all: unbridled imagination, devastating black humor, breathtaking suspense, romantic poetry and even unyielding social commentary. It's a classic attack on the Soviet system, but it goes beyond and takes a hard, uncompromising look at the human condition. It has survived the collapse of the Soviet Union and will certainly go on to enter the Russian pantheon of classics, along with Tolstoy, Gogol and Dostoievsky. A must read!

  • This quirky, surrealistic book, an example of magic realism "avant la lettre" provoked hostile reactions from the authorities. It deals with subjects considered taboo under the Soviet regime. While there are flaws and imperfections - Bulgakov himself seems to have almost as much difficulty in following the improbable twists and turns as his readers - it's a masterpiece of imagination. Was Terry Pratchett influenced by this writer?

  • A decent translation of this classic, not as good as the Dutch translation (Fondse & Prins)

  • I really liked this book the first time I read it, and I really liked it a lot this time as well. The book is really well written, and is a fun read.That assessment of the book does not change. It is really a good book to read. There are also a lot of allusions that have been made in the book, and I learned (and forgot) a lot, while researching the references in the book.

    During my first reading, I read a lot into the book, about the fundamental nature of Man, God and the Devil. The Devil does indeed walk amongst us, along paths unknown to us, and the Devil's ways are indeed mysterious.

    This time, I read more about human nature, and about how the Devil pokes fun of our stuffy pompous nature. I read more into the fragile fabric of human society than into the struggle between man and God.

    The Kindle Edition is well formatted, and easy to read.

    Either way, it's a fun read!

  • Probably one of the best books I've read in a while. I never heard of this until recently but the writing and descriptions bring to life everything and the translation is fantastic.

  • Just love all Bulgakov. My favorite modern Russian author.

  • I can't believe I waited this long to read this book! perfect book and can be applied to many situations in life. The way the government is in this book is pretty much applicable to any country, any time! great book!

  • My favorite book so I cannot be objective, I love it and read it many times and will in the future.
