In plina epoca stalinista, in care ratiunea exclude marhareta interventie a supranaturalului, Moscova e rascolita de ispravile unui magician si ale acolitilor sai, un motan negru si-un personaj ciudat, cu pincenez, care-i pedepsesc pe moscoviti pentru pacatele ascunse.

Maestrul și Margareta
Blin There once was a book praised as boff That caused others to pan it and scoff So who wrote this thing Whence sentiments swing? Blind fools in their presence would cower. And smug Party folks Were easy to hoax. No tears, though, when bureaucrats sour. In Moscow amidst the commotion We realize a somewhat strange notion: The hope is that art survives might.
And how does good shine without bad? Is bad the worst trait to be had? The group which we all thank Kris and Mary for running so well has been great for providing discussions and links to help interpret the symbols, themes and historical context. But this, too, makes original thoughts about it hard to come by.
Anyway, this is my justification for punting, and instead trying perhaps too hard just to be different. I will say that I never really lost myself in the story nor cared about the thinly drawn characters.
The greater pleasure was in trying to figure out the different elements of the allegory, what the broader questions were, and how Stalinist oppression may have driven it.
The axe he was grinding to counter the shush on creative freedom continues to resonate. What does the devil Woland represent? Is there a religious angle? What about moral judgment; free will vs. Others have done a much better job addressing the main themes: As an example of his character, he tried cheating at chess. Three stars is a cop-out, I know. I was caught between extremes. The story and characters failed to draw me in, but it was an interesting exercise in interpretation.

The devil be told, I am still unable contemplate whether this is a work of utter genius or the ramblings of a complete nutcase!. At times it felt all over the place, throwing to much madness at you all at once, but it somehow manages to get away with, though I still don’t know why.
Maestrul si Margareta Book Discussion
Two things I do know for sure, Bulgakov certainly had one hell of an imagination and this will have to be read again, not necessarily to try and make more sense of it all but just for the sheer experience of being taken on a devilishly wild ride around Moscow and beyond.

On the one hand it is full of scenes and ideas that are unquestionably intriguing and thought-provoking, on the other maesttrul were significant parts of it that I found, not bad, but certainly less than compelling and these latter segments made up the bulk of the first part of the novel.
It wasn’t until the commencement of Part Two that I felt as though things were beginning to gel and the ultimate story began to show its head. What we do have is still very compelling as three main plotlines interweave and ultimately come together: Woland and his retinue are easily the most colourful characters in the story and include a giant talking black cat, a checker-suited comic sorcerer, a red-haired and fanged assassin-butler, and a sultry vampiress-witch.
One of the most intriguing aspects of this maesyrul as presented by Bulgakov is that in many ways he is analogous to the totalitarian State, for who else can make people vanish without a trace, plant ‘evidence’ to frame the innocent and not so innocent mzrgareta, and instill in all and sundry an instinctual hatred mingled with terror?
Ultimately Woland comes across much more as a force of chaos than of pure evil and he even seems to have some kind of relationship with the powers of light that goes beyond the adversarial.
Yet enough hints are dropped to imply that there really is something to this strange man, though we are never told exactly what that is. In the end the only supernatural maeetrul evident in the story is the diabolic or at least chaotic and one is left wondering where is God? No easy answer is provided, though Bulgakov does not seem to imply a nihilistic answer to this and goes so far as to provide Woland with some distinctly un-Satanic things to say about the world that are meant to provide hope even in the face of suffering and adversity: Everything will be made right, that is what the world is built on.
The unnamed Master is interesting in the way he displays both elements of power he is very self-possessed and knowledgeable as opposed to his asylum-mate Ivan’s almost manic temperament and complete lack of understandingbut he also seems strangely passive at the same time.
I like him, but I’m not quite sure why and I mestrul that he more or less remained something of a cipher throughout the novel.
Margarita, on the other hand, is vivid and full of life. Her main concern may be to find her lover, but she is very active in pursuing this end and lets nothing stand in her way. She also displays a touching humanity in the face of the suffering of others. One other character, the poet Ivan Nikolayevich Ponyryov, seems poised to play a major role in the maesfrul when we first meet him and shares many thematic commonalities with other characters in the text, but little seems to come of this, though this may again have been margarwta result of the unfinished nature of the text.
In the end I was left with a heck of a lot of questions. Why did Woland really come to Moscow in the first place? Why did he gravitate to the personal story of the Master and Margarita? How is first century Jerusalem like early 20th century Moscow?
How is Woland like Pilate? Some of these questions get answers of a kind, while others are left purely to our imagination. In the end this novel certainly leaves one with much food for thought. View all 20 comments.

Maybe I missed the point. View all 5 comments. Mikhail Bulgakov passed away shortly after Stalin’s Great Purge; it occurred from about to and was intended to rid the Soviet Union of traitors, subversive elements, and most importantly, enemies of Stalin.
Bulgakov’s relationship with Stalin, however, was more mawstrul less safe. Stalin enjoyed Bulgakov’s early plays, even thou Mikhail Bulgakov passed away shortly after Stalin’s Great Purge; it occurred from about to and was intended to rid the Soviet Union of traitors, subversive elements, and most importantly, enemies of Stalin. Stalin enjoyed Bulgakov’s early plays, even though most of them were censored, and he found Bulgakov a job at the Moscow Art Theater.
This position maesteul to be unpleasant and unfulfilling. In he asked Stalin for permission to emigrate, but was denied because Stalin felt that a Soviet writer should never leave his homeland.
Of course, Stalin probably had sadistic reasons as well. Much like Joseph Goebbels, Stalin wanted to control Soviet art, ensuring that it all represented loyalty and favor to the State.
Much of Bulgakov’s unhappiness stemmed from his contempt for Stalin’s regime, but if he tried to emigrate he would be murdered. With this in mind he lived his life as many did at that time, as a sort of free political prisoner, living a life of quiet desperation, hoping that in the end, literature or art would prove to be the final salvation in life.
