What the community says about The Master and Margarita
- "As an allegory, The Master and Margarita stands apart from much of the literature written during this time period. In this exposition, Bulgakov takes us inside the mind of the characters, and let's us experience the zeitgeist of Moscow in the 1930's. A true samizdat, the book was a cultural touchstone to those living under Stalin's regime, and a most important expression of human creativity."
- "This novel tosses wildly between the real, a fantasy, and a deeper dive into Christianity and the human condition as a whole. I didn't like it, but I understand what makes it a worthwhile literary venture. Particularly, I enjoyed the witch character. It wasn't for me, but I'd recommend it anyway."
