Title: Mikhail Bulgakov: Diaries and Selected ...
Publisher: Alma Books, Surrey
Publication Date: 2013
Edition: First Printing of the First UK Edition.
A Fine tight unread copy in a Fine dust jacket. The career of Mikhail Bulgakov, the author of Master and MargaritaŚnow regarded as one of the masterpieces of 20th-century literatureŚwas characterized by a constant and largely unsuccessful struggle against state censorship. This suppression did not only apply to his art: in 1926 his personal diary was seized by the authorities. From then on he confined his thoughts to letters to his friends and family, as well as to public figures such as Stalin and his fellow Soviet writer Gorky, while also encouraging his wife Yelena to keep a diary, with many entries influenced or even dictated by him. This selection from the diaries and letters of the Bulgakovs provides an insightful glimpse into a fascinating period of Russian history and literature, telling the tragic tale of the fate of an artist under a totalitarian regime.
