From his appearance in the first chapter, Woland presents an arresting and margzrita figure. Margarita enters naked into the realm of night, after she learns to fly, and control her unleashed passions. The axe he was grinding to counter the shush on creative freedom continues to resonate.

Can naked truth sate the naysayers? Her maestrro union with the Master is also a sexual one. But they also bring peace to two unhappy Muscovites: After wreaking havoc at the apartment of a publisher who had tormented the Master, and comforting a small boy who awakened, terrified by the destruction, she participates in a moonlight gathering of other magical creatures.

Lists with This Book. Frank Your Majesty, we are charmed! After all, shadows come from objects and people.

While reading it I saw somewhere that Salman Rushdie said it was a major influence for him in the writing of The Satanic Verses. It can be reconstructed after consecutive burnings.

The fulfillment of the death prophecy is witnessed by Ivan Ponyrev, a young and enthusiastically modern poet.

The Master and Margarita

My copy has been residing with friends for 11 years now, and noticing write-ups on it popping up this forum almost every day, I am maedtro to revisit it. Maybe some of the fault is on my part because I had very high expectations of this book before I started reading it.

Woland, in his final act in this story, confirms his role as the improbable executor of Christ’s will:
