A trip to Kiev cannot be complete without a little Bulgakov A museum dedicated to the master lies just off of St Andrew s Descent a cobblestone street passing from St Sophia s cathedral down to the Dneiper The museum is contained in House No 13 where at one time Mikhail Bulgakov and his family lived While The White Guard is not as widely known as The Master and Margarita which Salman Rushdie drew upon heavily for Midnight s Children it provides a better sense of Ukraine and particularly KievHouse No 13 in Kiev provides the place while 1918 and Ukrainian civil war provides the setting The story is about the survival of the Turbin family in the midst of this upheaval Bulgakov s writing is transcendentFor many years before her death in the house at No 13 St Alexei s Hill little Elena Alexei the eldest and baby Nikolka had grown up in the warmth of the tiled stove that burned in the dining room How often they had followed the story of Peter the Great in Holland The Shipwright of Saardam portrayed on its glowing hot dutch tiles how often the clock had played its gavotte and always towards the end of December there had been a smell of pine needles and candles burning on evergreen branchesBut clocks are fortunately uite immortal as immortal as the Shipwright of Saardam and however bad the times might be the tiled Dutch stove like a rock of wisdom was always there to radiate life and warmth p10The tiled stove upon which many political and apolitical messages are written is nearly a character in its own right The life it gives is not only comfort but humor tooThen printed on the stove in capitals in Nikolka s handI herby forbid the scribbling of nonsense on this stove Any comrade found guilty of doing so will be shot and deprived of civil rights Signed Abraham GoldblattLadies Gentlemen s and Women s TailorCommissar Podol District Committee30th January 1918Bulgakov s mastery of these slices of life make this an ideal book for reading while in Kiev The city comes alive with a personality that might otherwise have gone unnoticed Reading how things were while seeing how things are makes both the past and the present strikingThis book has not only history but action too The stakes are incredibly high Characters are shot they are robbed characters live they die The politics of the novel provide a roiling backdrop though I do not think politics is the point The intersection of politics and daily life particularly when politics has brought war is a fascinating topic and one that Bulgakov explores but never in a heavy handed manner The political is merely backdrop to the personalSomething had settled in Alexei s chest like a stone and he whistled as he breathed drawing in through bared teeth a sticky thin stream of air that barely penetrated to his lungs He had long ago lost consciousness and neither saw nor understood what was going on around him Elena stood and looked The professor took her by the arm and whispered Go now Elena Vasilievna we ll do all there is to do Elena obeyed and went out But the professor did not do anything p 275This moment to me was perfect Bulgakov has captured the essence of this type of situation The only thing the professor could do for Alexei was to reassure ElenaBulgakov brilliantly sketches even minor characters Outside of House No 13 a war is raging Several family members are involved and in this way the reader is provided a view of the wider world and the characters that inhabit it Perhaps my favorite is this troubling scene in which the janitor drafted into service as coroner is helping Nikolka the younger brother find Colonel Nais Turs Nikolka s fallen comrade in armsMoving carefully in order not to slip on the floor Fyodor grasped Nais Turs by the head and pulled hard A flat chested broad hipped woman was lying face down across Nai s stomach There was a cheap little comb in the hair at the back of her neck glittering dully like a fragment of glass Without stopping what he was doing Fyodor deftly pulled it out dropped it into the pocket of his apron and gripped NaiTurs under the armpits As it was pulled out of the pile his head lolled back his sharp unshaven chin pointed upwards and one arm slipped from the janitor s grasp p271Bulgakov keeps the plot taut and the reader engaged This book reuires little suspension of disbelief The White Guard is realist unlike the much fanciful The Master and Margarita Bulgakov does however add a touch of the supernatural And while the book is political enough to have been suppressed by Stalin the uestion of which of the three sides fighting the war is right is never really posed much less answered The interesting uestions all pertain to the individual and to a family trying to survive a civil war The primary loyalties are personal which in Ukraine as elsewhere reflects reality The book is ambivalent toward political loyalties and the revolutions borne of having putting those loyalties before the personal The author as surely as the characters must have had little enthusiasm for revolutionary politicsIn the end perhaps the highest praise I can give is that it would be difficult to read The White Guard without becoming attached to the Turbin family Perhaps this than any overt politics is why the novel was banned in the Stalinist Soviet Union Necessitate Past Imperfect Future Conditional #1 of the

free read × eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ó Mikhail Bulgakov Белая гвардия summary Ä 8 Drawing closely on Bulgakov's personal experiences of the horrors of civil war as a young doctor The White Guard takes place in K. This heavy volume included two works The White Guard and Theatrical Novel Notes of a DeceasedBulgakov s fate seemed to be governed by the same mixture of satire fantasy and tragedy that is the hallmark of his entire work A trained doctor aka Chekhov after he abandoned his medicine career in 1920 to devote entirely to writing he joined the theater world and his first play put on stage The Days of the Turbins adaptation of the novel The White Guard has received a great success paradoxically becoming Stalin s favourite play The obvious sympathy for the White officers made that the play to be eventually banned so from 1929 is no longer published any book nor is played any of his new plays or previous ones Leading an existence to the limit of survival Bulgakov felt forced to send to the dictator Stalin a petition then also in a letter to the Soviet government to talk about the mental imbalance to which an artist is subjected to when his living existence is threatened The letter remained famous both as a model of the writer s assumed dissidence and its unexpected effects Although following a direct phone call from Stalin Bulgakov is re employed at the theater yet all his works remained unpublished writing in the last decade of his life with frenzy afraid he will not finish the novel The Master and Margarita for which the latest corrections he made in 1940 on the deathbed blind dictating to his wife Maria Sergeevna who apparently inspired the character of MargaretThe White Guard is a work portraying a historical reality The focus is on the Whites normally depicted in Soviet literature as evil reactionaries who are nonetheless ordinary human beings with their own problems concerns and ideals The novel same as its stage adaptation The Days of the Turbins had an extremely complex history Written between 22 24 and receiving numerous substantial revisions later it was originally conceived as the first volume of a trilogy portraying the entire sweep of the post revolutionary Civil War from a number of different points of view Although the first and only volume was criticized for showing events from the viewpoints of the Whites the third volume would apparently have given the perspective of the Communists Many chapters of the novel were published separately in literary journals as they appeared The ending of the novel the seuence of dreams never appeared because the journal it was due to be printed in was shut down by official order precisely because it was publishing such material as Bulgakov s The novel only appeared complete in Russian having been proofread by the author in 1929 in Paris The background is the Civil War in Kiev after the Bolshevik Revolution The novel starts with December 1918 and ends in February 1919 and it portrays a series of conflicting events happening during the confrontations between the three main armed forces WhitesTsarist Empire Ukrainian Nationalists and BolsheviksCommunists that were trying to dispute and gain the power and authority of the City aka Kiev and conseuently of the Country aka UkraineAs for the major protagonists the novel unfolds the story of the Turbins a noble but now in poverty family broadly moderate Tsarists in their view and therefore anti Bolsheviks but being ethnically Russian have no sympathy with the Ukrainian Nationalists either and so end up fighting for the White Guards At the beginning of the novel apparently we are still in the world of the old Russia with artistic and elegant furniture dating from the Tsarist era there is a piano books and high uality pictures on the walls There is the Turbins warm flat in which the family can take refuge from the events outside however the general atmosphere is nonetheless of fear for the future and great apprehension at the world collapsing The novel ends with a series of sinister apocalyptic dreams which foresee the catastrophe for the society as a whole and of family as its cell of unity Maybe I was being drifted a bit too far away but for a massive part of the novel I felt like re watching the movie The Barber of Siberia released in 1998 and directed by Nikita Mikhalkov Needless to say that I had to stop my flowing reading for a while and went on you tube to watch some couples of scenes from the movie Nostalgia showered on me recalling that I have watched it first time in a Moscow cinema 20 years ago directly in its Russian talking version which sadly I didn t understand much but then I watched the English version and everything turned to pure light Additionally most critics attacked it furiously for various reasons but I just loved it I still love it The only thing is that in the movie opening with the Tsarist atmosphere of 1885 there is no openly engaged war at least not as the one to break up starting with the WW1 continuing with the 1917 Bolsheviks revolutions the Civil War and then Stalin dictatorshipSurprisingly for such a big novel normally it would have taken me some good days I felt in a rush to read it through As a matter of fact I found myself sympathizing with the Turbins the two brothers and sister even if it doesn t necessarily mean that I was in some partial agreement with the actions that they felt compelled to do I enjoyed the story in its real dramatic and tragic sense I felt that Bulgakov really loved his characters despite their weaknesses In a way it can be that the author himself identified with the overall story and it can be interpreted on a different layer as a autobiographyA Theatrical Novel Notes of a Deceased or in other versions Black Snow or White SnowThis is a very interesting piece of text about the theatre and life within theatre It is regarded as a strong satire on events in the Soviet theatre in November 1936 after Bulgakov eventually resigned from the management of MHAT Moscow Arts Academic Theatre and his play Moliere was vigorously attacked by the Communists and rejected from being put on stage On a different angle if we follow just the narrative thread Theatrical Novel can be seen as the story of the destiny of White Guard and its play adaptation The Days of the Turbins in other words it s the story of a storyIt starts with a short introduction allegedly by an author who has found a manuscript written by a so called theatrical personage who has committed suicide The style is very direct and harsh Bulgakov takes a swipe at censorship and the vicious and abject authorities of the theatre world dealing savagely with the reputations of those people that lead the theatre who are seen as some tyrannical figures who crush the individuality and flair of writers and actors in the plays they are directingThe manuscript ends inconclusively with the dead writer still proclaiming his wonder at the nature of theatre itself despite its intrigues and frustrations the initial author who has found the manuscript does not reappear and it s uncertain whether the point is that the theatrical figure left his memories uncompleted or whether in fact Bulgakov failed to finish his original project It leaves room to imagine some possible scenarios for those who love to use their imagination generosity

free read × eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ó Mikhail Bulgakov Белая гвардия summary Ä 8 Iev 1918 a time of turmoil and suffocating uncertainty as the Bolsheviks Socialists and Germans fight for control of the city It. I wasn t sure if Bulgakov s first novel described as a historical novel about the fortunes of the city of Kiev in the year 1918 as the repercussions of the Russian revolution and the tail end of the first world war play out would be as good as his satirical masterpieces The Master And Margarita and Black Snow It certainly is Bulgakov was a literary genius that s the only conclusion I can draw Not only does he maintain complete control over a narrative that segues constantly from the panoramic to the personal he keeps finding memorable motifs and metaphors to bring his tale to life There is an entire section where he describes people s expressions and states of minds in terms of clock hand positions It seems like a subjective potentially opaue conceit but Bulgakov makes it work brilliantly A good deal of his tale is told through dreams again something potentially confusing and tedious that he does incredibly well His talent for invoking the truly fantastic was evident in The Master as was his facility with conjuring the bad numinous Here in an early vision of heaven he brings us face to face with an eually convincing vision of divinity both comforting and chilling There are numerous bravura scenes of crowds and action and of the thoughts and experiences of a his focus characters This novel is also amazingly well structured casting out a bewildering array of narrative threads that are all woven together into a tight immaculate narrative tapestry The novel ends with a virtuoso display of oneiric head hopping which culminates in a passage which shows where the true strength of this novel lies not in its many technical merits and literary flourishes amazing though they are but in its strong sense of the pathos of human destiny
