Collectivisation saw major inroads into personal and creative freedom, while the rest of the world looked on, not without its own problems, moving towards a second great war. The Materialist conception of History predicted and dictated that Socialism would one day overthrow Capitalism in each country. Whatever the personal cost, it takes an act of the imagination, an act of fantasy to defy a Totalitarian State.

Review : "My favorite novel--it's just the greatest explosion of imagination, craziness, satire, humor, and heart. It has nestled there ever since, radiating with beauty and wonder, irony and horror.
A great work. It is a concerto played simultaneously on the organ, the bagpipes, and a pennywhistle, while someone sets off fireworks between the players' feet. The Master and Margarita stands squarely in the great Gogolesque tradition of satiric narrative. Brilliantly flamboyant and outrageous. One of those novels that, even in translation, make one feel that not one word could have been written differently. Margarita has too many achievements to list--for one thing, a plot scudding with action and suspense, not exactly a hallmark of Russian literature.
This luminous translation [is] distinguished by not only the stylistic elegance that has become a hallmark of Pevear and Volokhonsky translations but also a supreme ear for the sound and meaning of Soviet life.
It's time for The Master and Margarita to rise to its rightful place in the canon of great world literature. As literature, it will live forever. Pevear, a native of Boston, and Volokhonsky, of St. Petersburg, are married and live in Paris.
