Illustration by Vasily Yashkevich

I invite you to join us online this fall to read and discuss prose works by Mikhail Bulgakov (1891 – 1940). Bulgakov is a master of Soviet literature whose unique inventiveness and bold imagination profoundly influenced the development of ‘magic realism’ in the West. We will explore the Moscow period of Bulgakov’s life when most of his masterpieces were written, including two of his satirical novellas from the 1920’s, The Fatal Eggs and Heart of a Dog, and his masterpiece The Master and Margarita.

Eight weekly, two-hour sessions are planned, starting on Saturday, September 25, 2021 and ending on Saturday, November 13, 2021. Click here for the complete seminar description, including the reading assignments and required texts.
