Mikhail Bulgakov ½ 1 SUMMARY

SUMMARY Í Белая гвардия Drawing closely on Bulgakov's personal experiences of the horrors of civil war as a young doctor The White Guard takes place in K. After graduating from Kiev University Mikhail Bulgakov would go on to decide his future lie in literature rather than practicing as a doctor during which he witnessed the horrors of the Russian civil war Bothered though by the censors and political unrest Bulgakov would write to Stalin asking to be allowed to emigrate if he couldn t make a living as a writer in the USSR And the word goes Stalin actually phoned him up offering a job in the Moscow Arts Theatre instead Similar to that of revolutionary writer Victor Serge Bulgakov s work only saw the light of day posthumously Safe to say thank god it didNot as well known as his most recognizable The Master and Margarita The White guard is certainly closer to non fiction and built on Bulgakov s own experiences during the turmoil and unpredictability of conflict The story takes place in a snow covered Kiev 1918 turning the spotlight on the once wealthy Turbin family After their mother passes away the three children of doctor Alexei the oldest Elena twenty four and seventeen year old Nikolka face up the fact of a new regime as Bolsheviks Socialists and Germans fight for total control over the city Elena s husband Captain Talberg would leave for battle as the household enters a fragile and worrying timeThe city itself is vivid to the eyes as confusion grows on the streets as to who is fighting with who through all it s unorganized chaos Bulgakov does a grand job of showing just that the chaosNothing is ever perceived clear as to what is actually going on in terms of leadershipBulgakov asserted that Kiev changed hands some 14 times in little over a year and could have written an epic Tolstoyish novel that covers ground but this is of a snapshot a panoramic view moving from character to character at regular intervals and it s length pleased me fully The departing German Imperial Army lead by the Hetman of Ukraine are replaced by opportunist leader Petlyura s supposed rise to power whilst the Ukrainian nationalist movement along with the The White Guard supporters of the Tsar jostle in the background Both brothers Alexei and Nikolka are White Guard officers who place their lives in danger as change takes shape There is no doubt Bulgakov pokes fun at both Petlyura and Hetman for their weak inabilities and the sheer waste of life youth and energy sacrificed in fighting And Bulgakov seems to foresee tribulations yet to come The novel is very military Regarding the narrative not all the time but when things get going in terns of the different forces involved Bulgakov clearly knows his stuff corruption in rife anti Semitism is high and the various armies struggle with personnel and supplies during some seriously cold weather But the household of the Turbins still remains central to the story which provides the humane touch although it doesn t feature as often during the middle third Elena waits for news on husband and one of the brothers who failed to return home whilst friends of the family come and go each with their own problemsThe Turbins do side with Tsar but there isn t any reel political stance from Bulgakov s viewpoint as normal life is trying to continue people get up for work mingle out shopping kids play out in the snow little realizing what s happening around them and folk gather to talk rumours that spread like wildfire There are gaps in between the conflict where Bulgakov clearly shows his love for Kiev the ancient cathedral sits graceful the huge statue of Saint Vladimir overlooks the city holding aloft the cross whilst a blanket of snow wistfully settles on the homes and buildings below creating a whiteness through dark times Bulgakov presents a glimpse of the fear confusion and death that faced so many and he does it exceptionally wellThe snow would melt the grass would grow and the sun would rise to dry the blood of battlebut sadly one hundred years on not much has changed divided territories are still the recipe for disaster where loved ones will not be returning to loves ones and all for what Resist Not Evil known as his most recognizable The Master and Margarita The White guard is certainly closer to non fiction and built on
