Radio programme on The Master and Margarita

February 2, 2015

Today we added to this website a page on which you can listen to a radio programme on The Master and Margarita. It has been broadcast last week.

Corey Flintoff is the international correspondent of the radio station NPR, and he is based in Moscow. His journalism career has taken him to more than 50 countries, most recently to cover the civil war in Libya, the revolution in Egypt and the war in Afghanistan.

In this programme from January 21, 2015, Flintoff comments The Master and Margarita. He states that the novel's popularity endures. He spoke with Edythe Haber, an expert on Bulgakov at Harvard's Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies, who says that there seem to be parallels everywhere between Bulgakov's Soviet characters and the functionaries of today's Russia. Furthermore, we can hear the voice of Irina Gorpenko, who introduces the characters of the novel with theatrical flair.
