The Master and Margarita

by Mikhail Bulgakov, 1966

The Master and Margarita presents three interlaced lines of action, which are integrated and are mutually enlightening: a visit by Satan to Moscow, a Faustian love story of a writer and his Margarita, and Pilate's condemnation of Jesus to execution. The Moscow and Jerusalem episodes have parallels, and the love story connects the two.
