Comments:
Marilace
A lesser known work by Bulgakov, which gets to many of the key issues that face Kiev, especially today: clash of philosophies, clash of cultures, the vacuum of power within a society that has learned to sell itself out for short term individual gain and the promise of greener grasses. Much of the story is based on actual events and places around the taking of Kiev by the Communists in the followup to the Russian Revolution, though twisted in a very Bulgakov way. Bulgakov has a strong sense of the finer parts of czarist (white) culture vs. the rougher parts of communist (red) culture, all visualized in the bloody path poured upon the snow by the various fighting parties (there are at least three, sound familiar?).

But regardless of Bulgakov's clear preference for things czarist, White Guard was (reportedly) a favorite play of Stalin, who found an appreciation for the cinematic characteristics of Bulgakov's story-telling.

Best read over a snowy weekend.

This translation of Mikhail Bulgakov's masterpiece should be on the shelf of any true claimant of literary works of art. Attention to detail, rich descriptions of life in and around Kiev, during another violent time in Ukraine's history. The pages of this tome are to be savored, like a fine wine. The time between the end of WWI, and the beginning of the Russian Revolution, are indeed requisites for any serious student of history. A jewel among books of a similar genre.

I have been looking for a copy of Bulgakov's "The White Guard" since I visited his home, No. 13, on the street descending to the Lavra in Kiev, when I visited the city in 1999. Finally took the time to purchase a copy after reading the article about Bulgakov in "Russian Life" magazine, May/June 2016, pp. 30-36. Excellent view of White Russian city in the midst of the Ukraine.

A facinating and enjoyable book by a master who briliantly brings to life this chaotic time in Ukrainian and Russian history in 1918/19 and how the fates of one anti communist family mirrored the wider tragedy

Jarortr
The 1920s can be lost years in Russian history, especially in areas outside of Moscow or Petersburg. Bulgakov's novel effectively communicates the turmoil and confusion of 1920s Ukraine for middle class and upper middle class families. You may need to read about some of the historical figures to better understand the events, but you will definitely understand the emotions of the time regardless.

I liked this book a lot, however, I'm not sure that it is the best translation since some of the sentences were incomplete and choppy. I'll read it again, but instead of Michale Glenny's translation, I'll try Marian Schwart's translation.

Just read it and marvel

A transcendent writer. Also read his masterpiece, "Master And Margarita."
