The Master and Margarita is a Soviet novel that satirized bureaucratic absurdities of the Soviet Union and so remained unpublished for many years. The novel follows three intertwined partially-fantastical stories: the devil, Woland, and his cronies arriving in Moscow and wreaking havoc, the story of Pontius Pilate and the crucifixion of Yeshua, Christ, and the story of The Master, a writer, and his love, Margarita. The novel includes themes of religion, literature, insanity, the mystical and redemption.
