The Master and Margarita

”One hot spring evening, just as the sun was going down, two men appeared at Patriarch’s Ponds.”

– Mikhail Bulgakov, The Master and Margarita

The Master and Margarita was written by Mikhail Bulgakov.

Sympathy for the Devil

Please allow me to introduce myself
I’m a man of wealth and taste
I’ve been around for a long, long year
Stole many a man’s soul and faith

And I was ’round when Jesus Christ
Had his moment of doubt and pain
Made damn sure that Pilate
Washed his hands and sealed his fate

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
But what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of my game

The Satanic Verses

The Master and Margarita was one of the major inspirations for Salman Rushdie‘s controversial novel The Satanic Verses (1988).
