    There is one edition of Doctor Zhivago whose cover boasts that it is 'one of the greatest love stories ever told' In fact that one tagline is what almost put me off reading this epic novel from Russian master poet Boris Pasternak This is a hefty book I didn't want to dedicate all my time to a soppy love story Thankfully calling Doctor Zhivago a 'love story' is like saying Crime and Punishment is about the peri

In love with the tender and beautiful nurse LaraRichard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky have restored the rhythms tone precision and poetry of Pasternak's original bringing this classic of world literature gloriously to life for a new generation of reader. The 1965 David Lean film with the same title is one of my all time favorite movies and so it was an inevitability that I would one day finally read Boris Pasternak s novel masterpiece Like James Dickey and Robert Penn Warren this novel written by a poet leaves the reader with an idea of lyric uality Nowhere is his identification as a poet realized than at the end as the books finishes with a section of poetry though there are passages throughout the book that blend seamlessly into an introspective mystical poetry and back again to the illustrative narrative This style is a stark contrast to the realistic journalistic prose of Truman Capote s In Cold Blood written just a few years later but across the pond The freuent references to Russian mysticism and a longing for an older idyllic time is reminiscent of Bulgakov s The Master and Margarita The air smells of pancakes and vodka This is expressionism feigning realism The great art of Doctor Zhivago is the connection with the tragic time and place it documents the Russian transformation into the Soviet Union Yuri Andreyivich becomes a personification for the lost Russia his mother s funeral and his father s suicide further metaphor for a lost innocence a cutting off and separation from what was and an isolationist orphaned stepping into the future Zhivago s journey along with his fellow Russians into Soviet communism and his evolving disillusionment is both an allegory of the torture of individuality and a prayer for the undying hope and poetry of human resiliency Yet Pasternak and by extension his creation Zhivago makes allowances for the need for social reform in Russia and so his later and eventual dissatisfaction with communism has greater weight and credibilityBesides Yuri Andreyivich Pasternak describes a triumvirate of Russian characters PashaStrelnikov Kamerovski and of course Lara Pasha who transforms himself into the Red Army terrorist Strelnikov who also resembles Conrad s Kurtz personifies the Russian idealist who is seduced and blinded by power who begins with well intentioned plans and dreams and comes to murder outrage and a death of moral courage Kamerovski could be on a short list of greatest literary villains of the twentieth century The shameless lawyer who betrayed Yuri s parents and ruined Lara comes to symbolize the debauchery of Czarist Russian the extravagance and immoral bankruptcy of the times Lara is Mother Russia raped by a gilded villain obligatorily married to an ideal and in love hopelessly and tragically to a poet philosopher with whom togetherness cannot beI can understand how someone could call this their favorite work of all time it was beautifully written and like Tolstoy s War and Peace was iconoclastically both epic and intimately personal I did very much enjoy reading it and Pasternak s poetic prose gives a magnified appreciation to Lean s work which was a fine tribute to the Great Russian novel

From the acclaimed translators of War and Peace and Anna Karenina a stunning new translation of Boris Pasternak's Nobel Prize winning masterpiece the first since the original Banned in the Soviet Union until Doctor Zhivago is the epic story of the life a. There was no way I could ever escape reading Doctor Zhivago After all I m a proud daughter of a literature teacher this book earned the Nobel Prize for Boris Pasternak and it has been staring at me from the top of my to read pile for years with uiet accusationAnd so reader I finally read it Doctor Zhivago is an interesting novel It is very character centered but is absolutely not character driven It is an epochal novel focused on the particularly turbulent violent and uncertain but yet future defining era in Russian history the time frame around the Russian Revolution and the following years of brutality and confusion in the Russian Civil War The driving forces of the story are the freuently senseless and almost always cruel historical events a greater force against which the efforts and intentions and agency itself of the characters are pathetically frustratingly helpless and futile It is really a story of individual fates trampled under the relentlessly rolling forward bulldozer of historyWhat may surprise some people who via the phenomenon of cultural osmosis may know of this story as one of the greatest stories of forbidden and doomed love ever written or something of similar sort a misunderstanding perhaps perpetuated by the 1960s screen adaptation of this book the love story is a uite small part of the overall plot Don t read it for the pangs of unreuited love or the tension of the love triangle the disappointment is sure to come if those are your expectationsBoris Pasternak with the bravery not encouraged in the Soviet Union seemed to be not only acutely aware of the historical forces relentlessly driving the lives of his compatriots but also which was definitely unacceptable and a few years prior to the completion of the novel under the ever increasing paranoia of Josef Stalin s rule would have been in the best case scenario punished by uite a few years in GULAG concentration camps in the depths of Siberia recognized the absolute senselessness of so much if what had happened His courage in expressing such views paid off in the form Nobel Prize that he was successfully pressured to reject back in 1958 the Nobel Prize that was given as we know now not just for the merits of the novel itself but for what it represented a daring slap in the face of the Soviet system both despised and feared in the Western worldWhile I m at it I d like to make sure I get across that while being uite skeptical about the October Socialist Revolution and its conseuences Pasternak was definitely not even close to being starry eyed or wearing rose tinted glasses of nostalgia when it came to the old way of living in Russia the world shattered by the events of the revolution He never leaves a doubt that the old world order needed to be changed that the change was both necessary and organically expected but the direction the change took was painfully brutal and perhaps less than ideal and those who have suffered from such a radical change were perhaps the best people Russia had at that time but their value has not made them any less vulnerable to the unrelenting march of time and dictatorship of proletariat It s only in bad novels that people are divided into two camps and have nothing to do with each other In real life everything gets mixed up Don t you think you d have to be a hopeless nonentity to play only one role all your life to have only one place in society always to stand for the same thingYes Pasternak clearly had strong views on what has happened and continued to happen No surprise he used his novel to express them Therefore you do get pages and pages of beautifully expressed opinions in the form of passionate speeches These pages are both wonderful since they are so insightful and interesting and full of understanding of internal and external conflicts that go into the formation of these opinions as well as actually detrimental to the novel in the way we usually think of novels since there is little dialog as such most of it replaced by passionate oration These speeches hinder the narrative flow and introduce early on the feeling of artificialness never allowing you to forget that this novel is a construction that serves the author s purpose rather than being an organic story No single man makes history History cannot be seen just as one cannot see grass growing Wars and revolutions kings and Robespierres are history s organic agents its yeast But revolutions are made by fanatical men of action with one track mind geniuses in their ability to confine themselves to a limited field They overturn the old order in a few hours or days the whole upheaval takes a few weeks or at most years but the fanatical spirit that inspired the upheavals is worshiped for decades thereafter for centuries The character development also suffers from the focus on the greater external events I could never shake off the feeling that the characters were present as merely the vehicles for driving the story to where the author wanted it to go they never developed into real people for me instead remaining the illustrations of Pasternak s points and the mouthpieces for his ideas In short to me even 600 pages in they remained little but obedient marionettes Besides what I found a bit distracting and ringing of contrivance was the sheer amount of coincidences and unbelievable run ins into each other that all his characters experienced in the vast reaches of the Russian empire with freuency that one would expect from neighbors in a tiny village The web of destiny with these improbable conseuences tends to disintegrate into the strings holding up puppets and that s unfortunate in such a monumental bookAnd Pasternak s prose it left me torn On one hand his descriptions are apt and beautiful making scenes come to life with exceptional vividness On the other hand his descriptors and sentences freuently tend to clash marring otherwise beautiful picture The reason these occurrences stand out so much to me is perhaps the knowledge of Pasternak s absolute brilliance as a poet so easily seen in the collection of poems accompanying this novel It s amazing to me to see the level of mastery he shows in his verse the poem A Winter Night collouially known as simply The Candle Burned after its famous refrain is one of the best poems I know honestly and Hamlet is made of pure perfection and therefore a bit disappointing to see it not always repeated in his proseSadly despite my way too long obsessive internet search I could not come across a translation of these poems that came even close to doing justice to their brilliance It s very unfortunate but I guess some things need to be experienced only in the original A good reason to learn Russian rightAnd yet despite the imperfections and the unevenness there is still something in this novel that reflects the genius talent that created it There is still something that did not let me put this book aside even when I realized I did not love it as much as I had hoped The greatness is still there despite the flaws and it remains something to be admired35 stars Outies (Moties proud daughter of a literature teacher
