Bulgakov reading online course by Institute of Russian Culture and Language
Michail Afanasievič Bulgakov was born on May 15, 1891 in Kiev, his father was a professor at the Theological Academy. Michail graduated from the Kiev grammar school and in 1916 from the Faculty of Medicine of the Kiev University. Two years – during the revolution he worked as a doctor in a village in the Smolensk province, then returned home to Kiev, where he lived until the autumn of 1919. In 1925 he published his first novel: the White Guard, when his performances were still staged in cinemas. He received recognition for his artistic work only after his death. Michail Bulgakov died of hereditary kidney disease on March 10, 1940 in Moscow.
Bulgakov began his literary work with satirical and grotesque stories, published for the first time in Moscow magazines. The stories were inspired by medical practice. Although all the works have been very successful for the public, the characteristic satirical vision of Bulgakov’s life and post-revolutionary society have provoked hostile reactions from critics and especially the approval of political bodies.
Michail Afanasievič Bulgakov is one of the most important writers of the 20s of the 20th century and his two works will be discussed during this online course: “Heart of a dog” and “Fatal eggs”. You will be guided through the course by Professor RITA GIULIANI, who has devoted much of her academic research to this Russian giant. She trained at the old Faculty of Letters and Philosophy of “Sapienza” under the guidance of Angelo Maria Ripellino and Agostino Lombardo and at the MGU of Moscow.
