Overview

Perestroika finally brought to public light the work of Bulgakov (1891-1940). In his 1990 study in Polish (evolving over some 20 years), Drawicz (1932-97), a leading Polish authority on Russian literature and affairs, treats Bulgakov's life and essays on such topics as how "Russian literature has 'gone to the Devil' many times" (including his own Lesser Devil), satire, comedy and compromise, and normality. The book includes a glossary of Russian terms, events, and personalities not fully explained in Drawicz's text. It lacks a subject index. Windle (classical and modern European languages, Australian National U., Canberra) has translated and published on Slavic literature.
