After graduating from Kiev University Mikhail Bulgakov would go on to decide his future lie in literature rather than practicing as a doctor during which he witnessed the horrors of the Russian civil war Bothered though by the censors and political unrest Bulgakov would write to Stalin asking to be allowed to emigrate if he couldn t make a living as a writer in the USSR And the word goes Stalin actually phoned him up offering a job in the Moscow Arts Theatre instead Similar to that of revolutionary writer Victor Serge Bulgakov s work only saw the light of day posthumously Safe to say thank god it didNot as well known as his most recognizable The Master and Margarita The White guard is certainly closer to non fiction and built on Bulgakov s own experiences during the turmoil and unpredictability of conflict The story takes place in a snow covered Kiev 1918 turning the spotlight on the once wealthy Turbin family After their mother passes away the three children of doctor Alexei the oldest Elena twenty four and seventeen year old Nikolka face up the fact of a new regime as Bolsheviks Socialists and Germans fight for total control over the city Elena s husband Captain Talberg would leave for battle as the household enters a fragile and worrying timeThe city itself is vivid to the eyes as confusion grows on the streets as to who is fighting with who through all it s unorganized chaos Bulgakov does a grand job of showing just that the chaosNothing is ever perceived clear as to what is actually going on in terms of leadershipBulgakov asserted that Kiev changed hands some 14 times in little over a year and could have written an epic Tolstoyish novel that covers ground but this is of a snapshot a panoramic view moving from character to character at regular intervals and it s length pleased me fully The departing German Imperial Army lead by the Hetman of Ukraine are replaced by opportunist leader Petlyura s supposed rise to power whilst the Ukrainian nationalist movement along with the The White Guard supporters of the Tsar jostle in the background Both brothers Alexei and Nikolka are White Guard officers who place their lives in danger as change takes shape There is no doubt Bulgakov pokes fun at both Petlyura and Hetman for their weak inabilities and the sheer waste of life youth and energy sacrificed in fighting And Bulgakov seems to foresee tribulations yet to come The novel is very military Regarding the narrative not all the time but when things get going in terns of the different forces involved Bulgakov clearly knows his stuff corruption in rife anti Semitism is high and the various armies struggle with personnel and supplies during some seriously cold weather But the household of the Turbins still remains central to the story which provides the humane touch although it doesn t feature as often during the middle third Elena waits for news on husband and one of the brothers who failed to return home whilst friends of the family come and go each with their own problemsThe Turbins do side with Tsar but there isn t any reel political stance from Bulgakov s viewpoint as normal life is trying to continue people get

A trip to Kiev cannot be complete without a little Bulgakov A museum dedicated to the master lies just off of St Andrew s Descent a cobblestone street passing from St Sophia s cathedral down to the Dneiper The museum is contained in House No 13 where at one time Mikhail Bulgakov and his family lived While The White Guard is not as widely known as The Master and Margarita which Salman Rushdie drew upon heavily for Midnight s Children it provides a better sense of Ukraine and particularly KievHouse No 13 in Kiev provides the place while 1918 and Ukrainian civil war provides the setting The story is about the survival of the Turbin family in the midst of this upheaval Bulgakov s writing is transcendentFor many years before her death in the house at No 13 St Alexei s Hill little Elena Alexei the eldest and baby Nikolka had grown up in the warmth of the tiled stove that burned in the dining room How often they had followed the story of Peter the Great in Holland The Shipwright of Saardam portrayed on its glowing hot dutch tiles how often the clock had played its gavotte and always towards the end of December there had been a smell of pine needles and candles burning on evergreen branchesBut clocks are fortunately uite immortal as immortal as the Shipwright of Saardam and however bad the times might be the tiled Dutch stove like a rock of wisdom was always there to radiate life and warmth p10The tiled stove upon which many political and apolitical messages are written is nearly a character in its own right The life it gives is not only comfort but humor tooThen printed on the stove in capitals in Nikolka s handI herby forbid the scribbling of nonsense on this stove Any comrade found guilty of doing so will be shot and deprived of civil rights Signed Abraham GoldblattLadies Gentlemen s and Women s TailorCommissar Podol District Committee30th January 1918Bulgakov s mastery of these slices of life make this an ideal book for reading while in Kiev The city comes alive with a personality that might otherwise have gone unnoticed Reading how things were while seeing how things are makes both the past and the present strikingThis book has not only history but action too The stakes are incredibly high Characters are shot they are robbed characters live they die The politics of the novel provide a roiling backdrop though I do not think politics is the point The intersection of politics and daily life particularly when politics has brought war is a fascinating topic and one that Bulgakov explores but never in a heavy handed manner The political is merely backdrop to the personalSomething had settled in Alexei s chest like a stone and he whistled as he breathed drawing in through bared teeth a sticky thin stream of air that barely penetrated to his lungs He had long ago lost consciousness and neither saw nor understood what was going on around him Elena stood and looked The professor took her by the arm and whispered Go now Elena Vasilievna we ll do all there is to do Elena obeyed and went out But the professor did not do anything p 275This moment to me was perfect Bulgakov has captured the essence of this type of situation The only thing the professor could do for Alexei was to reassure ElenaBulgakov brilliantly sketches even minor characters Outside of House No 13 a war is raging Several family members are involved and in this way the reader is provided a view of the wider world and the characters that inhabit it Perhaps my favorite is this troubling scene in which the janitor drafted into service as coroner is helping Nikolka the younger brother find Colonel Nais Turs Nikolka s fallen comrade in armsMoving carefully in order not to slip on the floor Fyodor grasped Nais Turs by the head and pulled hard A flat chested broad hipped woman was lying face down across Nai s stomach There was a cheap little comb in the hair at the back of her neck glittering dully like a fragment of glass Without stopping what he was doing Fyodor deftly pulled it out dropped it into the pocket of his apron and gripped NaiTurs under the armpits As it was pulled out of the pile his head lolled back his sharp unshaven chin pointed upwards and one arm slipped from the janitor s grasp p271Bulgakov keeps the plot taut and the reader engaged This book reuires little suspension of disbelief The White Guard is realist unlike the much fanciful The Master and Margarita Bulgakov does however add a touch of the supernatural And while the book is political enough to have been suppressed by Stalin the uestion of which of the three sides fighting the war is right is never really posed much less answered The interesting uestions all pertain to the individual and to a family trying to survive a civil war The primary loyalties are personal which in Ukraine as elsewhere reflects reality The book is ambivalent toward political loyalties and the revolutions borne of having putting those loyalties before the personal The author as surely as the characters must have had little enthusiasm for revolutionary politicsIn the end perhaps the highest praise I can give is that it would be difficult to read The White Guard without becoming attached to the Turbin family Perhaps this than any overt politics is why the novel was banned in the Stalinist Soviet Union Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man A Memoir years before

Bulgakov s elegant first novel about the unfolding of the October revolution in Kiev referred to as The City in the novel has been rereleased by the wonderful independent publisher Melville House this year in the Michael Glenny translation OutstandingTold through multiple points of view the book centers upon two days in the Russian Civil war December 13 and 14 1918 when the city of Kiev up to then controlled by the Ukrainian Hetman Skoropadsky a German puppet and ally of the Monarchist Russians falls to the armies of Petlyura a Ukranian peasant nationalist a figure of mystery and rumor The enemy of the Whites Petlyura s troops especially target the Russian officers who have supported the corrupt Skoropadsky and the Russian imperialist presence As Faulkner said the past is not over It is not even pastThe heart of the novel is the family of the Turbins Alexei a doctor returning from WWI his little brother Nikolai 17 and a cadet at the Russian military academy and their sister Elena the muse of a circle of Alexei s officer friends each uickly but masterfully drawn as well as the Turbin s comic foil Vasily Lisovich known as Vasilisa after the folk heroine Vasilisa the Beautiful an almost Doestoyevskian idiot who is the Turbin s downstairs neighborAdmirably told the novel reveals the hand of Bulgakov the dramatist as well as that of the prose artist I especially admired the skill in passing the story from one point of view to another the brilliant timing The dreams and Alexei Turbin s delirium in a fever from typhus very much herald the arrival of the surrealist Master and Margarita as well as recalling some of the feverish moments of The Magic MountainThe White Guard beautifully portrays the chaos of a civil war in which rumor is only contradicted by actual shooting in which someone s giving you orders one minute and in the next jumps on a train heading for Germany or simply disappears There is no clearcut good or bad in this book except for loyalty itself Although it describes the taking of Kiev from the White side it shows that the real loyalty in this world lives in one s family the Turbins and friends the officers a total stranger who saves your life or a superior who holds his ground in the face of a dissolving defense Bulgakov it was said had a very happy home life growing up and the affection and mutual aid of the three Turbins and their household definitely reflects that The prose work was published in 1925 as a magazine serial but the magazine folded before the serial was complete The popular play based on this story ran in Soviet Russia from 1926 to 1941 though the book did not appear until 1966 Stalin was said to have seen the play many times and it probably saved Bulgakov s life The Master and Margarita was far
