Nothing in the whole of literature compares with The Master and Margarita. One spring afternoon, the Devil, trailing fire and chaos in his wake, weaves himself out of the shadows and into Moscow. Mikhail Bulgakov's fantastical, funny, and devastating satire of Soviet life combines two distinct yet interwoven parts, one set in contemporary Moscow, the other in ancient Jerusalem, each brimming with historical, imaginary, frightful, and wonderful characters. Written during the darkest days of Stalin's reign, and finally published in 1966 and 1967, The Master and Margarita became a literary phenomenon, signaling artistic and spiritual freedom for Russians everywhere.

The novel is consistently—and comically—critical of authorities and shows up the follies of a state exerting too much of an interfering influence on its people. Master and Margarita is a dark subject of Soviet society, a listener review of the stories of Faust and Pontius Pilate, and an intriguing love story. The novel begins with the arrival of the devil in 1930 as the famous Professor Woland in Moscow.

Though she is married to someone else, her true love is the master, though she does not know if he is alive or dead. Margarita does not make an appearance in the book until halfway through, but her importance becomes obvious thereon in. In the novel the devil and his retinue (which includes a wall-eyed loon and a talking cat) manipulate "the Master", a writer, and Margarita, his muse.
