I'm really struggling with my essay about the novel "The Master and Margarita" and how the author Bulgakov goes against socialist realism.
The prompt is this
Give an example from each one of the three narrative types in The Master and Margarita (the Moscow chapters, the Pontius Pilate chapters, and the Master and Margarita chapters) to illustrate ways in which Bulgakov defies socialist realism, the mandated literary style in Russia during the period Bulgakov composed the novel. You can find explanations of socialist realism online; please visit several sites so that you have more information. In rejecting socialist realism, what does Bulgakov regard as the purpose of literature?
Your essay should be 4-6 pages, typed, double-spaced and should include a brief introduction with a clear thesis statement, body paragraphs beginning with clear topic sentences that let me know the main point of the paragraph, specific and detailed examples from the novel including page citations, and a brief conclusion. Please don’t include plot summary, and please choose passages other than those we analyzed in class unless you can offer new insights. You should also include a works cited page that includes your edition of the novel and the websites you consulted. These citations should follow MLA format.
