Heart of a Dog Description

Mikhail Bulgakov s absurdist parable of the Russian Revolution.A world famous Moscow professor rich, successful, and violently envied by his neighbors befriends a stray dog and resolves to achieve a daring scientific first by transplanting into it the testicles and pituitary gland of a dead man But the results are wholly unexpected a distinctly and worryingly human animal is on the loose, and the professor s hitherto respectable life becomes a nightmare beyond endurance.As in The Master and Margarita, the masterpiece he completed shortly before his death, Mikhail Bulgakov s early novel, written in 1925, combines outrageously grotesque ideas with a narrative of deadpan naturalism The Heart of a Dog can be read as an absurd and wonderfully comic story it can also be read as a fierce parable of the Russian Revolution..
