WA - Bulgakov, Master and Margarita - The role of Woland's retinue in the story

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I'm doing my Written Assignment on Bulgakov's Master and Margarita. More specifically, it deals with what the role of Woland's retinue is in the story. What I have is that they basically speed events up = they even act instead of Woland and they are the real main characters. Could you bounce some more ideas off me, please?

Thanks!

Hey,

This is YOUR written assignment so you need to bounce ideas off us - not us bouncing them off you! I suggest you google and see if anybody else has ever analysed this before (if you're desperate), but otherwise just read it a few times and have a think. Read all the parts where they appear and look at what they contribute. If you can only think of one role for the retinue in the story then you might want to wonder whether you've really picked a big enough topic!

In essence: people are happy to feedback on your ideas, but not come up with them for you :P It's your work to do.

Well, I in fact do have a draft. The thing is I found out that I really don't expand on their role in the story so much. For example, I talk about how Korovyev (or however you spell the name) seems to be the most unimportant from the lot but is in fact the one who catalyzes the story - thanks to him, it is more dynamic and the story "flows" better. It is him who directs Berlioz to the platform, where he slips and falls under the train etc.I talk about how the retinue gives money to Bosoy and then gives him away. So I have something, but I would really appreciate if you guys could help me with expanding upon this main idea.

thx
