Product Description

The original translation first published in Britain in 1958Boris Pasternak was born in Moscow in 1890 and after briefly training as a composer resolved to be a writer. He published a large number of collections of poetry, written under the burden of Soviet Russia's stringent censorship, before publishing his most famous work, Dr Zhivago, in 1958. This novel won him the Nobel Prize for Literature but the USSR's hostility to the West meant he was forced to turn it down. He died in 1960.

TRANSLATED BY MAX HAYWARD AND MANYA HARARI

Banned in the Soviet Union until 1988, Doctor Zhivago is the epic story of the life and loves of a poet-physician during the turmoil of the Russian Revolution. Taking his family from Moscow to shelter in the Ural Mountains, Yuri Zhivago finds himself embroiled in a battle between the Whites and the Reds, and in love with the beautiful nurse Lara.

The first work of genius to come out of Russia since the RevolutionOne of the great events in man's literary and moral historyBelongs to that small group of novels by which all others are ultimately judgedNot since Shakespeare has love been so fully, vividly, scrupulously and directly communicated
