«Bulgakov and Voloshin in 1920s»The personal friendship of the two writers was based on an creative proximity. Voloshin considered Bulgakov as “the first who captured the soul of Russian strife”. However, he did so himself with no less artistic force in the poem “Russia,” verses about the first years of revolution and civil war. The modern reader can see many parallels between the works of Voloshin and Bulgakov: a position “above the fray,” the correlation of events in Russia with Russian and world history, an appeal to the characters and motifs of the Bible, as well as to the works of Russian writers, especially Dostoevsky. They also had in common the fact that literary critics of the 1920s failed to understand both writers who, during their lives, remained underappreciated.
