About This Book
Novel by Boris Pasternak, published in Italy in 1957. This epic tale about the
effects of the Russian Revolution and its aftermath on a bourgeois family was
not published in the Soviet Union until 1987. One of the results of its
publication in the West was Pasternak's complete rejection by Soviet
authorities; when he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1958 he was
compelled to decline it. The book quickly became an international best-seller.
Dr. Yury Zhivago, Pasternak's alter ego, is a poet, philosopher, and physician
whose life is disrupted by the war and by his love for Lara, the wife of a
revolutionary. His artistic nature makes him vulnerable to the brutality and
harshness of the Bolsheviks; wandering throughout Russia, he is unable to take
control of his fate, and dies in utter poverty. The poems he leaves behind
constitute some of the most beautiful writing in the novel.
