The peak of Bulgakov’s work is rightly called the novel “Master and Margarita”. In no other work have so many philosophical questions been raised that are still relevant to the reader. And the novel pays special attention to the issues of loneliness. Each of the main characters in his own way is lonely and unhappy. Literally on the first pages of the novel appears a man with the moniker Homeless. This name is not chosen by chance and carries symbolism. He is one of those who survived the revolution of 1917, having lost almost everything. But he could not find himself in a new world. He hangs around in the spaces of knowledge, in search of a phantom hope that could give his life a meaning.
Levi Matvey belongs to the Jews. But he will put all his strength for the good of Rome. Now it is absolutely unnecessary for its own people, and for the Romans. He is very lonely and tries to drown the smack of pain with constant work. Pontius Pilate was a rather lonely person and before meeting with Yeshua, but after their acquaintance, the degree of awareness of their own loneliness became much worse. He betrayed an innocent man who called him a friend. He blames himself for this, but still chooses a career against the life of the innocent. Pontius feels lonely because he has neglected the laws of morality and higher laws. Now he is paying for the wrong choice with a terrible loneliness and doom.
Doomed to the suffering and loneliness and the main characters of the novel. The master created a great work, in which he illuminated his vision of the events of past centuries. His novel is his child, which is very important for the author. He put his soul into him, but he did not receive recognition. He becomes lonely creatively. The society rejects the Master’s novel, which is the meaning of his life. Even after the publication of his creation, critics unanimously give a negative review. The author despairs from society, burns the manuscript, and in this I see the cause of his loneliness. Margarita loves the Master with all her heart, but she is forced to be separated from her beloved. The loneliness of the heroine devours her from the inside and makes her very unhappy. Thus, every acting character in Bulgakov’s novel is doomed, to a certain kind of loneliness.
