Description:

New York. 1969. Grove Press. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Wrappers. 27. 109 pages. E-517. paperback. keywords: May 15. inventory # 38331. FROM THE PUBLISHER - FLIGHT is an evocation of defeat and exile. Set in the early Twenties in southern Russia, the Crimea, Constantinople, and Paris, the play follows a group of White Russians escaping after the last days of the Civil War. Bulgakov based two principal characters, the Commander in Chief and Khludov, on General Wrangel, commander of the White Armies, and the notorious General Slashchov, commander of the Wrangel forces in the Crimea. In this setting of chaos and disintegration, the author explores the problem of the displaced person in its endless variations - geographic, political, cultural, moral, and philosophical. The large cast portrays a great variety of personalities in scenes which shift from monstrous crimes to hilarious cockroach races; from desperate gambling to shrill arguments between a camp wife and an aristocratic lady; from loyal friendship to betrayal - and end in the final flight home. In his tragicomic vein, Bulgakov treats his characters as doomed human beings rather than stock images of ‘the class enemy’ - a fact that caused the play to be banned during his lifetime, and a fact that lends his drama such significance today.
