Il Maestro e Margherita

di Michail Bulgakov

(Ucraina 1891-1940)

Al mattino si sveglia taciturno, ma completamente tranquillo e rimesso. La sua martoriata memoria si placa, e fino al prossimo plenilunio nessuno inquieterà il professore: né l’assassino col naso infossato di Hesta, né il feroce quinto procuratore della Giudea, il cavaliere Ponzio Pilato.
