After reading Bulgakov’s novel “Heart of a Dog” answer the following questions. Make sure to reference specific examples from the text (using quotes with page numbers would be the most effective but not mandatory) – minimum 15 sentences total.

NOTE: Be specific in your posts and comments and reference specific details from the text. I deduct points for vague answers.
Questions:
-Find the examples of satirical portrayal of Bolsheviks in the novel. What do they say about Bulgakov’s attitude toward the October Revolution of 1917? How did you figure out the satirical nature of these examples?
-Find examples of symbolism. What do they represent? – If nothing else, you should start with the analysis of the title. Why is the novel titled “Heart of a Dog” and not, for example, “Brain of a human” which would be true as well? What constitutes the major attributes of Sharikov’s personality and why? How much is it a responsibility of the doctors? What about other factors? Why did transformation fail? What does this failed transformation represent symbolically? What symbols from the novel can be applied to our times, in your opinion?
-Who narrates the story and why did Bulgakov choose such a style of narration? – From whose point of view is the story narrated in the beginning and why? How does it change and when?
Thank you ^-^
