The New York Review of Books declared. "the English-speaking world is indebted."" "First published in Italy in 1957 amid internatrional controversy---the novel was banned in the Soviet Union Until 1988. and Pasternak declined the Nobel prize a year later under intense pressure from soviet authorities---Doctor Zhiuago is the story of the life and loves of a poet-physician during the turmoil of the Russian Revolution. Taking his family from Moscow to What he hopes will be shelter in the Ural Mountains, Zhivago finds himself instead embroiled in the battle between the Whites and the Reds. Set against this backdrop of cruelty and Strife is Zhivago's love for the tender and beautiful Lara: Pursued, found, and lost again, Lara is the very embodiment of the pain and chaos of those cataclymic times."
