This paper is a discussion of the struggle for political power as portrayed in both novels. It looks at the themes of power of the individual against the machinery of history, dehumanization, and re-humanization.

From the Paper:

"Gabriel Garcia Marquez's One Hundred Years of Solitude and Mikhail Bulgakov's The Master and Margarita are both novels which concentrate thematically on the relations of power between humans, and the violence of authoritarian control. Both contain characters in the midst of, and at the mercy of 'great history', and both portray the dehumanising effects of ideological struggle."
