I saw the movie long ago, when you suggest it to me. To be true I didn't like it at all, because it looks to me very unnatural. You know Russians have a different view on Russia than americans have ha2ha

Perhaps, but the movie was British.

I've never read Dr. Zhivago (or seen the movie); I'll have to remedy that.

This surprises me, Kathleen.  The Forum Bookworm has not read Doctor Zhivago?! 

I think you'll like the novel and the poetry.  There's an interesting story behind it.  The novel was refused publication in the USSR because it dwelled on the personal life which socialist doctrine rejected.  The manuscript was smuggled to Italy where it was first published.  In the USSR, manuscripts were typed and copied (samizdat) and circulated from reader to reader.  There were harsh penalties for copying or being in possession of censored material.  Boris Pasternak's life was made very difficult as a result and he was threatened with arrest and deportation as an enemy of the state.  He won the 1958 Nobel Prize for Literature which he had to decline.  He was told that if he traveled to Stockholm to accept the award, he would be refused re-entry to the Soviet Union.  He wrote this to Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev:  "Leaving the motherland will equal death for me.  I am tied to Russia by birth, by life and work."

The motion picture is loosely based on the novel but is epic in proportions and was a treat to see in the movie theater.  It remains the highest grossing film of all time.  I think you'll enjoy the film for its various character studies shown against the tumultuous backdrop of World War I and The Russian Revolution.

This particular scene exemplifies the experience shared by both the novel's protagonist and the author...

Thanks so much for the background information, Barry; that is really interesting. Now I will definitely have to get a copy.

I was teased for years in high school, and even college, about my love of reading, and so I self-consciously gave it up for a few years. In grad school I tried to make up for lost time. I remember the first book I picked up was Pearl Buck's The Good Earth; it's still a top favorite of mine.

I also need to know details such as this for my work. I was reprimanded last year for not catching a misspelling of Anne Sexton's name....and I see I erroneously abbreviated the "Doctor" in Doctor Zhivago.

The thought of typing up copies of that book -- it's quite lengthy, is it not? -- is really daunting.

My hardcover first edition (Pantheon 1958) is 558 pages, Kathleen. 

Here's a reprint of the hardcover edition published by Pantheon Books:  Doctor Zhivago

That's some fancy footwork! I had no idea Sammy Davis Jr. was so graceful.
