Here we have the Vintage novel "Doctor Zhivago" by Boris Pasternak Circa 1958.
Doctor Zhivago is an epic, a romance, and a history. It tells the story of Russian people forced to live through the many tragedies of the first half of the twentieth century, and it tells of the emotional trials of love in its most complicated forms. Yury Zhivago is a classic tragic hero, flawed in his inability to control his life and his loyalties but defined by a strong moral character and the desire to do right. The story of his life begins with misfortune; his parents both die when he is a child, and he is raised by his uncle. Later, he marries a friend for whom he has much affection, but he finds that he is drawn to another woman. He and his wife must struggle to survive under the threat of starvation and persecution, and he is forced to take part in the brutalities of war. He still finds himself longing for Lara, however, despite his feelings of loyalty toward Tonya.
