Plot synopsis
Nikolai Vladimirovich Shatrov is a poet whose name is unfamiliar even to the widely-read – his work did not fit the format expected of Soviet poetry in his time. And these days, when interest in poetry is practically zero, few remember him. A pity, for he was an unusual man and a unique poet. It was he who was destined to become the ‘godfather’ of Pasternak’s Doctor Zhivago. Nikolay Shatrov met Boris Pasternak through Jacqueline de Proyart, the famous Slavist who managed to smuggle out of the Soviet Union the only copy of Pasternak’s manuscript with the author’s corrections.
