''Doctor Zhivago'' is a 1957 novel which got its author (Boris Pasternak) a {{Nobel Prize|In Literature}}. That he was forced to reject by the Soviet government. It is one of the most famous works of Russian Literature, worth mentioning in the same breath as ''WarAndPeace'', ''Literature/CrimeAndPunishment'' and ''OneDayInTheLifeOfIvanDenisovich''. A tale of lost love that takes in WorldWarOne, the Russian Revolutions and the Russian Civil War, it has been adapted several times, including in Russia itself. The most famous film adaptation is ''Film/DoctorZhivago'' (1965), DavidLean's followup to ''LawrenceOfArabia'' starring [[TallDarkAndHandsome Omar Sharif]] and JulieChristie, best known for its [[EpicMovie epic scope]], and for the world famous [[AwesomeMusic/{{Film}} "Lara's Theme"]]. The film was praised for its visual style that was a calling card for its director DavidLean. It also features Rod Steiger as Komarovsky. !!For the film, go here - [[Film/DoctorZhivago Film/Doctor Zhivago]]. ---- Recently it was adapted again into a 2002 two-part Creator/{{PBS}} ''MasterpieceTheatre'' presentation, which added an extra hour to the movie's run time, making it roughly four hours total. They decided to use the time to add in more characters, move some people around in terms of plot, make it grittier and add in some longer sex scenes which would not have been cool for a 1965 movie. Starring KeiraKnightley and Hans Matheson, it also featured Sam Neil as Komarovsky, making him an even bigger MagnificentBastard than any other onscreen adaptation yet. ''Doctor Zhivago'' has also been adapted into a stage musical, premiering in Sydney, Australia in 2011. For film examples, see the page on [[DrZhivago the David Lean film]]. ---- !!The Novel itself contains examples of: * BannedInChina: Pasternak's book was originally banned in the Soviet Union. * BrotherSisterIncest: Zhivago and Tonya. In all fairness, he was adopted. * DeathOfTheHypotenuse: [[spoiler: Pasha. It doesn't stick, though.]] * {{Defictionalization}}: Later editions include excerpts of Yuri's poetry. * {{Doorstopper}} * GenderBender: The sex and name of Yuri and Lara's child changes with each adaptation. * LamarckWasRight: In the movie, at least, Yuri's mother [[InformedAbility is said to be]] an artist of the balalaika. [[spoiler: Yuri and Lara's child inherited this.]] * MeaningfulName: ** Zhivago: the Russian root zhiv is similar to 'life' ** Larissa: a Greek name suggesting 'bright, cheerful' ** Komarovsky: komar is the Russian for 'mosquito' ** Strelnikov: strelok means 'the shooter' * MostWritersAreWriters: In addition to being a doctor, Yuri is a poet. * NotBloodSiblings: Zhivago and Tonya. * {{Patronymic}}s: At least one modern English edition has a guide to patronymics. * UnluckyChildhoodFriend: [[spoiler: Poor, poor Tonya. despite being Yuri's foster-sister (very, very foster...), his best friend, his life-long companion and confidant, not to mention the mother of two of his children, she gets dumped, HARD. Each adaptation plays it off differently as to how much Yuri loved her but really the girl gets dumped because she just isn't Lara.]] * LovingForce: Komarovsky and Lara.
