Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

The narrator describes a state in which the individuals have given up their freedom for materialistic rewards, in this utopian satire.


Review:

"Although 'We' is the most determined propaganda imaginable, its grave aesthetic balance and harmony, the carefully structured discipline of its style, are--so to speak--Serapion; and they have been superlatively rendered in Mirra Ginsburg's translation."

John Bayley, New York Review of Books, 10/19/72

Book Description: Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 1993. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 197 x 130 mm. Brand New Book. A seminal work of dystopian fiction that foreshadowed the worst excesses of Soviet Russia, Yevgeny Zamyatin s We is a powerfully inventive vision that has influenced writers from George Orwell to Ayn Rand. This Penguin Classics edition is translated from the Russian with an introduction by Clarence Brown. In a glass-enclosed city of absolute straight lines, ruled over by the all-powerful Benefactor , the citizens of the totalitarian society of OneState live out lives devoid of passion and creativity - until D-503, a mathematician who dreams in numbers, makes a discovery: he has an individual soul. Set in the twenty-sixth century AD, We is the classic dystopian novel and was the forerunner of works such as George Orwell s 1984 and Aldous Huxley s Brave New World . It was suppressed for many years in Russia and remains a resounding cry for individual freedom, yet is also a powerful, exciting and vivid work of science fiction. Clarence Brown s brilliant translation is based on the corrected text of the novel, first published in Russia in 1988 after more than sixty years suppression. Yevgeny Zamyatin (1884-1937) was a naval engineer by profession and writer by vocation, who made himself an enemy of the Tsarist government by being a Bolshevik, and an enemy of the Soviet government by insisting that human beings have absolute creative freedom. He wrote short stories, plays and essays, but his masterpiece is We , written in 1920-21 and soon thereafter translated into most of the languages of the world. It first appeared in Russia only in 1988. If you enjoyed We , you might like George Orwell s 1984 , also available in Penguin Classics . The best single work of science fiction yet written . (Ursula K. LeGuin, author of The Left Hand of Darkness ). It is in effect a study of the Machine, the genie that man has thoughtlessly let out of its bottle and cannot put back again . (George Orwell, author of 1984 ). Bookseller Inventory # AAU9780140185850
