About the Book

We is an apocalyptic novel by Russian writer Yevgeny Zamyatin. The novel was written between 1920-1921. It was first published as a novel in English translation by Gregory Zilboorg in 1924 by E. P. Dutton in New York, U.S., with the initial Russian text first issued in the year 1952. The novel outlines a world of conformity and harmony within a united dictatorial state. It is contingent on the emergence of allotropic as an intellectual genre. George Orwell asserted that Aldous Huxley's, "A Brave New World," published in 1931, must be partly derived from "We," but Huxley denied this. In a glass-confined city of absolutely clear lines, ruled over by the all-powerful "contributor," the citizens of the dictatorial society lived a life of creativity and passion until D-503, a mathematician who has a nightmare of numbers, made a breakthrough: he was an individual soul. Set in the 26th century AD, "We" was a classic novel and the ancestor of works such as 1984 by Aldous Huxley's Brave New World and George Orwell. It was abolished for many years in Russia and remains a resounding cry for specific freedom, yet is also a strong, amazing, and bright work of science fiction.

About Author

Eugene Zamiatin

Eugene Zamyatin was born on January 1st and March 10th, 1937. He has many award-winning novels to his credit, but "We" is one of his best. Zamyatin, whom Mirra Ginsburg has described as "a man of upstanding and inflexible courage," is now considered one of the first Soviet dissidents due to his continued use of literature to both deride and condemn the Russian Union's executed compliance and growing fascism. He is best known for his highly influential and extensively emulated 1921 dystopian fiction novel "We," which is set in a modern police state. Although he was the son of an Orthodox Russian priest, Zamyatin lost his faith in Christianity at an early age and became a Bolshevik. As a member of his party's pre-revolutionary underground, Zamyatin was many times arrested, imprisoned, beaten, and banished. Nevertheless, Zamyatin has been just as severely disturbed by the policies continued by the All-Union Communist Party following the October rotation as he had been by the autocracy policy of "autocracy, nationality, and orthodoxy." In 1921, "We" became the first work outlawed by the Soviet censorship panel. Eventually, he arranged for "we" to be inserted into the West for publication.
