"[Zamyatin's] intuitive grasp of the irrational side of
totalitarianism- human sacrifice, cruelty as an end in itself-makes
[We] superior to Huxley's [Brave New World]."
An inspiration for George Orwell's "1984" and a precursor to the
work of Philip K. Dick and Stanislaw Lem, We is a classic of
dystopian science fiction ripe for rediscovery. Written in 1921 by
the Russian revolutionary Yevgeny Zamyatin, this story of the
thirtieth century is set in the One State, a society where all live
for the collective good and individual freedom does not exist. The
novel takes the form of the diary of state mathematician D-503,
who, to his shock, experiences the most disruptive emotion
imaginable: love for another human being.
At once satirical and sobering-and now available in a powerful new
modern translation-We speaks to all who have suffered under
repression of their personal and artistic freedom.
"One of the greatest novels of the twentieth century."
