The classic Russian dystopia that inspired Nineteen Eighty-Four and influenced writers from Nabokov to Rand to Vonnegut.

About the Author

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 1920-1921 and soon thereafter translated into most of the languages of the world. Clarence Brown was a pioneer of Russian literature studies and translation. His brilliant translation of We was based on the corrected text of the novel, first published in Russia in 1988 after more than sixty years' suppression.

Reviews

The best single work of science fiction yet written -- Ursula K. Le Guin
We is a shapely work of the imagination. As the first major anti-utopian fiction it famously stood both the Soviet Union and the Wellsian scientific romance upside down. * Kirkus *
