"[Zamyatin's] intuitive grasp of the irrational side of totalitarianism human sacrifice, cruelty as an end in itselfmakes [We] superior to Huxley's [Brave New World]." George Orwell 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 soberingand now available in a powerful new modern translationWe speaks to all who have suffered under repression of their personal and artistic freedom. "One of the greatest novels of the twentieth century." Irving Howe From the Trade Paperback edition.
