(Timeless Wisdom Collection Book 1076)




New version uploaded August 03, 2014; reviewed in depth for typos. Translation improved (but respects the original text).

We is a dystopian novel completed in 1921 as a response to the author's personal experiences during the Russian revolution of 1905, the Russian revolution of 1917, and his work as a Marine Engineer in the Tyne shipyards during the First World War (where he saw the collectivization of labour on a large scale).

At some point, it was an origin of a controversy between authors George Orwell (Nineteen Eighty Four), and Aldous Huxley (Brave New World). Orwell insinuated Brave New World was partly derived from We, charges that Huxley vehemently denied ( Orwell thought Huxley "was lying").

Kurt Vonnegut said that in writing Player Piano (1952), he "cheerfully ripped off the plot of Brave New World, whose plot had been cheerfully ripped off from Yevgeny Zamyatin's We."

We is set in the future. D-503 lives in the One State, an urban nation constructed almost entirely of glass, which allows the secret police/spies to inform on and supervise the public more easily. One thousand years after the One State's conquest of the entire world, the spaceship Integral is being built in order to invade and conquer extraterrestrial planets. Meanwhile, the project's chief engineer, D-503, begins a journal that he intends to be carried upon the completed spaceship.

We, romance do russo Yevgeny Zamyatin tem uma história por trás da história. Os manuscritos mais antigos da obra datam de 1919, mas ela só foi concluída em 1921. Por conta do tema tratado, foi a primeira obra censurada pelo Goskomizdat, na época o novo bureau de censura da União Soviética. A primeira vez que o livro foi publicado foi em inglês, três anos após ter sido terminado. Em russo, só em 1988 ele foi impresso, revelando-se assim um dos casos raros em que a tradução foi publicada... leia mais
