Russian Dystopia: Evgenii Zamiatin's We
Critical analysis of 1924 dystopian novel in terms of dialecticalism. Evgenii Zamiatin’s work is a lens through which the issues pertaining to utopian literature can be examined. Zamiatin established the cultural coordinates of dystopia in imaginative literature. Among the virtues of Zamiatin's novel are the tropes later to be found in the dystopian works following in the wake of Zamiatin. The dialectical perspective on We reflects the author’s intent and also the reason that We is the essential 20th century dystopia — in that the same dialectical process motivated the creation of the Soviet Union.
