In a glass city composed of absolute straight lines, ruled over by the all-powerful ‘Benefactor’, the citizens of OneState live their lives without passion or agency. That is until D-503, a man tasked with bringing the Revolution to the stars, meets a remarkable woman. Supressed in Russia for decades, Zamyatin’s dystopian masterpiece prophesised the worst excesses of the Soviet Union, while creating an enduring and vivid vision of what future societies might look like – a vision that would inspire George Orwell’s ‘1984’ and many subsequent dystopias.

Description

‘The best single work of science fiction yet written’ Ursula K. Le Guin

The dystopian masterwork that inspired George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, We depicts a futuristic totalitarian society, ‘OneState’, where humans have become numbers. Suppressed in Russia for decades, it is a chilling vision of a world enslaved by technology.

‘Zamyatin’s parable looked forward to climate change and surveillance culture … to peer into its future is to see modernity’s reflection gazing darkly back’ Economist
