Мы Author Yevgeny Zamyatin Read î 2 Review Мы Author Yevgeny Zamyatin The exhilarating dystopian novel that inspired George Orwell's 1984 and foreshadowed the worst excesses of Soviet RussiaYevgeny Zamyatin's We is a powerfully inventive vision that has influenced writers from George Orwell to Ayn Rand In a glass enclosed city of absolute straight lines ruled over by the all powerful 'Benefactor' the. It s been a decade since I first read Zamyatin s masterpiece and even though this book remains unchanged for almost a century now the person who read it is not A decade later I m a very different person no longer the wide eyed undergraduate who thought she had the world all figured out Time has added a bit life experience an overdose of cynicism a few collisions with the rougher edges of the universe and a few still subtle grey hairs Time has dispelled some of the youthful cocky confidence softened a few edges sharpened a few and helped open my eyes to the areas of life I used to give little thought to before It managed to keep my love of philosophical discussions intact but greatly decreased the amount of wine I can have fueling thoseIn short I m no longer the same person as I was a decade ago reading Zamyatin s masterpiece for the first timeAnd this book for me now is very different than it was back then I can see of its unsettling depth and it leaves me almost speechless just joking of course nothing in this world can make me really shut upI remember being impressed by the dystopian society focusing on the idea of One State the totalitarian oppression and the parallels between it and the soon to follow societal changes in Zamyatin s motherland You know the obvious easy stuff the one that gets uite old after reading a few dystopian books like Orwell s one inspired by We the stuff that causes exasperated sigh of Yes I get it totalitarian bad individualism suits humans oppression is evil so what And that s right so what If that was all there was to Zamyatin s We it would have disappeared from the public eye by now lingering perhaps only in a few dusty college classrooms What makes We special is not dystopian society alone It s the amazing atmosphere Zamyatin creates through the pen of his protagonist a little formerly happy cog in the wheel with a few atavistic features and an unexpected development of an incurable condition a soul The writing so amazingly reflects the mental state of the confused man so fractured and frantic and stuttering and urgent and anxious and often disjointed laden with metaphors and unexpected emotions and full on scream of soul Because I live now not in our rational world but in the ancient one senseless the world of suare roots of minus one It s the strength of unexpected chaotic emotional outpouring and emotional breakdown from the protagonist running headfirst into the hitherto unknown to him wall of passion and jealousy and possessiveness with all the both lovely and frustrating humanity that follows You re afraid of it because it s stronger than you you hate it because you re afraid of it you love it because you can t master it You can only love something that refuses to be mastered It s the prominent in Russian literature motif of search for happiness and attempts to figure out the secret of this elusive happiness for all the soul search that leads to fewer answers than it inspires uestions So here I am in step with everyone now and yet I m still separate from everyone I am still trembling all over from the agitation I endured like a bridge after an ancient train has rumbled over it I am aware of myself And of course the only things that are aware of themselves and conscious of their individuality are irritated eyes cut fingers sore teeth A healthy eye finger tooth might as well not even be there Isn t it clear that individual consciousness is just sickness I read this book again It left me unsettled and confused it left me uneasy and for all this I love it Because it does what literature is meant to do to disuiet the soul And for this I love it ORIGINAL REVIEW FROM 2012 BASED ON THE MEMORY OF FIRST READINGS OF THIS NOVEL IN 2004 2005Zamyatin s masterfully written dystopian masterpiece predated and likely inspired the popular Western books that explored the similar themes Brave New World and Nineteen Eighty Four Written in 1920 before the Soviet Union even existed it predicted the Stalin and Brezhnev eras with terrifying foresight Evgeniy Zamyatin did not share the fascination with the new State and the glory of the Great October Socialist Revolution The only means of ridding man of crime is ridding him of freedom With his novel Zamyatin disagrees No wonder it was banned in the Soviet Union until late 1980s since one of his characters brings up the ultimate blasphemy There is no final revolution Revolutions are infinite At that time during the birth of the new world order that emphasized the good of the State over the good of individual cogs in the machine the beauty of uniformity of unity over individual variations Zamyatin described the hollowness that replacing soul and love with cold reason and logic and individuals with numbers would bring In this world everything is rationalized de individualized regimented and oppressively safe Even the leader the Benefactor is little but a slave to the State Now I no longer live in our clear rational world I live in the ancient nightmare world the world of suare roots of minus one Zamyatin s characters try to go against the great tide try to resist the State As a result at least for a short while his protagonist gets diagnosed with a serious medical condition developing a soul But fittingly for a dystopia there is no happy ending just a reader s faint hope that for some of them not all is lost I read this book in its original Russian so I really cannot comment on the uality of translation In Russian the writing is superb and the narrative voice is uniue and fascinating exaltingly sickeningly cheerful at the beginning and growing and confused as the story progresses I can only hope that the translations managed to capture at least some of that 5 stars

Thoughts If it was utterly up to me I d actually think about classing this as a utopia rather than a dystopia understanding that they re ultimately the same thing Living in glass houses is the most terrifying part of this novel I 330 is basically a manic pixie dream girl The commentary on the Russian Revolution and Socialism are heavy bro Zamyatin had a FASCINATING life that very much influences this book The writing style wasn t my thing It was by no means bad but it just wasn t my thingOn Comparing it to 1984 So the deal is that George Orwell absolutely admits that his book was inspired by this book and any person who has read them both will know that this is undoubtedly true Here are some of my observations We is about Humanity and 1984 is about Politics The stakes feel higher in 1984 I might be biased I m definitely biased but Orwell improved on certain things Room 101 general feelings of unrest the book line One of the best parts of 1984 is when Winston becomes a traitorous bastard and we didn t see that to the same extent in this novel The best part of 1984 is the last line and this last line was good but not as goodYou should read this srs
