Yevgeny Zamyatin (1884-1937)


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yevgeny_Zamyatin

Yevgeny Ivanovich Zamyatin was a Russian author of science fiction and political satire. Despite having been a prominent Old Bolshevik, Zamyatin was deeply disturbed by the policies pursued by the CPSU following the October Revolution. He is most famous for his 1921 novel We, a story set in a dystopian future police state.

We (Russian: Мы) is a dystopian novel by Yevgeny Zamyatin completed in 1921. It was written in response to the author's personal experiences during the Russian revolution of 1905, the Russian revolution of 1917, his life in the Newcastle suburb of Jesmond, and his work in the Tyne shipyards during the First World War. Through We, Yevgeny Zamyatin has directly inspired George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four. Ayn Rand's Anthem, Ursula K. Le Guin's The Dispossessed, Aldous Huxley's Brave New World and Kurt Vonnegut's Player Piano.
