    Many people value the tangible over the complex. However, viewing the world solely through this definite lens is an oversimplification. Yevgeny Zamyatin’s We explores this flaw in a society founded solely upon its government’s definition of the “ultimate happiness.” To reach utopia, it eliminates inefficiency, crime, and despondency, by promoting state-led happiness. Despite these admirable goals, the One State’s methods sacrifice freedom, individualism, and, ironically, happiness itself, ultimately

    We, written by Yevgeny Zamyatin in 1921 as a futurist depiction of protagonist D-503 living in a dystopian society controlled during the Russian revolution of 1917. It is the story of a head engineer writing in his journal who is living under the control of the benefactor, following laws in order to have the most efficient state and infallible happiness. The citizens are not given names they are given number and every hour of each of their lives are directed by a table. Zamyatin constructs the motif

    In Evgeny Zamyatin’s dystopian novel We, readers encounter numerous Biblical images and references—images of Paradise and references to Christ—that form two independent patterns and allow the novel to function on two different levels. The first level explores how the characters themselves, the Numbers of OneState, view the events in the novel, especially the rebellious actions of the main female character, I-330. The second level, however, functions on an extra-textual level and reflects how readers

    classics, I feel like I've gotten my fill of utopian literature, now thankfully out of style. However, in reading Yevgeny Zamyatin's "We" (1921) I filled in a gap in my knowledge of dystopian literature. I've read "1984" (1949) and "Brave New World" (1932) of course, and also "The Machine Stops" by E. M. Forester (1909 -- a brilliant short story, if you're interested). "We" stands out both for its power and also for its context: an early supporter of the Communist revolution in Russia, Zamyatin quickly

    In Yevgeny Zamyatin’s We, punctuation is one of the most used ways that characters are developed, specifically D-503. In D-503’s journals, he often uses questions which he asks to himself. D-503 also often uses dashes, the dashes often are used to replace comma’s; however, the most important use of punctuation in We, is D-503’s use of ellipses. He often uses these ellipses because of hesitation or to continue the end of a thought. In my essay I will show how these forms of punctuation will develop

    A major theme in Jamaica Kincaid’s A Small Place and Yevgeny Zamyatin’s We is collectivity, the state of being collected into one. Both texts are notable examples of such and show the different types of collectiveness as the point of view shifts from tourist to native, rationalist to anti-rationalist. In A Small Place, Antigua’s identity as a nation varies when observed from two different perspectives. Tourists view Antigua as a utopic resort that serves as an escape from the dullness of a routinely

    Angelina Correa Humanities 205 Mr. Farson March 10, 2014 Essay on ”We the Living” by Ayn Rand In the novel, “We the Living” by Ayn Rand, the setting takes place in Petrograd, after the civil war.
