Quick Reference


Russian prose writer, critic, and playwright. He is best known for his anti‐Utopian novel We (1920–1), which was influenced by H. G. Wells and in turn influenced Orwell. Zamyatin introduced many English writers to the Soviet Union, but eventually emigrated to Paris, partly as a result of the vicious campaign against him occasioned by the publication (abroad) of We in the late 1920s.
