Excerpts from We
- Yevgeny Zamyatin
We is a work of dystopian fiction set in a future police state by Russian writer Yevgeny Ivanovich Zamyatin (1884-1937). In 1921, We became the first work banned by the Soviet Union’s censorship board; Zamyatin managed to have his work smuggled to the West and later lived out the rest of his life in exile. This novel is thought to have inspired Brave New World and 1984.Pair “When I Heard the Learn’d Astronomer” with “Excerpts from We” and ask students to compare these attitudes to math, science, and nature. How would the poem’s narrator react to life in D-503’s world? And vice versa?

Yes. Should We Fix The Weather? Hmmm” with “When I Heard the Learn’d Astronomer” and ask students to consider what is lost in the development of technology.
