Event: Russia Literature: Utopia/Dystopia

Tuesday August 22, 2017
6:30 PM until 8:00 PM


~~Join us as Professor Dr. Paul Karpuk, CCSU     English Department, leads this discussion of the themes of Utopia / Dystopia in Russian  Literature. Please read Zamiatin's We and Olesha's Envy in preparation for this lecture

We (1924) is set in a futuristic, authoritarian   dystopia.  It was so incendiary when published that the Soviet Union blocked its publication  until 1988.  Envy  (1927)  explores a period of confusion and hypocrisy, as Communist society adopts Capitalistic policies.
