We is a dystopian novel completed in 1921 as a response to the authors personal experiences during the Russian revolution of 1905, the Russian revolution of 1917, and his work as a Marine Engineer in the Tyne shipyards during the First World WarMoreWe is a dystopian novel completed in 1921 as a response to the authors personal experiences during the Russian revolution of 1905, the Russian revolution of 1917, and his work as a Marine Engineer in the Tyne shipyards during the First World War (where he saw the collectivization of labour on a large scale).At some point, it was an origin of a controversy between authors George Orwell (Nineteen Eighty Four), and Aldous Huxley (Brave New World). Orwell insinuated Brave New World was partly derived from We, charges that Huxley vehemently denied ( Orwell thought Huxley was lying).Kurt Vonnegut said that in writing Player Piano (1952), he cheerfully ripped off the plot of Brave New World, whose plot had been cheerfully ripped off from Yevgeny Zamyatins We.We is set in the future. D-503 lives in the One State, an urban nation constructed almost entirely of glass, which allows the secret police/spies to inform on and supervise the public more easily. One thousand years after the One States conquest of the entire world, the spaceship Integral is being built in order to invade and conquer extraterrestrial planets. Meanwhile, the projects chief engineer, D-503, begins a journal that he intends to be carried upon the completed spaceship.
