We (Annotated): Science Fiction by Yevgeny Zamyatin

My Evgenija Zamjatina - znakovyj roman, s kotorogo oficial'no otschityvajut samo sushhestvovanie zhanra antiutopija. Dejstvie razvorachivaetsja priblizitel'no v tridcat' vtorom veke. Roman opisyvaet obshhestvo zhestkogo totalitarnogo kontrolja nad lichnost'ju. Zapreshhennyj v sovetskij period, on javljaetsja klassicheskim proizvedeniem ne tol'ko russkoj, no i mirovoj literatury HH veka, i pervoistochnikom romana 1984 Dzhordzha Orujella. Roman ob obshhestve ravnyh, v kotorom chelovecheskaja lichnost' svedena k lichnomu nomeru (imena i familii zameneny bukvami i nomerami, gosudarstvo kontroliruet absoljutno vse.
Posle razrushitel'noj dvuhsotletnej vojny pogibaet 98% procentov naselenija Zemli. Ostavshiesja ljudi, zhertvuja svoej lichnoj svobodoj i individual'nost'ju, sozdajut Edinoe gosudarstvo - oplot porjadka, edinenija i ravenstva. Shiller skazal: Ljubov' i golod pravjat mirom. Osnovateli Edinogo gosudarstva pokorili jetih vladyk: golod - neftjanoj pishhej, ljubov' - rozovymi biletami. Vse v jetom gorode racional'no i matematicheski tochno, mnozhestvo domov ogranicheno Zelenoj stenoj ot haosa okruzhajushhego irracional'nogo mira, a sami doma - matricy iz stekla, gde kazhdyj jelement, kazhdyj nomer, na vidu v svoej jachejke.
Vse unificirovano - odezhda i zhil'e, postupki, mysli i chuvstva. V gosudarstve, idejno osnovannom na neogranichennom povyshenii jekonomicheskoj jeffektivnosti, kul'te nauchnogo znanija i otricanii fantazii, pravit izbiraemyj na bezal'ternativnoj osnove Blagodetel', edinolichno reshajushhij sud'bu nomerov. U nomerov net sobstvennyh celej, net sem'i, net prochnyh svjazej, net dazhe ljubvi... No mozhno li polnost'ju vytravit' iz cheloveka zhazhdu svobody, poka on ostaetsja chelovekom?
Konec knigi... idealen. Delo v tom, chto na protjazhenii romana mashinochelovek D-503, postepenno stanovitsja nastojashhim, chuvstvujushhim, jemocional'nym chelovekom, takim obrazom - v centre romana dramatizm preobrazovanija racional'noj lichnosti v irracional'nuju, normal'nuju dlja nas s vami. No Zamjatin delaet sledujushhij shag, chtoby pokazat' ves' uzhas tvorjashhegosja on odnim roscherkom pera, prevrashhaet jetogo sformirovavshegosja, zhivogo cheloveka obratno v mashinu, sposobnuju holodno, dazhe s nekotorym udovol'stviem opisyvat', kak pytajut i ubivajut teh, kogo on ljubil. Kstati, o pobede revoljucionerov v knige i rechi net, poskol'ku gorozhane uspeshno soprotivljajutsja atakam ljudej iz-za steny, i mozhno predpolozhit', chto v Gorode vse ostanetsja tak, kak bylo. Odnako, roman i ne pronizan bezyshodnost'ju: zhenshhina glavnogo geroja s ego rebenkom zhivut gde-to snaruzhi, za Stenoj i, navernoe, schastlivy.
