Andrei Platonov (1899-1951) published under the pen name Andrei Platonovich Klimentov. He received popularity as a Soviet Russian book writer, poet, and philosopher. He displayed scepticism towards Stalin’s philosophies and policies. Some of his famous publications include The Foundation Pit and Chevengur. He contributed towards local periodicals, for example, Zheleznyi put (Railroad) and Voronezhskaia Kommuna. Soul and Other Novels became translated in English during 2007 as well as Foundation Pit in 2009 and Happy Moscow in 2012. Platonov’s legacy aligns with earlier Russian book writers, for example, Fyodor Dostoevsky. Diverse influences identified in his books relate to ancient philosophers and Christian symbolism.
