Yevgeny Ivanovich Zamyatin (1884-1937) or referred to as Eugene Zamyatin received popularity as a Russian book writer. He focused on the political satire and science fiction genres. He received significant popularity for his book We published in 1921. The story displays a dystopian future police government. Zamyatin originated from the Bolshevik environment, and he became upset with the Communist Party. He refused to agree with the Soviet Union’s October Revolution approach and the Soviet censorship board banned the book We in 1921. Zamyatin smuggled the book for publication in the West.

The Union of Soviet Writers requested Zamyatin’s removal from his home country. Zamyatin studied naval engineering in Saint Petersburg between 1902 to 1908 and joined the Bolshevik regime. He became arrested in 1905. Exiled to live in Siberia, he escaped and returned to his country to live illegally. He moved to Grand Duchy of Finland in 1906 to complete his studies, and the second arrest happened in 1911. In 1913 he published Uyezdnoye (A Provincial Tale). Zamyatin experiences resistance after his Na Kulichkakh (At the world’s end) publication.
