Abstract

This chapter describes how two Russian dystopian novels, Evgenii Zamiatin&#8217;s <i>We</i> (1921) and Vladimir Voinovich&#8217;s <i>Moscow 2042</i> (1987) reached their readers through translations. The analysis centers on similarities and differences in the presentation of the dystopian world in modern and post-modern discourses and their translations into English. The author argues that dystopia, a genre well established in the Western literary tradition, encounters many more difficulties in reaching the readership of the target culture in its postmodern form.
