Living the opposite of a perfect world is humanity’s worst nightmare and in these works, it becomes a reality. The authors warn of the possibility of living it in the future, providing a critical view of their societies.

Dystopias originated in the late 19th century but gained momentum as a genre during the 20th century with the publication of dystopian novels such as Aldous Huxley‘s “Brave New World”, “1984”, and George Orwell’s “Animal Farm”. 

Dystopian novels usually present a world that is apparently perfect and in order, but which hides enormous repression, annulment of individual freedom, alienation from reality, and dehumanization, sometimes taken to the extreme.

Featured Dystopian Novels

1) We

Author: Yevgeny Zamyatin

We is a dystopian novel set in a future society where surveillance and repression by the state are total. It is one of the first works of the dystopian subgenre and inspired, among other novels, George Orwell’s 1984.

We arose from the author’s experiences in Russia before and after the Russian Revolution of 1917. He had been imprisoned first by the Tsarist regime in 1906 and then by the Bolsheviks in 1922.

It also recounts the experiences of his work as a naval engineer in Newcastle, in the shipyards on the River Tyne, during the First World War. The novel is clearly critical of the Soviet regime, and may also refer to Mussolini’s fascism.

2) The Trial

Author: Franz Kafka

The Trial is a novel written by Franz Kafka between 1914 and 1915 and published posthumously in 1925.

One of his best-known works, tells the story of Josef K., a man arrested and tried by a remote and inaccessible authority. The nature of his crime was not revealed either to him or to the reader.

Heavily influenced by Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment and The Brothers Karamazov, Kafka even went so far as to call Dostoevsky a blood relative. Like Kafka’s other novels, the trial was never completed, although it includes a chapter that seems to bring the story to an intentionally abrupt end.

3) The Iron Heel

Author: Jack London

The Iron Heel is the name given by the revolutionary worker Ernest Everhard to the government that the industrial Oligarchy built in the 20th century.

The novel is presented as a semi-autobiographical text written by a protagonist of the same. It is the memoirs of Avis Everhard, wife of revolutionary leader Ernest Everhard, recounting in first person the initial abortive attempts to destroy the Iron Heel.

London’s novel criticizes the harsh working-class conditions that existed at the time and were worsened by the present state of ungovernability by the world’s capitalist governments. Rather than being a review of the future, it is a prophecy.
