About Andrei Platonov

  • Andrei Platonov (Russian: ?????´? ?????´???, IPA: [?n'dr?ej p??'ton?f]; 28 August [O.S.
  • 16 August] 1899 – 5 January 1951) was the pen name of Andrei Platonovich Klimentov (Russian: ?????´? ?????´????? ?????´????), a Soviet Russian writer, philosopher, playwright, and poet, whose works anticipate existentialism.
  • Although Platonov was a Communist, most of his works were banned in his own lifetime for their skeptical attitude toward collectivization and other Stalinist policies, as well as for its experimental, avant-garde form.
  • His famous works include the novels The Foundation Pit (????????) and Chevengur (????????). New York Review Books reissued a collection of Platonov's word including the novella Soul (Dzhan), the short story The Return, and six other stories in 2007.
  • This was followed by a reissue of The Foundation Pit in 2009, and Happy Moscow, an unfinished novel that was left unpublished in Platonov's lifetime, in 2012.
