  • 摘要:The utopian well-being is traditionally associated with a uniform, serene smile, while laughter – inner or outer – hardly occurs. When this rule is broken, it means that the ‘discovered’ worlds are no longer worth admiring. One would certainly not expect to find any such expression or fact in dystopias, while actually the first novelistic work of the kind is filled with them. Most of the characters in Yevgeny Zamyatin’s We resort to smile and laughter to express their attitudes or to make their moves, but deliberately or not they manage only to harass the protagonist and narrator. At best, he gives them a partial reading, while they do more than simply mark his Golgotha. Eventually, laughter is no longer heard in the One State and smile is banned, but in the last scene D-503 still has one on his face: that is no contradiction, everything that was personal has just been removed from it and its holder, as he has been saved from himself for good.
