  • 摘要:The classical dystopias by Yevgeny Zamyatin,Aldous Huxley and George Orwell inspired numerous works of basically the same type. This is to say that the model was assumed in a progressively free manner,which even made possible the reactivation of features specific to Renaissance and/or Enlightenment utopia. Quite often,these works have housed the meeting of the three main forms of utopian fiction and have thus substantially contributed to the success of the dystopian configuration. As a matter of fact,dystopia has known a huge success since its very emergence in the first decades of the 20th century and irrespective of the exemplary or non-exemplary aspect of its illustrations. To consider only the historical events,it is not difficult to understand why it was and still is preferred to ‘optimistic’ utopia. Yet some authors do have the aesthetic courage to take the latter as a model and their performance should be praised all the more. Such is the case with Ioana Pârvulescu and her Life Begins on Friday. The novel is largely a utopia of the old type,but what’s really interesting is,on the one hand,that the action is set in a past time and in a familiar world,on the other hand,that a past real world may serve as the utopian counterpart of the present one.
