The Foundation Pitis Platonov's most overtly political book, one written in direct response to the staggering brutalities of Stalinist collectivization. It is also a literary masterpiece. Like Kafkaperhaps the only twentieth-century writer to whom he can be usefully comparedPlatonov finds a new way of writing, a new approach to language that recasts the terrifying realities of modernity in a deeply disturbing, yet strangely spiritual light. Robert Chandler's new translation ofThe Foundation Pitis the first to reflect the recent definitive text of the work as established by Pushkin House in Moscow. For the first time, readers of English have full access to one of the defining works of modern Russian literature.
