Lobskaya Hill

An interpretation of a story by the brilliant Andrey Platonov, translated by Robert & Elizabeth Chandler and Angela Livingstone. Chandler writes:

“In his mature work Platonov seems to delight in eliding every conceivable boundary—between animal and human, between the animate and the inanimate, between souls and machines, between life and death. He was almost certainly an atheist, yet his work is full of religious symbolism and imbued with deep religious feeling. He was a passionate supporter of the 1917 Revolution and remained sympathetic to the dream that gave birth to it, yet few people have written more searingly of its catastrophic consequences.” (Read Chandler’s full article here.)
