Andrei Platonov ANDREI PLATONOV (1899-1951) was born in Voronezh. 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. His position within the Soviet literary world was equally fraught with contradictions. Some of his works were published — and immediately subjected to fierce criticism; others were accepted for publication — yet never in fact published.
