Overview

A classic of socialist realism, Cement became a model for Soviet fiction in the decades following its publication in the early 1920s. Gleb, a soldier hero, returns from the revolution to a world in transition, as demonstrated by the reorganization of the local cement factory for the massive national effort. His wife, Dasha, is now a leader of the Women’s Section of the Communist Pary, an activist in a society where women are suddenly men’s equals. Gleb finds that he cannot easily pick up the threads of their old relationship or adjust to this new social order.
