Andrei Platonov (Андрей Платонов, 28 August 1899 – 5 January 1951) was the pen name of Andrei Platonovich Klimentov (Андрей Платонович Климентов), a Soviet author whose works anticipate existentialism. Although Platonov was a Communist, his works were banned in his own lifetime for their skeptical attitude toward collectivization and other Stalinist policies. His famous works include the novels The Foundation Pit [Котлован] and Chevengur [Чевенгур].
