Summary
R.U.R.-- written in 1920 -- garnered worldwide acclaim for its author and popularized the word "robot." Mass produced, efficient, and servile labor, Capek's robots remember everything, but lack creative thought, and the Utopian life they provide ultimately lacks meaning. When the robots revolt, killing all but one of their masters, they must atttempt to learn the secret of self-duplication
