1984 AND ANIMAL FARM GEORGE ORWELL 1984: 1984 is a popular novel authored by British writer George Orwell and published in year 1949. The story of 1984 is set in an imaginary place called Airstrip One. This Airstrip One is actually the Britain. The system of governance in this territory is one oligarchy by inert elites of dictator government. This kind of social-scientific socialism is known by the name of Ingsoc in a language invented and patronized by the totalitarianist government. However, this new invented language is pretty much off the regular or popular one's still its name sounds logically right being simply called newspeak. Airstrip One which is a territory of greater state of Oceania offers similar living conditions (personal and Social) to the one offered by the greater Oceania or rest of the world. Personal thinking has been made a crime and omnipresent government surveillance, thought manipulation, and perpetual war are common traits found in a territory. ANIMAL FARM: A highly claimed novel penned by George Orwell that largely focuses on the Russian revolution and the consequences followed thereafter. Animal Farm's success can be understood by the facts that the book has been placed at the highest spots once and again throughout the later 20th century and also in the early 21st.
George Orwell holds a unique place in contemporary English literature. He used facts and his own observation and when there was no actual reporting to be done, invention took over, as in Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four, and his clear vision, realistic deduction and profound understanding of human behaviour enabled him to reach the inner recesses of the reader's mind and startle him to reflection and self-examination. He said that one of his motives for writing was a 'desire to see things as they are, to find true facts and store them up for the use of posterity... In a peaceful age I might have written ornate or merely descriptive books... When I sit down to write a book, I do not say to myself "I am going to produce a work of art." I write it because there is some lie I want to expose, some fact to which I want to draw attention, and my initial intention is to get a hearing.'
Analyzes the historical context of "Animal Farm" and examines Orwell's political allegory in relation to Marxism, the Russian Revolution, and the Cold War.
This is a classic tale of humanity awash in totalitarianism. A farm is taken over by its overworked, mistreated animals. With flaming idealism and stirring slogans, they set out to create a paradise of progress, justice, and equality. First published during the epoch of Stalinist Russia, today it is clear that wherever and whenever freedom is attacked, and under whatever banner, the cutting clarity and savage comedy of Orwell's masterpiece is a message still ferociously fresh.
It is difficult now to recall the enormous impact that George Orwell's classic dystopia, Nineteen Eighty-Four, had on the psyche of the western world. Written by a dying man in the grimmest of circumstances, the novel was intended as both a warning against totalitarianism and the debasement of language, and as a reaction to Orwell's personal experiences with English socialism and World War II. Clearly, "1984" has turned out differently than Orwell depicted. Yet the power of the novel remains undiminished: it continues to scare and enlighten future generations of readers nearly a half century after its original publication. Well-known scholar Robert Plank provides a psychological examination of the roots of Nineteen Eighty-Four, and the curious parallels between the book and its antecedents, including the film Citizen Kane, the novels of Dostoevsky and Kafka, the philosophy of Whorf, Orwell's own life and works, and many other obvious and hidden influences. Complete with chronology, notes, bibliographies, and index.
George Orwell wrote many essays and political pamphlets, yet most know him for his fable Animal Farm and his dystopian novel 1984. The essays in this enhanced Bloom's Modern Critical Views volume offer precise commentary on Orwell's p
April, 1984. Winston Smith, thinks a thought, starts a diary, and falls in love. But Big Brother is watching him, and the door to Room 101 can swing open in the blink of an eye. Its ideas have become our ideas, and Orwells fiction is often said to be our reality. The definitive book of the 20th century is re-examined in a radical new adaptation exploring why Orwells vision of the future is as relevant as ever.
