9780140817744: Penguin Student Edition Nineteen Eighty Four (Penguin Student Editions)

Hidden away in the Record Department of the sprawling Ministry of Truth, Winston Smith skilfully rewrites the past to suit the needs of the Party. Yet he inwardly rebels against the totalitarian world he lives in, which demands absolute obedience and controls him through the all-seeing telescreens and the watchful eye of Big Brother, symbolic head of the Party. In his longing for truth and liberty, Smith begins a secret love affair with a fellow-worker Julia, but soon discovers the true price of freedom is betrayal.

Review:

Among the seminal texts of the 20th century, Nineteen Eighty-Four is a rare work that grows more haunting as its futuristic purgatory becomes more real. Published in 1949, the book offers political satirist George Orwell's nightmare vision of a totalitarian, bureaucratic world and one poor stiff's attempt to find individuality. The brilliance of the novel is Orwell's prescience of modern life--the ubiquity of television, the distortion of the language--and his ability to construct such a thorough version of hell. Required reading for students since it was published, it ranks among the most terrifying novels ever written.

Book Description Book Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: Penguin UK | Das Wort "Big brother ist watching you!" ist allgemein bekannt. Es ist Synonym für den perfekten Überwachungsstaat, für das Ende jeder Individualität und Menschlichkeit, für das Eindringen eines Herrschaftsbereichs in die Intimsphäre und sogar in die Gedanken geworden. Mit "1984", seinem letzten Roman, den George Orwell 1948 kurz vor seinem Tod veröffentlichte, wurde der Verfasser der wohl bekanntesten Schreckens-Utopie des 20. Jahrhunderts populär. Die Anti-Utopie, eingebettet in die totalitären Erfahrungen des Stalinismus wie auch des Faschismus in Spanien und des Nationalismus in Deutschland, aber auch des britischen Imperialismus, muss als Absage an jedwede Form von Totalitarismus gesehen werden. Orwell verstand das Buch ebenso wie seine Satire "Farm der Tiere" als Negativfolie für einen demokratischen Sozialismus. Das Jahr 1984 ist zwar vergangen, ohne dass sich die Schreckensvisionen erfüllt hätten, an Aktualität hat dieses Werk trotzdem kein bisschen verloren. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 243 gr | 352 pp. Bookseller Inventory # K9780140817744
