WAR IS PEACE
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH Winston Smith is a good worker. He supports the Party. He is good at his job rewriting history to Government specification. Big Brother watches him, but there is nothing to see. Winston's struggle against the totalitarian world he inhabits is a closely guarded secret. It exists only in his mind until he begins a secret love affair with Julia, a fellow worker. Is this enough to push him to revolution? Or is it the beginning of his downfall? A masterwork of dystopian fiction, Nineteen Eighty-Four is harrowingly prescient, and its impact has stretched around the globe. With a new introduction by political editor and writer Ian Dunt, this brand new edition of a science fiction classic is a must-have for any collector.,

Notă biografică

George Orwell wurde als Eric Arthur Blair am 25. Juni 1903 in Motihari in Britisch-Indien geboren und starb am 21. Januar 1950 in London. Er war ein englischer Schriftsteller und Journalist.

Orwell wuchs als zweites von drei Kindern eines Kolonialbeamten ab seinem zweiten Lebensjahr in England auf. Seine Mutter war mit den Kindern, jedoch ohne den Vater, von Indien nach England zurückgekehrt. Über seinen Internatsbesuch und die damit verbundenen schlechten Erlebnisse schrieb Orwell später das Essay mit dem ironischen Titel "Such, Such Were the Joys". Später ging er auf das renommierte Eton College, für das er aufgrund seiner Leistungen ein Stipendium erhielt.

1924 trat Orwell freiwillig in den Dienst der Indian Imperial Police in Burma. Da er mit deren Methoden jedoch nicht einverstanden war, legte er 1927 sein Amt nieder und widmete sich dem Schreiben. Während seiner Jahre in London und Paris musste er sich mit Hilfsjobs durchschlagen und war zeitweise obdachlos. Seine Erfahrungen verarbeitete er in seinem Romandebüt "Down and Out in Paris and London" 1933.

1936 heiratete Orwell und zog auf Seiten der Marxistischen Arbeiterpartei in den Spanischen Bürgerkrieg. Verwundet kehrte er ein Jahr später wieder zurück und arbeitete als Buchkritiker und Kriegsberichterstatter. Eines seiner wichtigsten Werke, die Fabel "Animal Farm", erschien 1945. Im selben Jahr verstarb seine Frau.

1947 zog Orwell an die Westküste Schottlands in die Einsamkeit, wo er mit der Dystopie "Nineteen Eighty-Four" über den totalitären Überwachungsstaat sein bekanntestes Werk verfasste. 1950 heiratete er, bereits schwer an Tuberkulose erkrankt, in einem Londoner Krankenhaus ein zweites Mal und verstarb dort wenige Monate später, am 21. Januar 1950, im Alter von 46 Jahren.

Recenzii

Nineteen Eighty-Four is a remarkable book; as a virtuoso literary performance it has a sustained brilliance that has rarely been matched in other works of its genre…It is as timely as the label on a poison bottle.” –New York Herald Tribune

“A profound, terrifying, and wholly fascinating book…Orwell’s theory of power is developed brilliantly.” –The New Yorker

“A book that goes through the reader like an east wind, cracking the skin…Such are the originality, the suspense, the speed of writing, and withering indignation that it is impossible to put the book down.” –V. S. Pritchett

“Orwell’s novel escorts us so quietly, so directly, and so dramatically from our own day to the fate which may be ours in the future, that the experience is a blood-chilling one.” –Saturday Review

Textul de pe ultima copertă

While the totalitarianism that provoked George Orwell into writing 'Nineteen Eighty-Four' seems to be passing into oblivion, his harrowing, cautionary tale of a man trapped in a political nightmare has had the opposite fate, and its relevance and power to disturb our complacency seem to grow decade by decade.
