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.

Descriere

Descriere de la o altă ediție sau format:

The Thought Police, Doublethink, Newspeak, Big Brother - 1984 itself: these terms and concepts have moved from the world of fiction into our everyday lives. They are central to our thinking about freedom and its suppression; yet they were newly created by George Orwell in 1949 as he conjured his dystopian vision of a world where totalitarian power is absolute. In this novel, continuously popular since its first publication, readers can explore the dark and extraordinary world he brought so fully to life.

The principal characters who lead us through that world are ordinary human beings like ourselves: Winston Smith and Julia, whose falling in love is also an act of rebellion against the Party. Opposing them are the massed powers of the state, which watches its citizens on all sides through technology now only too familiar to us. No-one is free from surveillance; the past is constantly altered, so that there is no truth except the most recent version; and Big Brother, both loved and feared, controls all.

Even the simple act of keeping a diary - as Winston does - is punishable by death. In Winston's battle to keep his freedom of thought, he has a powerful adversary in O'Brien, who uses fear and pain to enter his very thought processes. Does 2+2 = 4? Or is it 5? We find out in Room 101.

Nineteen Eighty-Four was Orwell's last novel; but the world he created is always with us, as successive generations of readers find within it a mirror for their own times and a warning for the future. Our edition also includes the following selection of Orwell's essays, column extracts and broadcasts: A Hanging; Spilling the Spanish Beans; Reviews of Jack London, The Iron Heel; H. G.

Wells, When the Sleeper Awakes; Aldous Huxley, Brave New World; Ernest Bramah, The Secret of the League ; England Your England; Looking Back on the Spanish War; Arthur Koestler; The Prevention of Literature; Politics and the English Language; Why I Write; Politics Vs Literature; Sir Walter Raleigh; The Three Super-States of the Future; Persecution of Writers in USSR; Literature and Totalitarianism; Imaginary Interview: George Orwell and Jonathan Swift

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.
