Beschreibung

Renowned urban artist Shepard Fairey's new look for Orwell's classic dystopian tale

One of Britain's most popular novels, George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four is set in a society terrorised by a totalitarian ideology propagated by The Party.

Winston Smith works for the Ministry of Truth in London, chief city of Airstrip One. Big Brother stares out from every poster, the Thought Police uncover every act of betrayal. When Winston finds love with Julia, he discovers that life does not have to be dull and deadening, and awakens to new possibilities. Despite the police helicopters that hover and circle overhead, Winston and Julia begin to question the Party; they are drawn towards conspiracy. Yet Big Brother will not tolerate dissent - even in the mind. For those with original thoughts they invented Room 101. . .

Nineteen Eighty-Four is George Orwell's terrifying vision of a totalitarian future in which everything and everyone is slave to a tyrannical regime. The novel also coined many new words and phrases which regular appear in popular culture, such as 'Big Brother', 'thoughtcrime', 'doublethink' and 'Newspeak'.

His final masterpiece. Enthralling and indispensible for understanding modern history Timothy Garton Ash

Orwell, George
Eric Arthur Blair (1903-1950), better known by his pen-name, George Orwell, was born in India, where his father worked for the Civil Service. An author and journalist, Orwell was one of the most prominent and influential figures in twentieth-century literature. His unique political allegory Animal Farm was published in 1945, and it was this novel, together with the dystopia of Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949), which brought him world-wide fame. His novels and non-fiction include Burmese Days, Down and Out in Paris and London, The Road to Wigan Pier and Homage to Catalonia.

Ein Buch für alle
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 10.07.2020

Schmerzhaft schön. Nicht für zerbrechliche Seelen. Soll man aber definitiv lesen.

Ein Klassiker
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden aus Walzbachtal am 04.06.2020
Bewertet: Einband: Taschenbuch

Sehr zu empfehlen, aber teilweise ist die Thematik des totalitären Staates beängstigend. Über Romantik, Brutalität und entspannender Erzählung ist alles in dem Buch enthalten.

Great book
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 02.11.2017

A must have book in a collection. The book itself has not the best quality, therefore 4 stars.
