ABOUT THE BOOK
Few novels have influenced the way generations of readers shaped their understanding of society as much as George Orwell’s 1984, or added as many terms to the English lexicon: Big Brother, doublethink, Room 101, and thoughtcrime, to name a few. Even the term “Orwellian” invokes an immediate sense of caution against a repressive totalitarian regime who monitors our every move and manipulates the masses for its own gain.
Published by British publisher Secker and Warburg in 1949, only one year before the author’s death, 1984 is one of the most popular English novels of all time and has been translated into over 65 languages.
In 2005, Time Magazine listed 1984 as one of the best English-language novels since 1923.
According to banned-books.org.uk, the novel was banned in the USSR for its criticisms of Stalin’s regime. It was also banned in Florida for its communist and sexual content.
