Nineteen Eighty-Four

The Annotated Edition

Penguin Modern Classics

(2)

This is the essential edition of the essential book of modern times, 1984, now annotated for students with an introduction by D. J. Taylor.

Ever since its publication in 1948, George Orwell's terrifying vision of a totalitarian regime where Big Brother controls its citizens like 'a boot stamping on a human face' has become a touchstone for human freedom, and one of the most widely-read books in the world. In this new annotated edition Orwell's biographer D. J. Taylor elucidates the full meaning of this timeless satire, explaining contemporary references in the novel, placing it in the context of Orwell's life, elaborating on his extraordinary use of language and explaining the terms such as Newspeak, Doublethink and Room 101 that have become familiar phrases today.

Portrait
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.

"Big Brother Is Watching You" Winston Smith lives in a totalitarian world ruled by a tyrannical regime that watches its citizens 24/7. Questioning Big Brother, disagreeing with the Inner Party or simply addressing the fact that history is being altered again and again will ultimately cost you your life. Despite knowing this Winston enters a secret relationship with Julia, a fellow free-thinker, and together they try to join the Brotherhood, an organisation rumored to work against the regime. Of course, their plan doesn't remain undiscovered for long and both of them soon learn, what happens to people in notorious Room 101... Since its publication in 1949 "1984" has lost nothing of its topicality nor its relevance. I am truly stunned by George Orwell's visionary novel and glad that I finally picked it up. Because of the detailed world-building and extensive explainations this book is quite a slow read. Despite that I could hardly put it down. "1984" is interesting, shocking and definitely thought-provoking. This novel is a must-read for lovers of classics as well as fans of the distopian genre.
