  • "In "Nineteen eighty-four", one of the 20th century's great myth-makers takes a cold look at the future. Orwell's study of individual struggling - or not struggling - against totalitarianism remains a salutary lesson in any society."@en
  • "Novel by George Orwell, published in 1949 as a warning about the menaces of totalitarianism. The novel is set in an imaginary future world that is dominated by three perpetually warring totalitarian police states. The book's hero, Winston Smith, is a minor party functionary in one of these states. His longing for truth and decency leads him to secretly rebel against the government. Smith has a love affair with a like-minded woman, but they are both arrested by the Thought Police. The ensuing imprisonment, torture, and reeducation of Smith are intended not merely to break him physically or make him submit but to root out his independent mental existence and his spiritual dignity. Orwell's warning of the dangers of totalitarianism made a deep impression on his contemporaries and upon subsequent readers, and the book's title and many of its coinages, such as NEWSPEAK, became bywords for modern political abuses."@en
  • "Winston Smith and Julia join the underground opposition to the totalitarian government that would suffocate individuality."

  • "Eternal warfare, the price of bleak prosperity in satire of totalitarian barbarism."
  • ""Nineteen Eighty-Four" revealed George Orwell as one of the twentieth century's greatest mythmakers. While the totalitarian system that provoked him into writing it has since passed into oblivion, his harrowing cautionary tale of a man trapped in a political nightmare has had the opposite fate: its relevance and power to disturb our complacency seem to grow decade by decade. In Winston Smith's desperate struggle to free himself from an all-encompassing, malevolent state, Orwell zeroed in on tendencies apparent in every modern society, and made vivid the universal predicament of the individual."
  • "Een kritisch partijlid van de totalitaire socialistische staat, die beheerst wordt door Big Brother, begaat een misdrijf door van een vrouw te houden."
  • "Winston rebels against Big Brother, but the State has anticipated everything, and Winston is brainwashed back into perfect conformity."
  • "The novel depicts Smith's heroic search for an underground movement in revolt against the nightmare that is the State. He now works in the Ministry of Truth falsifying records."@en
  • "The novel depicts Smith's heroic search for an underground movement in revolt against the nightmare that is the State. He now works in the Ministry of Truth falsifying records."
  • "1984 depicts a gray world dominated by Big Brother and its vast network of agents, quashing freedom in a totalitarian world, where news is manufactured according to the authorities' will and people live by rote. Dissidents are disciplined into being willing tools of their masters. Winston Smith lives in this social system where surveillance, brainwashing, and execution are the state's tools for erasing personal will. His foray into passion ends with his arrest by the Thought Police and challenges him to be a hero."
  • "A world famous satire in which the world is divided into three parts, Oceania, Eastasia, and Eurasia, all at war. In Oceania the Party has created a totalitarian state that annihilates all opposition."@en
  • "Eternal warfare is the price of bleak prosperity in this satire of totalitarian barbarism."

  • "Written in 1948, 1984 was George Orwell's chilling prophecy about the future. And while 1984 has come and gone, Orwell's narrative is timelier than ever. 1984 presents a startling and haunting vision of the world, so powerful that it is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the power of this novel, its hold on the imaginations of multiple generations of readers, or the resiliency of its admonitions--a legacy that seems only to grow with the passage of time."
  • "This is a novel which depicts man's plight under totalitarianism. It has been described as one of the most powerful commentaries on what life is like without freedom."@en
  • "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 ... -- Publisher's description."@en

  • "Hidden away in the Record Departement of the sprawling Ministry of Truth, Winston Smith skilfully rewrites the past to suit the needs of the Party. Yet he inwardly rebels against the totalitarian world he lives in, which demands absolute obedience and controls him through the all-seeing telescreens and he watchful eye of Big Brother, symbolic head of the Party. In his longing for truth and liberty, Smith begins a secret love affair with a fellow-worker, Julia, but soon discovers the true price of freedom is betrayal."

Party Member: Male-- Face-less, mind-less, a flesh-and-blood robot with a push-button brain, you're denied love by law, taught hate by the flick of a switch. Party Member: Female-- A member of the Anti-Sex League from birth, your duty will be to smother all human emotion, and your children might not be your husband's!"@en
