Overview
*Note: Our summary is an accompaniment to "1984," not the novel itself. While it will greatly enhance your enjoyment and understanding of the book, it is not intended to stand in its place.* George Orwell's 1948 novel "1984" was at the time nothing more than one man's oft-criticized version of the future. The year has long since passed, but Orwell's work is as timely today as it ever was. His vision is so haunting that you have no choice but to believe every bit of it. The novel's power has spanned generations, and this summary helps you tap into that power with expert commentary on this classic piece of fiction. It is just a classic dystopian novel, or is there more to it? The debate has raged on for over 60 years, and each generation brings something else to the table. We help you explore the two sides of the fence, as some readers see "1984" as a tale about the dangers of totalitarianism, while others view it as a testament to the power of the human spirit. Winston Smith epitomizes that human spirit, as a man whose political nightmare holds him hostage, sometimes literally and sometimes figuratively. Watching Winston struggle to extract himself brings to mind situations in modern society that are all too similar. Wrap up this summary with a detailed analysis of the prevalent themes and motifs in "1984," including the inherent power of misinformation.
