Overview
In a world where dystopian novels are all the rage, George Orwell's "1984" stands as the definitive work. This study guide details the totality of totalitarianism, as you watch middle-aged Winston Smith try to escape from under the oppressive thumb of the Party. Big Brother is watching, controlling the thoughts and actions of everyone, thanks to 24-hour monitoring and the use of tattling children who are encouraged to report parents that speak out of line. As the main character in "1984," Winston is not convinced; he's hopeful of a way out. He is a complex character, and this study guide throws you directly into his mind as you go along for the ride. Orwell's "1984" begins with Winston doing what he does every day at his job: changing past newspaper records to ensure they match the latest "truths" set forth by the Party. Winston reluctantly endorses the Party's slogan, "He who controls the past, controls the future." He doesn't buy it though, so he makes it his mission to expose the group as the fraud that it is, even though he isn't old enough to remember "the good old days." Beside him is Julia, a woman who is equally at odds with how things are. As a testament to just how deep our study guide goes, we not only present you with potential quiz questions for each chapter, we also offer essay topics and multiple ideas to help you answer them.
