The last part of my paper consists of a short summary and some conclusions on the nature of totalitarianism and freedom. In his life-long struggle for freedom and against suppression by totalitarian regimes, Orwell is a good example for the connection between experience and its implementation in fictional literature. This experience of war and the following period, when he was persecuted by the Communists whom he has fought for, led Orwell to the deep believe and conviction that there is no justification for totalitarianism.
This criticism was the reason for him to deal with the problem of absolute power in his books. A vision of the world in is created where the world is divided into three states: Eastasia, Eurasia and Oceania. The setting of the novel is in Oceania or, to be more precise, in airstrip one, located in the area we know as England. The main action takes place in London. Winston Smith is disgusted with his oppressed life and secretly longs to join the fabled Brotherhood, a supposed group of underground rebels intent on overthrowing the government.
Winston meets Julia and they secretly fall in love and have an affair, something which is considered a crime.
One day, while walking home, Winston encounters O'Brien, an inner party member, who gives Winston his address. Winston had exchanged glances with O'Brien before and had dreams about him giving him the impression that O'Brien was a member of the Brotherhood.
O'Brien is actually a faithful member of the Inner-Party and this is actually a trap for Winston, a trap that O'Brien has been cleverly setting for seven years. Winston and Julia are sent to the Ministry of Love which is a sort of rehabilitation centre for criminals accused of thoughtcrime. There, Winston is separated from Julia, and tortured until his beliefs coincide with those of the Party.
Winston denounces everything he believed him, even his love for Julia, and is released back into the public where he wastes his days at the Chestnut Tree drinking gin. The other states Eurasia and Eastasia are also described as totalitarian systems, but no detailed information is given in the novel.
It is also described an oligarchical collectivism. Its members consist of the inner party and the outer party. He has absolute authority and his word is the law. I would recommend it to some, who have the patience to read through this book and a more futuristic dystopian type.
There were a few parts that were kind of unnecessary and more like fillers. Did anyone actually review this iBook before it was published? Besides very trivial spelling errors, what appear to be page numbers start to creep into the text mid-way through the book.
It's almost as if the publisher put little to no effort into porting the paper copy to an electronic format. I do call this a "port" and a shoddy one at that because it bears the unmistakable marks of someone shoving a paper book into a photo-copier again, I cite the page numbers embedded in the text.
This is one of my favorite books of all time. The tale is gripping, suspenseful, and and an emotionally stirring ride.
The characters are relatable and the setting is dark and foreboding. The book has one of the best endings ever, and the conclusion will both satisfy and tug your heartstrings. More Books by George Orwell.
