One of Britain's most popular novels, George Orwell's dystopian tale Nineteen Eighty-Four is set in a society terrorised by a totalitarian ideology propagated by The Party. 'It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.' 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. . . Nineteen Eighty-Four is George Orwell's terrifying vision of a totalitarian future in which everything and everyone is slave to a tyrannical regime. The novel also coined many new words and phrases which regular appear in popular culture, such as 'Big Brother', 'thoughtcrime', 'doublethink' and 'Newspeak'. 'More relevant to today that almost any other book that you can think of' Jo Brand 'Right up there among my favourite books...I read it again and again' Margaret Atwood George Orwell (Eric Arthur Blair) was an accomplished social, political and literary commentator and essayist known for his non-fiction works The Road to Wigan Pier and Homage to Catalonia. His most famous novels, Animal Farm and 1984 have influenced a generation of twentieth century political satirists and dystopian novelists. This edition of Orwell's seminal novel is introduced by Professor Peter Davidson.

From the author of the definitive biography of George Orwell, a captivating account of the origin and enduring power of his landmark dystopian novel Since its publication nearly 70 years ago, George Orwell’s 1984 has been regarded as one of the most influential novels of the modern age. Politicians have testified to its influence on their intellectual identities, rock musicians have made records about it, TV viewers watch a reality show named for it, and a White House spokesperson tells of “alternative facts.” The world we live in is often described as an Orwellian one, awash in inescapable surveillance and invasions of privacy. On 1984 dives deep into Orwell’s life to chart his earlier writings and key moments in his youth, such as his years at a boarding school, whose strict and charismatic headmaster shaped the idea of Big Brother. Taylor tells the story of the writing of the book, taking readers to the Scottish island of Jura, where Orwell, newly famous thanks to Animal Farm but coping with personal tragedy and rapidly declining health, struggled to finish 1984. Published during the cold war—a term Orwell coined—Taylor elucidates the environmental influences on the book. Then he examines 1984’s post-publication life, including its role as a tool to understand our language, politics, and government. In a current climate where truth, surveillance, censorship, and critical thinking are contentious, Orwell’s work is necessary. Written with resonant and reflective analysis, On 1984 is both brilliant and remarkably timely.

Where do power and authority come from and how do those who have it keep it? What would be the impact of dissolution on the United Kingdom? These are the key questions in this study of English constitutional history, starting with the Tudor period and following the issues up to modern times. Tracing a path from the Tudor constitutional ideal of the king in Parliament to the emergence of civil rights ideas, the re-invention of an imperial Britain (Victoria as Gloriana) and current debates around self-determination, Ward considers how the constitution has been imagined in literature, as well as in historical narrative. In doing so, he makes it clear that Parliament and monarchy are themselves imagined and re-imagined over time, not as glosses on history, but as the center of a narrative of the constitution. He argues that ultimately, all constitutions depend for their acceptance on their ability to reach the imagination, rather than on the power of a legal code.

Scepticism And Hope In Twentieth Century Fantasy Literature

Religious discourse has become alien to the secular and sceptical western societies of the twentieth century. There is real discomfort when religious discourse appears either in the popular press or in society. But even in a secular society, there is still a psychological need (one might even use the stronger word will), if not to believe, then at least to hope. Dr. Filmer states this need is met in the literature of fantasy. Twentieth century fantasy has emerged from a long tradition of religion and philosophy, and it has adapted itself to provide gods and heroes whom readers might worship and in whom they might transcend themselves. Dr. Filmer does not argue that the literature of fantasy is "about" religion; rather the argument is that fantasy speaks religion, that it operates in the same space and uses the same devices as the discourse of religion, and does so largely to the same end: the articulation of hope. Dr. Filmer uses the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Peter Beagle, Susan Cooper, Madeleine L'Engle, George Orwell, Russell Hoban, James Thurber, Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., Alan Garner, Ursula LeGuin and Patricia Wrightson to illustrate her thesis. Scepticism and Hope reaffirms that, in the present sceptical age, Fantasy offers its readers a vision of the marvellous and the wonderful, and through that vision, the clear articulation of hope for humanity.
