1984 é uma das obras mais influentes do século XX, um inquestionável clássico moderno. Publicado em 1949, quando o ano de 1984 pertencia a um futuro relativamente distante, tem como herói o angustiado Winston Smith, refém de um mundo feito de opressão absoluta. Em Oceânia, ter uma mente livre é considerado crime gravíssimo, pois o Grande Irmão, líder simbólico do Partido que controla a tudo e todos, " está de olho em você ".

No íntimo, porém, Winston se rebela contra a sociedade totalitária na qual vive: em seu anseio por verdade e liberdade, ele arrisca a vida ao se envolver amorosamente com uma colega de trabalho, Júlia, e com uma organização revolucionária secreta.

1984 is not a particularly good ovel, but it is a very good ssay.

He came to realize that ideology in an uthoritarian state is nothing but a distraction, a shiny thing made for the public to stare at.

He came to realize that the point of control was more control, the point of torture was more torture, that the point of all their " alternative facts " was to fashion a world where people would no longer possess even a word for truth.If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever.

A Stalinist?), for while we try to discern his “ ideological goals, ” the enemy is busy pulling on his oots, and his oots are made with hobnails, with heel irons, and equipped with toecaps of steel.Finally, it does not matter who heads up the authoritarian state: a bully boy like Mussolini, a strutting coprophiliac like Hitler, a Napoleonic pig like Stalin, or a brainless dancing bear like Trump.

He loved Big Brother ” ** 2018 addendum- it is a testament to great literature that a reader recalls the work years later and this is a memoi about which I frequently think.

The cene that I most often think is when Winston and Julia are captured. ** 2019 reread- Lost in my memory was to what extent Orwell describes and explains his nightmare.

Winston Smith cautiously and surreptitiously discovers the Brotherhood led by Goldstein and then learns all too well about O'Brien 's duplicitous doublethink.More than just a cautionary political tale, Orwell has described an ideological abyss into which we must not gaze; a glimpse at authoritarianism power plays to which the azis and Soviets never descended.

WAR IS PEACE.FREEDOM IS SLAVERY.IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH.Those words keep sounding in my head since I read this ook.

The " truths " is what the state says it is.

That way, you 'll be indestructible and immortal.Ignorance is strength, means the division on high, middle, low classes in society will never be changed.

Afterwards, a new middle class arises, all will change except the low.

I can definitely see why so many people love this memoi.

Despite being published back in 1948, I have yet to find a more chilling, nightmarish locale than Orwell 's iconic world of BIG BROTHER and INGSOC.

Looking back on it, I have NO IDEA why on Earth we were reading this nove at that age but I do recall we spent quite a bit of time discussing it.

I have always thought that one of the best and most important characteristic of science fiction is that it frees the author to take the controversial, politically charged issues and trends of the ay and create a possible future based on exaggerations of such trends and in so doing present a compelling and critical argument for change.
