1984 is an anachronistic novel by George Orwell which was published in the year 1949. It is the life of Winston Smith, a member of ‘the Party’, who is thwarted by the ubiquitous eyes of the party, and its baleful ruler Big Brother.
Every facet of live is controlled by the ‘Big brother. It leads to the origin of ‘Newspeak’ language, an attempt to totally abolish political rebellion; created ‘Thought crime to stop people even thinking of things considered rebellious. George productively traverses the subject matter of government scrutiny, mass press and media control, authoritarian and how autocrats can influence and regulate the past, thoughts and lives in a way that no one has an escape.
1984 is now a universal uttered viva-voice for anything despotic or totalitarian, and the story of Winston Smith, a common man of his times, continues to reflect for readers whose fears for the subsequent times are very different from those of an English writer in the mid-1940s. An evocative narrating of situations which aids to explain Orwell’s dystopia. An English writer who is in despair illness, wrestling the evils of his creative imagination in a bleak aftermath of World War II.
Sarcasm, part of Orwell’s strenuous derived from the success of Animal Farm. After years of dilapidation and indifference the world was waking up to his genius. People in the later stage realised the brilliance of his depiction of the period and addressing the issues through a very visionary and resourceful manner. An exceptionally written and a rare resource of themes and subject line which later became a referenced document.
Seventy one years has passed, seven decades of creative world has culturally and semantically influenced by the classic narration and interpretation of control and governing. The legacy has carried out beyond the literature boundaries, in art, theatre performances and in movies the subject line is still debated. Sanctimony, but with a turn around. Besides choosing ignorance, a conflict to your belief, when you are double-thinking you are intentionally forgetting the conflicts are there. This delicacy is mostly failed to observe by the people by the allegation of overthinking.
George Orwell’s vision of the world is uninviting, too uninviting, some would argue, this may impoverish the faint heart among us for aspiration and hope. No, he challenged us to oppose the the shock waved through our heart, showing us the authoritarian nightmares achieved, a dedication to monitoring and control.
1984 has changed the way people had looked at ideologies and leadership. Cynical, scathing, and not without its flaws, this is often still a stark, haunting glimpse at what might be. Snarling, devastating and not without any defects, sharp yet very haunting picture of what it could be. An ideological chasm into which we must not stare; a perk at authoritarianism power plays to which the Nazis and Soviets never subside. While we can admire the reminder to avoid authoritarianism and his prescient vision, the idea that sincerity can be arranged through media is perhaps the most important or us in present.
