Description

‘Who controls the past controls the long run: who controls the prevailing controls the past’

Hidden away within the Record Department of the sprawling Ministry of Truth, Winston Smith skilfully rewrites the past to fit the desires of the Party. Yet he inwardly rebels against the totalitarian world he lives in, which demands absolute obedience and controls him in the course of the all-seeing telescreens and the watchful eye of Big Brother, symbolic head of the Party. In his eager for truth and liberty, Smith begins a secret love affair with a fellow-worker Julia, but soon discovers the true price of freedom is betrayal.

George Orwell’s dystopian masterpiece, Nineteen Eighty-Four is most likely probably the most pervasively influential book of the 20th century.
