Nineteen Eighty-Four [9781472133038]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
A new and definitive edition of Nineteen Eighty-Four, introduced and annotated by Orwell's prize-winning biographer. With additional content from Orwell himself.

Set in an imagined future, Nineteen Eighty-Four is among the seminal texts of the 20th century, achieving the incredible feat of resonating with readers as much today as it did seventy years ago. Orwell's nightmarish vision of the surveillance state echoes our own modern-day concerns: privacy, bureaucracy, the rise of the surveillance state.

Nineteen Eighty-Four is that rare piece of literature that has become more haunting over time as our own society imperceptibly begins to resemble Airstrip One.
