George Orwell's famous Nineteen Eighty-Four was first published in 1949. The terrifying dystopia which he created in a time of great social and political unrest, remains acutely relevant and influential to this day.

Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. This edition features an introduction by writer and journalist Dorian Lynskey.

The year is 1984. The country is impoverished and permanently at war, people are watched day and night by Big Brother, and their every action and thought is controlled by the Thought Police. Winston Smith works in the department of propaganda where his job is rewrite the past. Spurred by his longing to escape, Winston rebels. He breaks the law by falling in love with Julia, and as part of the clandestine organisation, The Brotherhood, they attempt the unimaginable - to bring down The Party.


AUTHOR: Eric Arthur Blair (George Orwell) was born in 1903 in India where his father was a civil servant. After studying at Eton, he served with the Indian Imperial Police in Burma for several years which inspired his first novel, Burmese Days. After two years in Paris, he returned to England to work as a teacher and then in a bookshop. In 1936 he travelled to Spain to fight for the Republicans in the Spanish Civil War, where he was badly wounded. During the Second World War he worked for the BBC. A prolific journalist and essayist, Orwell wrote some of the most influential books in English literature, including the dystopian Nineteen Eighty-Four and his political allegory Animal Farm. He died from tuberculosis in 1950.
