1984

George Orwell

Among the most famous texts of the 20th century, 1984 is a rare work that grows more haunting as its futuristic purgatory becomes more real.

 

Published in 1949, the book offers political satirist George Orwell's nightmare vision of a totalitarian, bureaucratic world and one poor man's attempt to find individuality. The brilliance of the novel is Orwell's prescience of modern life - the ubiquity of television, the distortion of the language - and his ability to construct such a thorough version of hell.

 

Required reading for students since it was published, it ranks among the most terrifying and beautiful novels ever written.
