This Scholastic Classics edition of George Orwell's classic
dystopian novel is perfect for students and Orwell enthusiasts
alike.
Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls
the present controls the past.
Winston Smith has always been a dutiful citizen of Oceania, rewriting
history to meet the demands of the Ministry of Truth. But
with each lie that he writes, Winston starts to resent the totalitarian
party that seeks power for its own sake and punishes those
that desire individuality.
When Winston begins a secret relationship
with his colleague Julia, he soon realises it's virtually
impossible to escape the watchful eye of Big Brother...
Totalitarianism, identity and independence, repression,
power, language, rebellion, technology and modernisation are some
of the themes that run throughout this novel.
