Nineteen Eighty-Four : The Annotated Edition Paperback / softback

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics series

Paperback / softback

Description

This is the essential edition of the essential book of modern times, 1984, now annotated for students with an introduction by D.

J. Taylor. Ever since its publication in 1949, George Orwell's terrifying vision of a totalitarian regime where Big Brother controls its citizens like 'a boot stamping on a human face' has become a touchstone for human freedom, and one of the most widely-read books in the world.

In this new annotated edition Orwell's biographer D.

J. Taylor elucidates the full meaning of this timeless satire, explaining contemporary references in the novel, placing it in the context of Orwell's life, elaborating on his extraordinary use of language and explaining the terms such as Newspeak, Doublethink and Room 101 that have become familiar phrases today.
