一九八四(1984)简介:

Among the seminal texts of the 20th century, Nineteen Eighty-Four 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 stiff'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 novels ever written.

乔治·奥威尔是英国人道主义、新闻记者和社会评论家,著名的英语文体作家。
《一九八四》和《动物农场》是奥威尔的传世之作,堪称世界文坛上最著名的政治讽喻小说。他在小说中他创造的“老大哥”、“双重思想”、“新话”等词汇都已收入权威的英语词典,甚至由他的姓衍生了一个形容词“奥威尔式”不断出现在报道国际新闻的记者笔下,足见其作品在英语国家影响之深远。“多一个人看奥威尔,就多了一份自由的保障”,有评家如是说。
