But unlike Orwells other famous political satire,Animal Farm, this novel is filled with bleak cynicism and grim pessimism aboutthe human race. When it was written, 1984 stood as a warning against thedangerous probabilities of communism. And now today, after communism has
  2. 2. crumbled with the Berlin Wall; 1984 has come back to tell us a tale of massmedia, data mining, and their harrowing consequences.Its 1984 in London, a city in the new überstate of Oceania, which containswhat was once England, Western Europe and North America. Our hero,Winston Smith works in the Ministry of Truth altering documents thatcontradict current government statements and opinions. Winston begins toremember the past that he has worked so hard to destroy, and turns againstThe Party. Even Winstons quiet, practically undetectable form of anarchism isdangerous in a world filled with thought police and the omnipresent two-waytelescreen. He fears his inevitable capture and punishment, but feels nocompulsion to change his ways.Winstons dismal observations about human nature are accompanied by thehope that good will triumph over evil; a hope that Orwell does not appear toshare. The people of Oceania are in the process of stripping down the Englishlanguage to its bones. Creating Newspeak, which Orwell uses only forexamples and ideas which exist only in the novel. The integration of Newspeakinto the conversation of the book. One of the new words created isdoublethink, the act of believing that two conflicting realities exist. Such aswhen Winston sees a photograph of a non-person, but must reason that thatperson does not, nor ever has, existed.The inspiration for Winstons work ,may have come from Russia. Where Stalinsright-hand man, Trotzky was erased from all tangible records after hisdissention from the party. And the fear of telescreens harks back to the dayswhen Stasi bugs were hooked to every bedpost, phone line and light bulb inEastern Europe.
  3. 3. His reference to Hitler Youth, the Junior Spies, which trains children to keep aneye out for thought criminals- even if they are their parents; provides evidencefor Orwells continuing presence in pop culture. "Where men cant walk, orfreely talk, And sons turn their fathers in." is a line from U2s 1993 song titled"The Wanderer".Orwell assumes that we will pick up on these political allusions. But theaverage grade 11 student will probably only have a vague understanding ofthese due to lack of knowledge. It is even less likely that they will pick up onthe universality of these happenings, like the fact that people still "disappear"without a trace every day in Latin America.Overall, however, the book could not have been better written. Orwell hascreated characters and events that are scarily realistic. Winstons narrationbrings the reader inside his head, and sympathetic with the cause of thewould-be-rebels. There are no clear answers in the book, and its often thereader who has to decide what to believe. But despite a slightly unresolvedplot, the book serves its purpose. Orwell wrote this book to raise questions;and the sort of questions he raised have no easy answer. This aspect can makethe novel somewhat of a disappointment for someone in search of a light read.But anyone prepared to not just read, but think about a novel, will get a lot outof 1984.1984, is not a novel for the faint of heart, it is a gruesome, saddening portraitof humanity, with its pitfalls garishly highlighted. Its historic importance hasnever been underestimated; and its reemergence as a political warning for the21st century makes it deserving of a second look. Winstons world of paranoiaand inconsistent realities is an eloquently worded account of a future wethought we buried in our past; but in truth may be waiting just around thecorner.
