By George Orwell
A new edition of Orwell's timeless dystopian classic
Introduced and annotated by his biographer, D.J. TaylorSince its first publication in 1949, Orwell's devastating expose of the totalitarian mind has established itself as the most influential political satire of the modern age. Winston Smith's doomed rebellion against the all-seeing eye of Big Brother, and a world corrupted by technology and the perversion of language, is as relevant now as it ever was.
This new edition includes an introduction and extensive end-notes, and an appendix containing original responses to the novel and several of Orwell's essays from the period in which Nineteen Eighty-Four was written.
