"1984" is George Orwell’s most recognized work and one of the most famous novels in the English language. Along with Aldous Huxley’s "Brave New World", Orwell’s "1984" helped to define the now-familiar genre of dystopian fiction. Orwell’s is a terrifying vision of a totalitarian society that seeks, through mass surveillance and a restructuring of language, thought and the very nature of reality, absolute control over the individual human being.
