1) 1984 is a philosophical and dystopian novel in George Orwell draws a totalitarian world in which ideologies have triumphed over the individual. It is the most famous novel by G.O, published  in 1949.

He describes a Great Britain thirty years after a nuclear war between East and West supposed to have taken place in the 1950s and where a regime of totalitarian type was strongly inspired both by Stalinism and certain elements Of Nazism. Freedom of expression no longer exists. All thoughts are carefully monitored, and huge posters are posted in the streets, telling everyone that Big Brother is watching you.

The main character in the novel, Big Brother, has become a metaphorical figure of the police and totalitarian regime, the society of surveillance, and the reduction of freedoms after the publication of the novel.

2) George Orwell is a writer of the 20th century. Being young, he went to the army to defend his country which explains his distaste for imperialism. He wrote since childhood and he has always chosen to write to denounce society including the social misery. Even if the army disturbs it will later decide to go to fight in Spain against Franco when he gets hurt.

This novel denounces the magnitude of totalitarianism in the 20th century and before denouncing, it's above all thinking Americans to 1949 on the danger of the dictatorship and the importance of freedom.

3) For me, this book brings me back to the recent news. Between the limit of human being and freedom, this book is a great leap into the 21st century.
