Summary of 1984 Summary of 1984 Reviews for 1984 An Excerpt from 1984
Written in 1948, 1984 was George Orwell's chilling prophecy about the future. And while 1984 has come and gone, Orwell's narrative is more timely that ever. 1984 presents a "negative utopia," that is at once a startling and haunting vision of the worldso powerful that it is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the power of this novel, its hold on the imaginations of entire generations of readers, or the resiliency of its admonitionsa legacy that seems to grow, not lessen, with the passage of time.
