George Orwell

Written in 1948, 1984 was George Orwell's chilling
prophecy about the future. And while 1984 has come
and gone, Orwells narrative is timelier than
ever. 1984 presents a
startling and haunting vision of the world, so
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 multiple generations of readers,
or the resiliency of its admonitionsa legacy that
seems only to grow with the passage of time.

GEORGE ORWELL (1903-1950) was born in India and
served with the Imperial Police in Burma before
joining the Republican Army in the Spanish Civil
War. Orwell was the author of
six novels as well as numerous essays and
nonfiction works.
