1984 is a book that got has huge critical acclaim. The book has become a kind of antiphon for the second great dystopia of the 20th century – Brave New World. What, in fact, is worse leading ad absurdum a society of consumption, or leading to the absolute the society of an idea? According to Orwell, there can be nothing worse than a total lack of freedom.
In Brave New World, the scientific background of the world is the most important message. Huxley shows that the ideas of the New Age about the saving power of the mind are unsound. The power of dictators will never fall. Utopia won’t remove social inequality, but will give rise to biological inequality. The second part is economic, the world in the novel is the world of ideal consumption; a person is a cog in the production system. This is the world of absolute anonymity. God is Ford. Chronology of the events starts from the release of the first Ford model. This world does not need spirituality, a high level of culture, religion, or science. The novel represents one end of the history, the achievement of a utopian anti-ideal – history stops and humanity dies.
The novel 1984 was written in 1948. In this context, the definition of future is conditional. This novel is unusual in terms of dystopia. Orwell’s doesn’t have welfare, or material satiety. Life has become even worse, the poor became even poorer, instead of satiety dominates self-deception. All these features can be attributed to the late time of writing the novel. Orwell provides some specific references to historical experience of Russia and Germany. Utopia is a place that does not exist. And such material unfulfillment arises in the depth of utopia. All society in the novel lives in imagination. It is impossible to satisfy a person in a material aspect. Something needs to be changes in the human mind. The new government does not want material objects of power, it wants a spiritual power. The War Department in the novel is called the Ministry of the world; the secret police is the Ministry of Love. This world in all aspects is associated with the suppression of senses.
