Comparing The World George Orwell Described In “1984” With Today

I’ve divided “1984” into the 45 themes listed down the left-hand side of the HOME PAGE and to which each posting is linked. I arrived at the themes by reading through the book and separating Orwell’s words into concept piles (themes). In one pile I put Orwell’s references to BIG BROTHER. In another pile I put Orwell’s references to THOUGHT POLICE and so on and so on. I then placed the themes as much as possible into the order they appeared in the novel.

The themes comprise what I believe to be the essence of “1984” but do not contain the whole book. For that a person still needs to read the entire novel. Versions of the novel vary somewhat. The one I used was the Penquin edition printed in Great Britain in 1966.

The themes provide an overview for people who haven’t yet read the book or a review for people who read it “years ago”. The words in bold and underline emphasize what I consider to be key points.
