Welcome to 1984 Literature Study Self-Paced Class! In this class, we will venture into George Orwell’s world where the government exerts ultimate control over its people to explore one of the greatest dystopian novels of all time. A world where every aspect of a person’s life is controlled, where every action is watched, and every sound is heard. Privacy and individualism is a think of the past. Propaganda, fear, and control is the future.
“In the novel, Great Britain (“Airstrip One”) has become a province of a superstate named Oceania. Oceania is ruled by the “Party”, who employ the “Thought Police” to persecute individualism and independent thinking.The Party’s leader is Big Brother, who enjoys an intense cult of personality but may not even exist. The protagonist of the novel, Winston Smith, is a rank-and-file Party member. Smith is an outwardly diligent and skillful worker, but he secretly hates the Party and dreams of rebellion against Big Brother. Smith rebels by entering a forbidden relationship with fellow employee Julia.” (Source: Wikipedia)
