1984/Animal Farm (and More on George Orwell and His Politics!) (Fiction)

1984 and Animal Farmby George Orwell

I read 1984 back in my college days, but it affected me profoundly and you see this as I write about politics in Book 2. This is a classic novel and it’s profound message rings true in today’s technology-based world.

I taught Animal Farm many times and it always brings an interesting twist to the classroom. Orwell had a fascinating mind when it came to putting serious ideas into less than serious formats. Me…I just come out and say it!

About 1984: (Borrowed from Amazon.) Written in 1948, 1984 was George Orwell’s chilling prophecy about the future. And while 1984 has come and gone, his dystopian vision of a government that will do anything to control the narrative is timelier than ever…Winston Smith toes the Party line, rewriting history to satisfy the demands of the Ministry of Truth. With each lie he writes, Winston grows to hate the Party that seeks power for its own sake and persecutes those who dare to commit thought crimes. But as he starts to think for himself, Winston can’t escape the fact that Big Brother is always watching…A startling and haunting vision of the world, 1984 is so powerful that it is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the influence of this novel, its hold on the imaginations of multiple generations of readers, or the resiliency of its admonitions—a legacy that seems only to grow with the passage of time.

About Animal Farm: (Borrowed from Amazon.) In 1945, George Orwell, called the conscience of his generation, created an enduring, devastating story of new tyranny replacing old, and power corrupting even the noblest of causes. Today it is all too clear that Orwell’s masterpiece is still fiercely relevant wherever cults of personality thrive, truths are twisted by those in power, and freedom is under attack. Now, in this fully authorized edition, the artist Odyr translates the world and message of Animal Farm into a gorgeously imagined graphic novel. Old Major, Napoleon, Squealer, Snowball, Boxer, and all the animals of Animal Farm come to life in this newly envisaged classic. From his individual brushstrokes to the freedom of his page design, Odyr’s adaptation seamlessly moves between satire and fable and will appeal to all ages, just as Orwell intended.
