"His mind slid away into the labyrinth world of doublethink. To know and to not know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness, while telling carefully constructed lines, to hold simultaneously two opinions which cancelled out, knowing to be contradictory and believing in both of them, to use logic against logic, to repudiate morality while laying claim to it"

“The next moment a hideous, grinding screech, as of some monstrous machine running without oil, burst from the big telescreen at the end of the room.  It was a noise that set one’s teeth on edge and bristled the hair at the back of one’s neck.  The Hate had started.”

“Nineteen Eighty-Four” by George Orwell. In 1949, on the heels of another literary classic, Animal Farm, George Orwell wrote 1984, his now legendary and terrifying glimpse into the future. His vision of an omni-present and ultra-repressive State is rooted in the ominous world events of Orwell’s own time and is given shape and substance by his astute play on our own fears.
 The 1989 cover above shows ‘The Soul of the Soulless City’ by C. R. W. Nevinson.

1984: The masterpiece that killed George Orwell
In 1946 Observer editor David Astor lent George Orwell a remote Scottish farmhouse in which to write his new book, Nineteen Eighty-Four. It became one of the most significant novels of the 20th century. Here, Robert McCrum tells the compelling story of Orwell’s torturous stay on the island where the author, close to death and beset by creative demons, was engaged in a feverish race to finish the book.
