George Orwell's novel about the perils of totalitarian rule remains relevant more than 60 years after its 1949 publication. 1984 paints the bleak picture of a society in which all information is controlled by the government, also known as Big Brother, and notions of individuality become increasingly compromised. Literature professor Harold Bloom introduces this volume of critical excerpts about this timely title. This new edition also features an annotated bibliography and an index for quick reference.
