To read George Orwell’s 1984, published in 1949, is to be astonished by his foreseeing some of the most pressing concerns of today’s world, including the role of misinformation, the proliferation of media, and the dramatic struggle between freedom of speech and authoritarian control. Joseph Luzzi, professor of literature at Bard College, explores how and why Orwell created a work of such transcendent brilliance, especially in its ability to diagnose deep-rooted political problems and their effect on human individuality. Luzzi also examines why Orwell is considered one of literature’s greatest prose stylists through a careful look at the elements and qualities of his powerful language.
