George Orwell’s terrifying vision of a totalitarian future, annotated for students and with a new introduction by D. J.

In this new annotated edition Orwell’s biographer D. J. Taylor elucidates the full meaning of this timeless satire, explaining contemporary references in the novel, placing it in the context of Orwell’s life, elaborating on his extraordinary use of language and explaining the terms such as Newspeak, Doublethink and Room 101 that have become familiar phrases today. This is the essential edition of the essential book of modern times.
