Synopsis

Synopsis

En el año 1984 Londres es una ciudad lúgubre en la que la Policía del Pensamiento controla de forma asfixiante la vida de los ciudadanos. Winston Smith es un peón de este engranaje perverso, su cometido es reescribir la historia para adaptarla a lo que el Partido considera la versión oficial de los hechos... hasta que decide replantearse la verdad del sistema que los gobierna y somete.

«Desde El proceso de Kafka ninguna obra fantástica ha alcanzado el horror lógico de 1984.» Arthur Koestler
George Orwell

About George Orwell

George Orwell - 1984
George Orwell (Motihari, India, 1903-Londres, 1950), cuyo nombre real era Eric Blair, fue novelista, ensayista brillante y maestro de periodistas. Podría decirse que su breve vida resume los sueños y las pesadillas del mundo occidental en el siglo XX. Nació en la India británica en el seno de una familia de clase media, estudió con una beca en el exclusivo colegio de Eton, sirvió en la Policía Imperial en ultramar (Los días de Birmania, 1934), volvió a Europa, donde vivió a salto de mata (Sin blanca en París y Londres, 1933), regresó a la Inglaterra rural y empezó allí el ejercicio de la docencia (La hija del clérigo, 1935), escribió sobre la clase obrera inglesa y la explotación (Que no muera la aspidistra, 1936; El camino a Wigan Pier, 1937), recogió su experiencia combatiendo el fascismo en la turbulenta Guerra Civil española (Homenaje a Cataluña, 1938), empezó a vislumbrar en la convalecencia posterior el derrumbe del viejo mundo (Subir a por aire, 1939), colaboró en la BBC durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial, se consagró en el Tribune y el Observer como uno de los mejores prosistas en lengua inglesa (entre su vasta producción ensayística cabe destacar El león y el unicornio y otros ensayos, 1940), fabuló las perversiones del socialismo (Rebelión en la granja, 1945) y llegó a anticipar nuevos tipos de sociedad burocrática e hiperpolítica (1984, 1949). A pesar de su temprana muerte, se le sigue considerando la conciencia de una generación y una de las voces más lúcidas que se han alzado contra toda clase de totalitarismos.
