The setting of George Orwell’s 1984 is set in the near future of Oceania. Oceania is in a continuous state of war where bombs go off relentlessly. In Oceania the living conditions of the country are extremely poor and the buildings have been ruined.

In many novels such as 1984 by George Orwell, they use the ideas of an almost perfect or a non-perfect world or society. Orwell portrays two types of utopias in his novel, 1984 but they can be seen as both, depending on what aspect the reader is looking at. A utopian society is an imagined place or state in which everything appears perfect to a certain point. A dystopian society is a conceived place or state in which everything is unpleasant or bad, typically a totalitarian or environmentally degrading society. Orwell uses Winston Smith to project the utopian society, he has made by showing how it affects the people.

Bailey Stanford Part 1  The three groups that make up Oceania are the Inner Party, the Outer Party, and the Proles. The Inner Party consists of the rich people and political figures of Oceania, and they are more privileged than those in the Outer Party and the Proles.

The Proles are the lower class who have no rights and are “free,” but do not have the same access to resources that the Outer Party has.

1984 by George Orwell is nontraditional. The exposition in this story is notably interesting. At times when I'm reading a new story with a societal structure vastly different than my own, the author tends to provide far more information than necessary; my eyes have a tendency to glaze over the text rather than actively and fascinatedly reading. The concepts in 1984 are explained thoroughly and cleverly; seldom did I feel I was simply reading pages of exposition without a purpose. This is due, in part, to the compelling and fascinating subject matter.
