George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four is a pessimistic and dystopian novel. Throughout the novel we are shown a sense of oppression and totalitarianism. In the beginning of the novel Winston, who has a strong sense of individuality rebels against Big brother, who is the dictating party. He writes in big words in his diary “DOWN WITH BIG BROTHER.”(Orwell 2013: 36-37) At the end of the novel the party tortures and brainwashes Winston into accepting the ideals of the party. This shows what a horrific world Winston lives in.
After some time though these relationships faded and means of production became independent from social class. Karl Marx goal by writing this book was ultimately to give a better insight on the goals of communism. This book has showed me more about communism than I had ever known before, and I am glad that I live in a country where communism does not exist. In the mid-1800s Karl Marx, a new member of the Communist League, was forced by other Communist League members to write a manifesto on his experiences. This manifesto turned out to become The Communist Manifesto.
War results patriotism and patriotism leads to devotion towards the government. By using the slogan “war is peace”, Big Brother is keeping the inhabitants to contribute towards their goals. The significance of the slogan “war is peace”, also applies to the other two slogans “freedom is slavery” and “ignorance is strength”. One of Orwell’s tricks, is having the conceptual leaders of the opposing forces in Oceania as important role figures in the story. The reader is never directly told whether Goldstein and Big Brother exists, which leaves the reader in curiosity.
During the time that the novel was written, many nations were involved in a cold war, which was an ideological "showdown" between capitalist and socialist nations. George Orwell was definitely on the capitalist side, and he was heavily against communism. This explains why he represented it as an evil and rotten establishment in his book. Many elements of Marxism/communism were accurately portrayed in the book, but many were also exaggerated. After reading the novel, many people in the west likely began to view socialism as an evil type of government.
In the novel Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell, the idea of mechanisms of control plays a large part by which society functions. Seeing as how there is more than one way in which the methods of control restrict society in their ability to rebel. The reason being that so many methods of control are present is because I believe that certain ways in which the control is set out do not affect all people, hence the empowered party intends to introduce various ways such that all members of the current society are included. The reason being that it is believed that the novel is extremely dystopian is that it is a common belief that when Orwell wrote Nineteen Eighty-Four, his intent was to represent a future that he was afraid of. The idea of the world represented in the novel, is exactly the world that Orwell did not wish the future to be.
The first essay I was assigned to do in English 101 scared me. I had to write a rhetorical analysis on a tree octopus. I remember when Mr. Sullivan assigned the class to do an outline of the P.S.A. message I wasn't sure exactly what he wanted us to do. I ended up writing a rhetorical analysis for the rhetorical analysis of the P.S.A.
“You can’t ever have my books!” yelled a woman before she set herself on fire. This beautifully crafted statement demonstrates how well of a dystopian novel Ray Bradbury was able to compose. In Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, Bradbury extensively utilizes imagery and juxtaposition to help create his vision of a dystopian society. Bradbury uses imagery throughout to such an extent that the reader can perfectly imagine what his vision was. When Bradbury also employs the use of juxtaposition in conjunction with imagery, he shows just how different the world he envisioned with Fahrenheit 451 is from the world that exists today.
He used mainly pathos in the “I Have A Dream” speech because it was meant to be an emotional speech.
