Summarize The political critical novel 1984 written by George Orwell portrays a hypothetical totalitarian society dominated by the Party (symbolized as Big Brother) after World War II where humanity (including both physical and psychological freedom) has been eliminated due to strict hierarchy levels in the nation of Oceania.

Gatlin Farrington 12/1 P.4 Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury is an excellent utopian/dystopian fictional story about a man who fights for the freedom to read.

Journalist Philip Goldstein says, “Winston eventually accepts newspeak, repudiates sexual, gendered love and worships Big Brother and the Party not only because in totalitarianism fashion O’Brien intimidates and tortures Winston but also because, in the paperweight, the photo, Goldstein 's book, the prols, popular culture, and even Julia, Winston can find no opposition better than the metaphysical” (Goldstein 131). Goldstein is arguing that Winston eventually succumbs to this power because he has nothing else to turn to anymore.
