ABSTRACT: Orwell`s “1984” is a scathing satire on modern totalitarian states. Orwell also fears that there are some political states as well which have their own open and subtle designs to strike at the bastion of liberty and the freedom of thought and expression. Orwell’s mind was troubled by three evils- class, oppression, and poverty. Against these three evils he set the following three values- decency, liberty, and justice. Around these six terms we would shape the whole story of Orwell’s mind and heart, taking his fiction and non-fiction together as a whole.
In George Orwell’s 1984, he utilizes motif, imagery, and irony to display the negative effects of a totalitarian government can have on society.

As Winston explains what he does for a living, readers begin to realize that Winston takes false predictions made by Big Brother and rewrites them to be true.

Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely” (Lord Acton) This quote is telling us that when people get into roles of absolute power they tend to become corrupt, as a result of that power. This quote can be applied to Napoleon from the book Animal Farm by George Orwell, because at the beginning of the novel Old Major’s words inspired Napoleon. As a result, he believed that humans were evil for forcing animals to work for them and that animals should be able to live freely, not under anyone’s control; however, as the story progresses his belief changed and the animals did not get to live their utopian dream.
