    It is the story of the life of the intellectual Winston Smith, his job in the Ministry of Information, and his degradation by the totalitarian government of Oceania, the country in which he lives.

    In 1984, Winston Smith lives in London which is part of the country Oceania. The world is divided into three countries that include the entire globe: Oceania, Eurasia, and Eastasia. Oceania is a totalitarian society led by Big Brother, which censors everyone's behavior, even their thoughts. Winston is disgusted with his oppressed life and secretly longs to join the fabled Brotherhood, a supposed group of underground rebels intent on overthrowing the government. Winston meets Julia and they secretly fall in love and have an affair, something which is considered a crime. One day, while walking home, Winston encounters O'Brien, an inner party member, who gives Winston his address. Winston had exchanged glances with O'Brien before and had dreams about him giving him the impression that O'Brien was a member of the Brotherhood. Since Julia hated the party as much as Winston did, they went to O'Brien's house together where they were introduced into the Brotherhood. O'Brien is actually a faithful member of the Inner-Party and this is actually a trap for Winston, a trap that O'Brien has been cleverly setting for seven years. Winston and Julia are sent to the Ministry of Love which is a sort of rehabilitation center for criminals accused of thoughtcrime. There, Winston was separated from Julia, and tortured until his beliefs coincided with those of the Party. Winston denounces everything he believed him, even his love for Julia, and was released back into the public where he wastes his days at the Chestnut Tree drinking gin.

    Nineteen Eighty-Four)是英國作家喬治·奧威爾創作的一部政治諷刺小說,初版於1949年,被公認為「反烏托邦」(Dystopias)的代表作品之一。

    在這部小說中,奧威爾深刻分析了極權主義社會,並且刻劃了一個令人感到窒息和恐怖的,以追逐權力為最終目標的假想的未來社會,通過對這個社會中一個普通人生活的細緻刻畫,投射出了現實生活中極權主義的本質。

    故事背景

    1984年的世界被三個超級大國所瓜分-----大洋國、歐亞國和東亞國,三個國家之間的戰爭不斷,國家內部社會結構被徹底打破,均實行共產國家的高度集權統治,以改變歷史、改變語言(如「新話」-Newspeak)、打破家庭等極端手段鉗制人們的思想和本能,以具有監視功能的「電幕」控制人們的行為,以對領袖的個人崇拜和對國內外敵人的仇恨維持社會的運轉。

    內容大概

    大洋國社會被分為核心黨員、外圍黨員和無產者三個階層。生活在大洋國社會中層(外圍黨員)的政府職員溫斯頓對所處的社會和領袖「老大哥」(Big Brother)產生懷疑,並與另一位外圍黨員裘利亞產生感情,因而成為思想犯,在經歷了專門負責內部清洗的「友愛部」的思想改造之後成為「思想純潔者」,自願被處死。

    《一九八四》是一部政治寓言,但遺憾的是,在此書出版之後的五十年歷史中,書中描繪的恐怖社會不斷以各種形式在現實生活中出現,尤以紅色高棉在柬埔寨的社會改造為頂峰。其散佈恐外仇恨、黨說以及真理部的類似作為仍可在世上某些國家發現。
