    George Orwells klassiker nyoversat for første gang siden den oprindelige udgivelse i 1949. "Den, der kontrollerer fortiden,kontrollerer fremtiden;den, der kontrollerer nutiden,kontrollerer fortiden." Alt hvad du tænker og gør, registreres og rapporteres til Tankepolitiet. Det er år 1984. Winston Smith bor i Oceanien, hvor Partiet og den allestedsnærværende Big Brother overvåger borgerne ned til mindste detalje. Winston arbejder i Ministeriet for Sandhed, hvor han redigerer gamle dokumenter og aviser, så historien altid fremstår i overensstemmelse med Partiets sandhed. Men Winston længes efter frihed, og han opdager hurtigt, at den trang er livsfarlig.?1984 er et stærkt forsvar for tankens frihed, og George Orwells dystopi er mere aktuel end nogensinde.

    Dyregården er en helt ny oversættelse af George Orwells verdensberømte roman Animal Farm - nyoversat for første gang siden den oprindelige udgivelse på dansk med titlen Kammerat Napoleon fra 1947.Under ledelse af grisene gør de undertrykte og overbebyrdede dyr på Herregården oprør mod gårdens dovne og fordrukne ejer Mr. Jones og fordriver ham fra gården. De grundlægger en ny filosofi, som de kalder animalisme, og de får deres egen kampsang. Herregården bliver omdøbt til Dyregården, og dyrene forestiller sig, at det er begyndelsen til et nyt liv bygget på frihed og lighed. Men gradvis etableres der en snu og hensynsløs elite af de intellektuelt overlegne grise ledet af den brutale gris Napoleon. Og de oprindelige idealistiske syv bud reduceres til ét bud: Alle dyr er lige, men nogle dyr er mere lige end andre. Dyregården er en grum og vittig politisk satire skrevet i fablens form rettet mod Stalins brutale diktatur i Sovjetunionen, og flere af bogens karakterer kan kobles til historiske personer. Et bidende skarpt eventyr for voksne, som gengiver udviklingen fra revolution mod tyranni til et lige så frygteligt totalitært styre. Budskabet er stadig helt aktuelt, og bogen optræder fortsat på lister over de bedste og mest populære bøger."… den lystigste parodi på det kommunistiske Rusland, som er skrevet, lige så hvas som vittig." – Hakon Stangerup"Det er en bog, der er så vittig i sin skildring af det Stalinistiske Rusland, at vittigheden får langt videre sigte. … den mest aktuelle, den morsomste og den mest realistiske bog fra vore dage." – Jens Kruuse

    'An unrivalled picture of the rumours, suspicions and treachery of civil war' Antony BeevorEvery line of serious work that I have written since 1936 has been written, directly or indirectly, against totalitarianism and for democratic Socialism as I understand it'. Thus wrote Orwell following his experiences as a militiaman in the Spanish Civil War, chronicled in Homage to Catalonia. Here he brings to bear all the force of his humanity, passion and clarity, describing with bitter intensity the bright hopes and cynical betrayals of that chaotic episode: the revolutionary euphoria of Barcelona, the courage of ordinary Spanish men and women he fought alongside, the terror and confusion of the front, his near-fatal bullet wound and the vicious treachery of his supposed allies.A firsthand account of the brutal conditions of the Spanish Civil War, George Orwell's Homage to Catalonia includes an introduction by Julian Symons.

    The Thought Police, Doublethink, Newspeak, Big Brother - '1984' itself: these terms have moved from the world of fiction into our everyday lives. They are central to our thinking about freedom and its suppression; yet they were created by George Orwell in 1949 as he conjured his dystopian vision of a world where totalitarian power is absolute.

    1984, published in 1949, is a dystopian and satirical novel. It revolves around Winston Smith, who lives in a nation called Oceania, in a province called Airstrip One, which represents present-day England. This state is controlled by the Party, headed by a mysterious leader who is addressed as Emmanuel Goldstein, also known as the Big Brother. The Party watches every single move that Smith and other citizens make.The nation's language and history is forcefully changed for the benefit of the Party. A new language, Newspeak, is being compulsively implemented to ensure works that have anything to do with political rebellion are omitted. In Oceania, even rebellious thoughts are illegal and are said to be the worst of all crimes. The people are suppressed and any form of individuality is not tolerated, including love and sex.Smith works as a low-ranking member of the Party who alters historical records. He hates the Party and thus buys an illegal diary in which he pens down his thoughts. He meets Julia, a coworker, who seems to been romantically inclined towards him. He however doubts that she is a Party spy who will get him imprisoned for his ';thoughtcrimes'. Her love turns out to be true and they have a covert affair. Smith's hatred for the Party grows day by day and he is convinced that a powerful Party official O'Brien is actually trying to overthrow the present government with the help of a secret group named the Brotherhood. As the story goes on, readers learn the twists and turns that life in Oceania has in store for Smith.

    Animal Farm is regarded in the literary field as one of the most famous satirical allegories of Soviet totalitarianism. Orwell based the book on events up to and during Joseph Stalins regime. Orwell, a democratic socialist, and a member of the Independent Labour Party for many years, was a critic of Stalin, and was suspicious of Moscow-directed Stalinism after his experiences in the Spanish Civil War.The plot is an allegory in which the pigs in a farm play the role of the Bolshevik revolutionaries and overthrow and oust the human owners of the farm, setting it up as a commune in which, at first, all animals are equal. The other characters have their parallels in the real world, but care should be taken with these comparisons as they do not always match history exactly and often simply represent generalised concepts.The novel was chosen by TIME Magazine as one of the 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to the present.ABOUT THE AUTHOR:Eric Arthur Blair, better known by his pen name George Orwell (19031950), was an English author and journalist.

    George Orwell was an inveterate keeper of diaries. The Orwell Diaries presents eleven of them, covering the period 1931-1949, and follows Orwell from his early years as a writer to his last literary notebook. An entry from 1931 tells of a communal shave in the Trafalgar Square fountains, while notes from his travels through industrial England show the development of the impassioned social commentator. This same acute power of observation is evident in his diaries from Morocco, as well as at home, where his domestic diaries chart the progress of his garden and animals with a keen eye; the wartime diaries, from descriptions of events overseas to the daily violence closer to home, describe astutely his perspective on the politics of both, and provide a new and entirely refreshing insight into Orwell's character and his great works.

    Set in the days of the Empire, with the British ruling in Burma, Burmese Days describes both indigenous corruption and Imperial bigotry, when 'after all, natives were natives - interesting, no doubt, but finally only a "e;subject"e; people, an inferior people with black faces'. Against the prevailing orthodoxy, Flory, a white timber merchant, befriends Dr Veraswami, a black enthusiast for Empire. The doctor needs help. U Po Kyin, Sub- divisional Magistrate of Kyauktada, is plotting his downfall. The only thing that can save him is European patronage: membership of the hitherto all-white Club. While Flory prevaricates, beautiful Elizabeth Lackersteen arrives in Upper Burma from Paris. At last, after years of 'solitary hell', romance and marriage appear to offer Flory an escape from the 'lie' of the 'pukka sahib pose'.

    A searing account of George Orwell's observations of working-class life in the bleak industrial heartlands of Yorkshire and Lancashire in the 1930s, The Road to Wigan Pier is a brilliant and bitter polemic that has lost none of its political impact over time. His graphically unforgettable descriptions of social injustice, cramped slum housing, dangerous mining conditions, squalor, hunger and growing unemployment are written with unblinking honesty, fury and great humanity. It crystallized the ideas that would be found in Orwell's later works and novels, and remains a powerful portrait of poverty, injustice and class divisions in Britain.Includes illustrations, explanatory footnotes, and an introduction by Richard Hoggart.

    'Shooting an Elephant' is Orwell's searing and painfully honest account of his experience as a police officer in imperial Burma; killing an escaped elephant in front of a crowd 'solely to avoid looking a fool'. The other masterly essays in this collection include classics such as 'My Country Right or Left', 'How the Poor Die' and 'Such, Such were the Joys', his memoir of the horrors of public school, as well as discussions of Shakespeare, sleeping rough, boys' weeklies and a spirited defence of English cooking. Opinionated, uncompromising, provocative and hugely entertaining, all show Orwell's unique ability to get to the heart of any subject.
