一九八四 | 1984 by George Orwell

Among the seminal texts of the 20th century, Nineteen Eighty-Four is a rare work that grows more haunting as its futuristic purgatory becomes more real. Published in 1949, the book offers political satirist George Orwell's nightmarish vision of a totalitarian, bureaucratic world and one poor stiff's attempt to find individuality. The brilliance of the novel is Orwell's prescience of modern life—the ubiquity of television, the distortion of the language—and his ability to construct such a thorough version of hell. Required reading for students since it was published, it ranks among the most terrifying novels ever written.

乔治·奥威尔是英国伟大的人道主义作家、新闻记者和社会评论家,著名的英语文体家。《译文经典:一九八四》是奥威尔的传世之作,堪称世界文坛著名的反乌托邦、反极权的政治讽喻小说。他在小说中创造的“老大哥”、“双重思想”、“新话”等词汇都已收入专业的英语词典,甚至由他的姓衍生出“奥威尔式”(Orwellian)、“奥威尔主义”(orwellism)这样的通用词汇,不断出现在报道国际新闻的记者笔下,足见其作品在英语国家之深远。

书中描述的是对极权主义恶性发展的预言——人性遭到扼杀,自由遭到剥夺,思想受到钳制,生活极度贫乏、单调。特别可怕的是:人性已堕落到不分是非善恶的程度。
