1984. Il mondo è diviso in tre immensi superstati in perenne guerra fra loro: Oceania, Eurasia ed Estasia. In Oceania, la cui capitale è Londra, la società è governata secondo i principi del Socing, il Socialismo Inglese, dal Grande Fratello, che tutto vede e tutto sa. I suoi occhi sono le telecamere che spiano di continuo nelle case, il suo braccio la psicopolizia che interviene al minimo sospetto. Tutto è permesso, non c’è legge scritta. Niente, apparentemente, è proibito. Tranne pensare, se non secondo i dettami del Socing. Tranne amare, se non con il fine esclusivo di riprodursi. Tranne divertirsi, se non con i programmi televisivi di propaganda. Tranne vivere, se non secondo gli usi e costumi imposti dall’infallibile e onnisciente Grande Fratello, che nessuno ha mai visto di persona. Ovunque grandi manifesti che lo ritraggono, con i suoi grossi baffi neri, ovunque slogan politici da lui ideati: “La guerra è pace”; “La libertà è schiavitù”; “L’ignoranza è forza”. Dal loro rifugio, in uno scenario desolante da Medioevo postnucleare, il protagonista, Winston Smith, l’“ultimo uomo in Europa” (questo il titolo che avrebbe preferito l’autore) e Julia, la sua compagna, lottano disperatamente per conservare un granello di umanità.


Nuova traduzione a cura di Stefano Manferlotti (2000).

George Orwell Diaries

This groundbreaking volume, never before published in the United States, at last introduces the interior life of George Orwell, the writer who defined twentieth-century political thought. Written as individual books throughout his career, the eleven surviving diaries collected here record Orwell’s youthful travels among miners and itinerant laborers, the fearsome rise of totalitarianism, the horrific drama of World War II, and the feverish composition of his great masterpieces Animal Farm and 1984 (which have now sold more copies than any two books by any other twentieth-century author). Personal entries cover the tragic death of his first wife and Orwell’s own decline as he battled tuberculosis. Exhibiting great brilliance of prose and composition, these treasured dispatches, edited by the world’s leading Orwell scholar, exhibit “the seeds of famous passages to come” (New Statesman) and amount to a volume as penetrating as the autobiography he would never write. 30 illustrations

Rok 1984

Wielki Brat Patrzy — to właśnie napisy tej treści, w antyutopii Orwella krzyczące z plakatów rozlepionych po całym Londynie, natchnęły twórców telewizyjnego show „Big Brother”. Czyżby wraz z upadkiem komunizmu wielka, oskarżycielska powieść straciła swoją rację bytu, stając się zaledwie inspiracją programu rozrywkowego? Nie. Bo ukazuje świat, który zawsze może powrócić. Świat pustych sklepów, permanentnej wojny, jednej wiary. Klaustrofobiczny świat Wielkiego Brata, w którym każda sekunda ludzkiego życia znajduje się pod kontrolą, a dominującym uczuciem jest strach. Świat, w którym ludzie czują się bezradni i samotni, miłość uchodzi za zbrodnię, a takie pojęcie jak „wolność” i „sprawiedliwość” nie istnieją. Na kuli ziemskiej są miejsca, gdzie ten świat wciąż trwa. I zawsze znajdą się cudotwórcy gotowi obiecywać stworzenie nowego, który od wizji Orwella dzieli tylko krok. Niestety, piekło wybrukowane jest dobrymi chęciami. A dwa plus dwa wcale nie musi się równać cztery.

The Road to Wigan Pier

Перед вами – иной Оруэлл. Не писатель, но – философ, литературный критик и журналист (строго говоря, создатель жанра «новой журналистики»). Человек, творящий подлинно высокую публицистику – и обращающий ее в истинное искусство слова!

Эссе Оруэлла всегда умные, изысканно-злые и в чем-то парадоксальные.

Сейчас, как и в прошлом, многим они кажутся спорными и «скандальными». Почему? Да потому, что Джордж Оруэлл всегда современен!

Why Socialists Don’t Believe in Fun

George Orwell’s payment book for 20 December 1943 records the sum of pounds 5.5.0 for a special article of 2,000 words for Tribune. This has never been traced in Tribune under Orwell’s name but it now seems certain that an essay, entitled “Can Socialists Be Happy?” by “John Freeman” is what is referred to. The name Freeman would have appealed to Orwell as a pseudonym, and the article has many social, political and literary links with Orwell, such as the relation of Lenin to Dickens (the fact that Lenin read A Christmas Carol on his deathbed also appears in the second paragraph of Orwell’s 1939 essay, “Charles Dickens”). A “real” John Freeman, later editor of the New Statesman, has confirmed that he did not write the article. The reason why Orwell chose to write as “John Freeman” he never used this pseudonym again is not clear. It may be that Tribune did not want its literary editor to be seen to be associated with its political pages. Possibly it was a device that allowed Orwell to be paid a special fee. Or it may be that he simply wished to see how far Tribune would let him go with his opinions. In any case, the article appeared in the Christmas issue and provoked much debate in the issues that followed. The “lost essay” is included in the Collected Works and printed here for the first time under Orwell’s name.
