Synopsis:

If your latest assignment has you so confused that you're actually beginning to think that 2 + 2 does equal 5, then let CliffsNotes on 1984 help you navigate the tumultuous waters of George Orwell's dystopian world of Oceania. The expert commentaries and critical analyses in this study guide will help you decipher the Doublethink and Newspeak of what is possibly the most complicated socio-political novel ever written. Character studies of protagonist Winston Smith, his ally and love interest Julia, his nemesis O'Brien, and Big Brother himself give you insight into what it might be like to live in such an oppressed society, and the CliffsNotes Review and Resource Center will provide you with valuable tools for getting the most out of Orwell's classic novel.

Synopsis:

The original CliffsNotes study guides offer expert commentary on major themes, plots, characters, literary devices, and historical background. The latest generation of titles in this series also features glossaries and visual elements that complement the classic, familiar format.

CliffsNotes on 1984introduces you to the modern world as imagined by George Orwell, a place where humans have no control over their own lives, where nearly every positive feeling is squelched, and where people live in misery, fear, and repression.

Orwell’s vision of the future may be grim, but your understanding of his novel can be bright thanks to detailed summaries and commentaries for every chapter. Other features that help you study include

  • Character analyses of major players
  • A character map that graphically illustrates the relationships among the characters
  • Critical essays
  • A review section that tests your knowledge
  • A ResourceCenterfull of books, articles, films, and Internet sites

Classic literature or modern modern-day treasure — you'll understand it all with expert information and insight from CliffsNotes study guides.
