內容簡介

內容簡介 全球暢銷5千萬冊翻譯超過60餘種語言譯本20世紀百大英文小說戰爭即和平.自由即奴役.無知即力量──反烏托邦小說經典代表作一九八四年,世界劃分為三大超級國家,其中的大洋國,對外,永遠在和另一國打仗;在內,則是人民全都受到嚴密監控,不管是家中各處或是公共場所,到處都設有電屏,「老大哥看著你」。思想警察無所不在,人人互相監視,就連小孩也可以向黨舉報自己的父母思想不正確。然而,在真理部負責改寫歷史、抹煞過去的黨員溫斯頓.史密斯卻總想了解「真正的」過去,捍衛真理,擁有能說「二加二等於四」的自由。因此,四月晴朗寒冷的一天,當小說部負責維修小說寫作機器的黑髮姑娘茱莉亞主動向他示好,他便決定和她談一場禁忌的婚外情,兩人一起度過了甜蜜的懷舊時光,他們甚至決定加入反黨的組織,兩人義無反顧地向接頭的「內應」宣示叛黨的決心,誰知一切都是精心布置的陷阱……歐威爾出版於一九四九年的這部反烏托邦小說,既是寓言,也是預言,時至今日讀來,仍然令人戰慄心驚,其中的政治諷喻值得我們深深警惕,缺乏獨立思考和批判能力的危險,也令我們反思,在表面開放的今日世界中,內裡是否也暗藏了這樣的政治手段在操控我們的思想,而我們卻不自知呢?本中文書介出自《1984》時報文化出版企業股份有限公司出版George Orwell's masterwork, now in the Penguin Clothbound Classics series with a cover designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith One of the BBC's '100 Novels that Shaped the World' 'Who controls the past controls the future: who controls the present controls the past' Hidden away in the Record Department of the sprawling Ministry of Truth, Winston Smith skilfully rewrites the past to suit the needs of the Party. Yet he inwardly rebels against the totalitarian world he lives in, which demands absolute obedience and controls him through the all-seeing telescreens and the watchful eye of Big Brother, symbolic head of the Party. In his longing for truth and liberty, Smith begins a secret love affair with a fellow-worker Julia, but soon discovers the true price of freedom is betrayal. George Orwell's dystopian masterpiece, Nineteen Eighty-Four is perhaps the most pervasively influential book of the twentieth century.
