One thing that is obvious when reading the novel”1984” is Orwell’s criticism against totalitarianism, his way of describing a potential future dystopia indicates his apprehension for the future. By exaggerating the development and restrictions of his contemporary society, he creates a fictitious community that is, in several ways, frightening. Therefore, rarely can one avoid scrutinize one’s own situation and compare it to the protagonist’s one. Which presumably is a deliberate action, well elaborated by Orwell


Consequently, readers start to inquire politics in their entourage and observe presently small matters that are capable of growing to intolerable extent. Especially the problems referred to in the novel, such as the threat of totalitarianism. However, understandable concerning the current form of government in several countries during Orwell’s lifetime, where different dictators, despite varying ideologies, in similar ways rule respective countries.


Moreover, the conflict in the book appears to be an external conflict between Winston (the name of the protagonist) and “The Party” which is the only and therefore logically ruling party. Nevertheless, the actual conflict takes place within Winston regarding his perpetual hesitation between taking action against “The Party” and refrain from it. Whereof the first alternative entails immense danger since “The Party” does not accept dissidents and constantly superintends the population through large, frequently recurrent, telescreens and microphones. Hence, it is utterly complicated to organize any kind of rebellious organization that involves more than a single individual. This is indeed a vital issue that has to be dealt with further on in the novel, with hopefully an interesting outcome.
