1984 is a presentation of Orwell’s definition of dystopia and was meant as a warning to those of the modern era. What specifically is Orwell warning us against, and how does he archive this?


First we should know what dystopia is, it is, the total contrary of utopia, a place in which the government, laws, and social conditions are perfect, so a dystopia would be a place where people are unhappy and usually afraid, because they are not treated fairly. George Orwell, warns us, the people from the modern era, to be aware with the injustice that a truant or dictator wants to impose on us. Sometime, we may be fooled by the media, and the government may have an eye on you all the time, and may threaten you to death if you complain of the form of government, and you still do nothing about it


He achieves this, by making the reader disagree with the form of government s dictator imposes into a society, making the reader see how unfair that is by making the main character live the consequences of an unfair life that the reader wouldn’t want to live. It’s kind of propaganda in literature, the reader will have to take one side on the story, and Orwell tries to make that side be the one that does not imposes an unfair way of living to a society.
