On Nineteen Eighty-Four

A Biography

DJ Taylor

DJ Taylor, the literary critic and award-winning biographer of George Orwell, investigates the origins of Nineteen Eight-Four, showing how incidents and obsessions in the author’s early life, including the Spanish Civil War and the early Cold War years, shaped elements of the novel and particularly its view of totalitarianism. Taylor then traces the creation of the novel on the island of Jura, linking the writing to Orwell’s life and examining the lasting impact of his dystopian vision.
