Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
This essay is an attempt to describe how the author of the two novels Nineteen Eighty-four and Animal Farm, George Orwell, looked upon the world in the 1930´s and 40´s. The question is if these novels were to be considered as a relevant cry of warning, a prophesy at that time or if they just expressed the personal fears of the author. The essay examins how the events, charaters and symbols in the novels can be compared with reality at that time, a time when totalitarianism was a big issue in many countries and especially in the Soviet Union under Stalin. The attention surrounding the novels shows that they made a deep impression all over the world and the question is, was it a prophesy or just the personal fears of a man named George Orwell?
