Book Description GRIN Publishing, Germany, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 1. Auflage.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Seminar paper from the year 2003 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1, University of Hannover (Englisches Seminar Universitat Hannover), course: Utopias of the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries, 8 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: n the following paper I want to examine the relationship between Thomas Mores Utopia and George Orwell s Nineteen Eighty-Four. As both these texts offer a wealth of material for interpretation, I want to concentrate mainly on emphasizing the similarities in the desc ription of the political and social systems. I will attempt to underline these very essential resemblances by examining how life in Utopia differs from life in Nineteen Eighty-Four for the individual social being.

Taking Orwell s text into consideration, I felt that there was a striking similarity between the texts although they differed in their criticism and point of departure. What I want to explore in the following pages is to show how the political system of Utopia depends on an unyielding denial of human individuality, a denial that is an essential part of the ideology in Nineteen Eighty-Four. My main argument will be that Utopia is not the happy place it wants us to present, but a system of total control and oppression, very similar to Nineteen Eighty-Four. Although different in its overall impression, Utopia leaves a great deal of questions to the reader. The most striking one is, how the Utopia ns themselves evaluate the laws and rules of Utopia. Finally, I will attempt to emphasize the interrelationship and logical consequence of Anti-Utopia. Bookseller Inventory # APC9783638763219
