    Some readers have felt that, even allowing for the bleakness of the times in which he lived, Orwell's vision in Nineteen Eighty Four is excessively grim and pessimistic. Explore various aspects of the novel from this perspective.

    4 star(s)

    The Second World War had only recently finished and the situation was improving but still bleak. Readers would have recognised the world Orwell so vividly describes with constant desolation throughout this political novel in relation to real events and people. O'Brien describes the overall outlook of the future as one image; "A boot stamping on a human face-for ever". This image sets hard in the mind, as readers of the time would easily recognise this with recent events in the past and real characters such as the Hitler and his n**i Party. By the end of chapter one Orwell has described Winston Smith and his ascetic life.
