If your latest assignment has you so confused that you're actually beginning to think that 2 + 2 does equal 5, then let CliffsNotes on 1984 help you navigate the tumultuous waters of George Orwell's dystopian world of Oceania. The expert commentaries and critical analyses in this study guide will help you decipher the Doublethink and Newspeak of what is possibly the most complicated socio-political novel ever written. Character studies of protagonist Winston Smith, his ally and love interest Julia, his nemesis O'Brien, and Big Brother himself give you insight into what it might be like to live in such an oppressed society, and the CliffsNotes Review and Resource Center will provide you with valuable tools for getting the most out of Orwell's classic novel.
