Sample of Related History & Literature on Shmoop

  1. 1984
    Another famous dystopian novel that explores a utopian society gone amuck, written in 1949 by George Orwell. This Orwellian classic focuses on what precisely can go awry when Big Brother is always watching. 

  2. Animal Farm
    George Orwell’s first brainchild was published in 1945, four years before 1984 hit the stands. Shockingly enough, this dystopian novel also satirizes the Russian Revolution to caution against the dangers that totalitarian regimes pose to personal liberties.
