At a time when nothing seemed to be in order, George Orwell wrote a book about complete control over everything. The world was at war for the second time when Orwell wrote this book about a controlling country ruled by an evil man named Big Brother, and a man named Winston who fought against the corruption. Orwell changed the world with his work which put tragic events in perspective for people who were not directly affected by the struggles of war and violence. George Orwell, as a democratic socialist, used the Russian Revolution and World War II, his abuse in school, and his role as a soldier in the Spanish Civil War to write his dystopian novel 1984. George Orwell was influenced by the outcome of the Russian Revolution and World War II which caused him to fear a totalitarian government.
