Nineteen Eighty-Four / George Orwell. - Londyn : Penguin Books, 2000. - XX, 325, [1] s. ; 20 cm.
(Modern Classics)
Słowo kluczowe: English novel ; dystopia
Hidden away in the Record Department of the sprawling Ministry of Truth, Winston Smith skilfully rewrites the past to suit the needs of the Party. Yet he inwardly rebels against the totalitarian world he lives in, which demands absolute obedience and controls him through the all-seeing telescreens and the watchful eye of Big Brother, symbolic head of the Party. In his longing for truth and liberty, Smith begins a secret love affair with a fellow-worker Julia, but soon discovers the true price of freedom is betrayal.

Najgłośniejsza powieść 2019 roku. Margaret Atwood po ponad trzydziestu latach wraca do świata ze swojej najsłynniejszej powieści „Opowieść Podręcznej”. I to w jakim stylu! Za „Testamenty” pisarka zdobyła Nagrodę Bookera. "Zawsze mówiłam „nie”, gdy proszono mnie o napisanie drugiej części. Ale jako że zaczęliśmy zbliżać się do Gileadu, zamiast się od niego oddalać, ponownie to przemyślałam" - powiedziała autorka w dniu premiery. Od wydarzeń przedstawionych w „Opowieści Podręcznej” minęło piętnaście lat. Sytuacja Republiki jest dramatyczna. Brakuje jedzenia, na świat przychodzą zdeformowane, słabe dzieci, umierają też Podręczne, czyli niewolnice, których zadaniem jest rodzić. W tym kraju przemocy żyją obok siebie Ciotka Lidia, surowa i okrutna funkcjonariuszka Gileadu oraz młodziutka Agnes, przygotowywana do roli Podręcznej. Ich losy obserwuje z jak dotąd bezpiecznego dystansu Daisy, nastolatka mieszkająca w Kanadzie. Jaki los spotka mieszkańców Gileadu? A raczej jaki los czeka świat, w którym powstał Gilead?

The handmaid's tale / Margaret Atwood ; with a new introduction by the author. - First Anchor Books movie tie-in edition. - XIX, 311 pages ; 21 cm
Offred is a Handmaid in the Republic of Gilead. She may leave the home of the Commander and his wife once a day to walk to food markets whose signs are now pictures instead of words because women are no longer allowed to read. She must lie on her back once a month and pray that the Commander makes her pregnant, because in an age of declining births, Offred and the other Handmaids are valued only if their ovaries are viable. Offred can remember the days before, when she lived and made love with her husband Luke; when she played with and protected her daughter; when she had a job, money of her own, and access to knowledge. But all of that is gone now…. Funny, unexpected, horrifying, and altogether convincing, The Handmaid's Tale is at once scathing satire, dire warning, and literary tour de force.

Animal Farm / George Orwell. - Harlow : Longman, 1996. - III, 119 s. ; 20 cm.
(Longman Fiction)
When the downtrodden animals of Manor Farm overthrow their master Mr Jones and take over the farm themselves, they imagine it is the beginning of a life of freedom and equality. But gradually a cunning, ruthless elite among them, masterminded by the pigs Napoleon and Snowball, starts to take control. Soon the other animals discover that they are not all as equal as they thought, and find themselves hopelessly ensnared as one form of tyranny is replaced with another. Orwell's chilling 'fairy story' is a timeless and devastating satire of idealism betrayed by power and corruption.

Animal Farm : a fairy story / George Orwell. - Londyn : Penguin Books, 2000. - XX, 113 s. ; 20 cm.
(Penguin Classics)
'It is the history of a revolution that went wrong and of the excellent excuses that were forthcoming at every step for the perversion of the original doctrine,' wrote George Orwell for the first edition of "Animal Farm" in 1945. His simple and tragicfable, telling of what happens when the animals drive out Mr Jones and attempt to run the farm themselves, has since become a world-famous classic of English prose. Includes Orwell's proposed preface that was discovered years after the first edition had been published, as well as his unique preface for the Ukrainian edition. Also contains explanatory footnotes.
