Dystopias—Anti-Utopias

George Orwell did it so well (especially in Animal Farm and 1984) that we now use the term “Orwellian” to name eras in which an ominous political malaise undermines civil (and civilizing) society. Aldous Huxley brought a very different but no less chilling perspective to his epic Brave New World. More recently, Margaret Atwood has given us The Handmaid’s Tale, with extraordinary insights into the subjugation of women under a totalitarian “theocracy.” All three help us in our current struggle to understand fear and hope.
