“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten” – 1984, George Orwell
George Orwell’s property has authorised a feminist retelling of 1984 from the perspective of the character Julia, the love curiosity of Winston Smith.
Sandra Newman will creator the guide titled Julia, which she says will inform the occasions by a girl’s eyes, in accordance to The Guardian.
“It was the man from Records who began it, him all unknowing in his prim, grim way, his above-it-all oldthink way. He was the one Syme called ‘Old Misery’,” Newman says. “Comrade Smith was his right name, though ‘Comrade’ never suited him somehow. Of course, if you felt foolish calling someone ‘Comrade’, far better not to speak to them at all.”
As the Daily Wire’s Megan Basham notes, a rewrite of 1984 is all too ironic. The guide’s premise, set in a dystopian society, warns the risks of revising historical past and rewriting books for ideological ends. Now, 72 years later, it’s getting a “feminist rewrite.”
It’s true, each guide is rewritten.
Expect Julia to make waves. 1984 has skilled renewed recognition of late as readers have used the time period Orwellian to explain the present push for presidency management over the pandemic.
Film studios have already inquired in regards to the adaptation rights to Julia.
Newman will launch Julia after the debut of The Men, a novel by which each single individual with a Y chromosome vanishes from the world, subsequent June. Perhaps that’s a teaser of what Julia will entail.
