1984 George Orwell (Book Analysis): reading the Novel in Post-Trump Context is a literature guide and political analysis carried on the novel. The literature guide of 1984 is sure to enhance your understanding of the novel by George Orwell in the present political context. Apart for that, the books also contains many lietrary essays, including Modernism in TS Eliot`s The Waste Land, Unity of Being as a Philosphy in Yeats`s Poetry, JM Coetzee`s Disgrace and Racism in Post-Apartheid South Africa. Besides that, as a political book touching upon fascism and totalitarianism, you get many essays on Current State of Politics in India. Then there is another chapter touching upon literary topics such as Humanism, Existentialism, Absurdism and what`s the road in terms of literary studies.

1984 by George Orwell is suddenly a must-read? Why and how is so the case, the book tries to answer in post-Trump context. 1984 is not one of the greatest works of George Orwell for nothing. It is the documentation of humanity`s future: cultural, political, economic. This vibrant analysis presents the realization of George Orwell`s prophecies of imminent doom, archived in his monumental dystopian and prescient novel, 1984, in the context of the aftermath of the election of Donald Trump as the president of America.The Post-Trump context presents a horrific picture of:

a) Blatant governmental control,

b) Constant and severe kind of state surveillance,

c) Distortion of history to meet political ends, and

d) Rise of fascism throughout the world.

Adding to the title 'post-Trump context' doesn`t mean the brazen distortion is the handiwork of Trump alone. It doesn`t seek to attribute the horrible imagery to Trump alone, either.Instead, the book tries to bring home to the reader how openly after Trump`s election as president saw an unprecedented rise in pursuance of disruptive policies. Fear of public retribution and outcry has become irrelevant as divisive policies are being pursued with immense state force. Propaganda and news have become one. Politics rules over the minds of people. Voices of intellect and sanity are being pursued in the same manner as criminals and fugitives. Since we`re living the catastrophe George Orwell prophesied in 1984, it has made the book 21st-century must-read.

Disgrace Literature Guide by JM Coetzee, titled in the book as ‘JM Coetzee`s Disgrace and Racism in Post-Apartheid South Africa: A Postcolonial Analysis’ is a short and critical essay on the novel. The subject of racism in post-apartheid South Africa, as explored by Coetzee in his novel, Disgrace, undoubtedly demands a separate study of its own. Nevertheless, due to the dearth of such material, graduate and undergraduate students find it hard to lay hands on study material, which comprehensively and in a critical manner touches upon the theme of the double-blind of racism in the novel of Coetzee. It is hoped that the essay will be of great help to the students dealing with the novel of J. M. Coetzee, especially Disgrace.

‘Modernism In TS Eliot`s The Waste Land: Decoding Elements of Modernism in Literature’ is The Waste Land Literature Guide by TS Eliot. It is a critical essay examining the prominent and easily discernible elements in the poem The Waste Land that make it a profoundly modernist text of poetry, besides touching upon Modernism in Literature thoroughly.

Another essay in book is ‘Unity of Being as a Philosophy in Yeats`s Poetry.'
