1984 vs. The Island vs. Brave New World
Transcript of 1984 vs. The Island vs. Brave New World
Each protagonist feels that there is a much more significant purpose than a stable society
Winston Smith: "If you are a man Winston, you are the last man."(283)
Bernard Marx: "He[Bernard] left the room with a swagger...elated by the intoxicating conciousness of his individual significance" (85)
Lincoln Six Echo: "I wanna know answers...more than just waiting to go to the island." Religion is dimissed and the birth of authorive figures (Big Brother, Mustapha Mond, Merrick's Island) arise...
1984: "[I belive in] the spirit of man" (282).
Brave New World: "Only be independent from god while you've got youth and prosperity; independence won't take you safely to the end" (206).
The Island: "The island is the one thing that gives [the clones] hope, gives [the clones] purpose."
1984: "I like to see them [victims of the gallows] kicking...and the tongue...that's the detail that appeals to me" (52).
Brave New World: "She [Lenina] was a popular girl, and at time or another had spent a night with almost all of them" (49).
The Island: "They [the clones] never achieve conciousness, never think, suffer, feel pain, love, joy, it's a product and therefore not human"
The forbiddance of curiosity is practiced in order to attain an idealistic society...
1984: "The diary would be reduced to ashes and himself to vapour" (29).
Brave New World: "I want God, poetry, real danger, freedom, goodness and sin" (211).
The Island: "They’re like children, education to the level of a fifteen year old."
The elimination of creative freedom...
1984: “Don’t you see that the whole aim of newspeak is to narrow the range of thought?...In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words with which to express it.”
Brave New World: if [Lenina] were an Epsilon…[her] conditioning would make [her] no less thankful that [she wasn’t] a Beta or an Alpha.”
The Island: Due to the discovery of the moth the new found falsehood led Lincoln Six Echo to question everything and think “outside the box.” Defiance against the superior powers...
1984: “There was no trial, no report of the arrest. [Their] name was removed from the registers, every record of everything [they had] ever done was wiped out… [they] were abolished, annihilated: vaporized was the usual word.”
Brave New World: “methodically laying out… the more ferocious of the fighters.”
The Island: “[he has] brought [them] into this world… [he] can take [them] out of it.” Sacrifice of Individuality...
1984: "The individual only has power in so far as he ceases to be an individual... But if [one] can make complete, utter submission, if he can escape from his identity, if he can merge himself in the Party so that he is the Party, then he is all powerful and immortal.”
Brave New World: “Universal happiness keeps the wheels steadily turning [while] truth and beauty can’t.”
The Island: “A responsibility for the facility to continue to operate.” The bastardization of the sexual act results in the breakdown of traditional relationships which may undermine the state’s authority...
1984: “hated [sex], but nothing would make her stop doing it. She would call it “her duty to the Party.””
Brave New World: “at one time or another, had spent the night with almost [all the men in the elevator].”
The Island: “To avoid obvious complications”
The female protagonists...
1984: “Except when it touched upon her life, she had no interest…”
Brave New World: “Free. Free to have the most wonderful time.”
The Island: “Why [he] always question[s] the good [and] only think[s] about the bad.” Jordan Two Delta Julia, 1984 Lenina, BNW Historic significance...
1984: Written 1947, just two years after the end of World War II.
Brave New World: At the time of writing, 1932, the world was still reeling from the effects of the 1929 Stock Market Crash and the resulting worldwide economic depression.
