black and white, text, font, graphic design, poster,

Ah, the dystopian novel. Chances are, you read either “Brave New World,” “Fahrenheit 451,” “1984,” or “Animal Farm” in high school. Chances are you thought they were really weird but you were kind of picking up on those dystopian themes. A re-read is well worth the effort because your cultural, social, and political knowledge will truly change the way you look at these novels. Be aware, however, that the themes in these novels might make them seem more like horror stories in the context of our current society.
