Readers met Winston Smith and the dystopian future where he resides on June 8, 1949 when George Orwell's "1984" was first published. The novel's contents and political commentary have been the subject of study and debate ever since, but what, really, is the story trying to say?

Follow Sci-Fi 5 for your daily dose of science-fiction history.
