About the Title
Originally, George Orwell wanted to name the book, ‘The Last Man in Europe’. However, his publisher wanted to give the book a title that would symbolize the future. As a result, the publisher decided to name the book ‘1984', a name that is a reversal of the last two digits of ‘1948', the year when the book was written.
