Orwell, George: Nineteen Eighty-Four. v1.1. 24 June 2009
Nineteen Eighty-Four is Orwell's dystopian vision of the ultimate totalitarian state.
There is a previously posted LRF version of Nineteen Eighty-Four on this forum, which closely follows the Gutenberg text.
This current version has been converted directly from the Project Gutenberg text, with the following enhancements:
Correct formatting of indented text (songs etc).
Fixed some typos and incorrect hyphens.
Proper use of opening and closing quotes, and apostrophes.
Correct use of italics for emphasised text, instead of CAPITALS.
"Smart" italics. Italics are rendered on the PRS with additional trailing white space, which can look a bit odd if italicised text is followed by punctuation, e.g., instead of "Is this italics ?", I have chosen to italicise the subsequent punctuation, e.g., "Is this italics?", which I think looks better.
I hope you like this version, and please let me know of any corrections.
