`1985 is in two parts. The first part, called `1984`, is a series of essays and interviews (Burgess is the voice of the interviewer and the interviewee) discussing aspects of Orwell`s book. The basic idea of dystopia is explicated, and term `kakotopia` is also brought up, and explored etymologically. The etymology of the word `utopia` is also deconstructed. Burgess treats Orwell as being somewhat bound by his times. Orwell is seen somewhat as a war-exhausted Brit fearing the Soviet threat along with the spectre of atomic war. Orwell is treated as handling these ideas to the exclusion of other phenomena will come to alter British society. Burgess fairly well explicates the distinction between Orwell`s `Ingsoc` and the more mundane `English socialism`, as Burgess sees this actuality, in the Britain of his time.
The second part is a novella set in 1985, seven years in the future at the time of the novel`s being written.
Rather than a sequel to Orwell`s novel, Burgess uses the same concept. Based on his observation of British society and the world around him in 1978, he suggests how a possible 1985 might be if certain trends continue.
The main trend to which he is referring is the expanding power of trade unions. In the hypothetical 1985 envisioned in the book, the trade unions have become so powerful that they exert full control over society; unions exist for every imaginable occupation. Unions start strikes with little reason and a strike by one union usually turns into a general strike.
Another major theme of the novella is the rise of Islam as a major cultural and political force in Britain, due to large-scale immigration from the Middle East; London abounds with mosques and rich Arabs. Arab property ownership plays a major role in the story`s economic backdrop.
The protagonist is a school teacher, and somewhat of a proponent of Classicism. He is struggling within an education system which puts more stock in more directly practical approaches to study. He is also threatened by street toughs, from day to day. He gains status with them when he loses his professional status. They are outsiders, relative to the above-mentioned system. It is fashionable among them to embrace Classical studies, with a focus on, among other things, Greek and Latin linguistics.`
