John R. Reilly


Contends That Hideous Strength and 1984 have the same theme, “that an objective view of morality is necessary for worthy human life.” Notes “similarities between the didactic devices which the authors employ,” such as Belbury/Oceania and Studdock/Winston, especially in their torture/ indoctrination. The biggest difference is in the resolution of both novels.
