Orwell seemed to believe that the real world, as opposed to that of his feverish and genuinely diseased imagination, was moving in the direction of bigger and worse cacotopias.
1985 by Anthony Burgess
Here Anthony Burgess makes a remark about Orwells belief. As I understand Burgess says that Orwell thinks that real world is moving towards cacotopias. And Orwell's imagination is opposed to this.
But in the book "1984" we see that Orwell's imagination too shows the same. So in 1984 the world is cacotopian. And also moves to worse cacotopias.
So why Burgess says that "Orwell's belief is opposed to this imagination"?
