All the tercets or haikus, apart from the last, are direct quotes from 1984. They flow on into the reality of my own, questionable words.
'The Last Man in Europe', was considered by George Orwell as the title for the novel, but Arthur Koestler is said to have suggested 1984, as a reversal of the year of writing, 1948.
'Pyongyang' is the capital of North Korea, and while the Korean War, had not yet started when Orwell wrote the novel, the writing was on the wall already and he is said to have been influenced by the immanent threat of nations clashing yet again.
Winston and Julia are the main protagonists in 1984.
