What is Dystopia?

I love dystopian literature. What is a dystopia? According to the dictionary definition of dystopia is:

1) An imaginary place or state in which the condition of life is extremely bad as from deprivation, oppression and terror.

2) The document describes how a place or condition

When most people think of this concept, they think of science fiction. It is true that science fiction is a natural choice to appear for the dystopian themes, not every company has put income from science fiction books. "Lord of the Flies" is a great example of a dystopian novel, not fiction.

These activities are, by their authors as warnings about the evil or the evil that they see the potential given in society. This evil is possible in many forms. "The Handmaid's is a warning against the rights of women destroyed the basis of religion and" biological needs ". "1984" is the epitome of an anti-right, while the book "Brave New World" is the epitome of ananti-reservation left.

"Fahrenheit 451" by Ray Bradbury break into reality TV and what looks like an effect of "MTV" for decades has been known to be MTV. The destruction of the intellectuals and the resistance is caused by the prohibition of literature, and the replacement of books by television causes of this company is terrible in a free thought in all circumstances, be destroyed.

Dystopian novels are mostly associated with science fiction for this reason, like a futuristic world, it is easier to paint than one thatcurrently exists. Another genre that combined with the general post-apocalyptic dystopia, of course, as the two go hand in hand, since it is hard to imagine a big government out of the ashes of nuclear tents.

Dystopian novels remain popular for a long time, as the worlds that are painting, even as a character much more than any human being.
