Product Description
Host John Green

Crash Course Literature with John Green is back! This year, we've got a bunch of varying degrees of dystopia to talk about with you, and one mostly nice love story. We've got relatively short books full of big ideas, coming at you on Tuesdays for the rest of the year.

Here's the partial reading list:
1984 - George Orwell
The Handmaid's Tale - Margaret Atwood

Episodes 401 and 402
1984 by George Orwell, Part 2: Crash Course Literature 401
Dystopias

Episode 1 (401)
In which John Green continues discussing George Orwell's 1984. Today we're talking about what the novel 1984 has to say about what some have called today's surveillance society. We'll also look at the idea that language can be used as a means to control people's thoughts. Can something like Newspeak prevent a person from having certain thoughts? I wish I had the words to express how I feel about that. Luckily, John does have the words.
(Crash Course Synopsis 12:41)

Episodes 403 and 404
The Handmaid's Tale - Margaret Atwood, Part 1: Crash Course Literature 403
Dystopias

Episode 1 (403)
In which John Green teaches you about Margaret Atwood's speculative fiction novel, The Handmaid's Tale. John looks at some of the themes in this classic dystopian novel, many of which are kind of a downer. The world of Gilead that Atwood created looks at a lot of the issues that we deal with today, and the very human impulse to return to an imagined golden era, thereby solving all of our modern world's problems. Yeah, it doesn't work like that. (Crash Course Synopsis: 12:40)

Episode 2 (404)
This week, John Green continues to teach you about Margaret Atwood's speculative fiction, The Handmaid's Tale. In this installment, we're looking at Atwood's desire to tell a story from a female point of view, and what exactly it means to tell a story in that way, and if in fact there is an inherently male or female way to tell a story. We'll also look at why Atwood presents the story's final chapter from the perspective of a male scholar. (Crash Course Synopsis: 12:12)
