V for V, BNW Questions

  1. What historical and literary allusions did you see in V for Vendetta?
  2. What meaning do you think that this movie and novel should have for present day readers/viewers? Write at least 300 words.
  3. What Huxley feared was that there would be no reason to ban a book, for there would be no one who wanted to read one.  V (and Orwell) feared those who would deprive us of information.   Huxley feared those who would give us so much that we would be reduced to passivity and egoism.  V (and Orwell) feared that the truth would be concealed from us.  How similar methods of control do you see in both V for Vendetta and BNW?  What instances do you see of different methods to achieve the same results?
