A dream, that of freedom, inspires Ati, the central character of 2084. The End of the World, a novel published in 2015, in France, by Boualem Sansal, an Algerian author. In this work, ‘the end of the world’ has taken place. The powers of the North have been wiped out. Only one country survives, the ‘Abistan’, a theocratic empire based on ‘Acceptance’, the religion of this entity. No deviance is tolerated. The title refers to George Orwell’s novel, 1984, published in 1949, in England. The subtitle suggests that all freedom has disappeared. One individual, however, Ati, began to glimpse the ‘mystery of freedom’. This dream lives in him now. How is it translated into this story by an irrepressible aspiration, by a feverish quest and a vain research?
