This research aims to analyze the literary dystopians 1984, written by George Orwell and Fahrenheit 451 written by Ray Bradbury observing how these authors presented their reflections about their societies and how the human being was inserted in this context. In this perspective, the goal of this work is to demonstrate how the manipulation of memory and language reflects the contrasts between English and American dystopia in the works mentioned above and how the authors presented their critics to their societies. The discussions have presented theoretical support on the studies of Jacques Le Goff (1990), Maurice Halbwachs (2006) and Paul Ricouer (2008), which have highlighted aspects of memory and language that are common to both works, but were approached differently by their authors. This is justified by the fact that they belonged to different societies and the historical ideological context of post world wars in England and the United States was a determining factor to the emersion of dystopian literature and technological society even if differently in each country. This study also presents an overview on the science fiction, emphasizing the most representative moments of this literary strand in which the novels that make up the corpus of this work are inserted.
