In the 20th century, the feeling of anxiety, horror and insecurity which was the result of two world wars and the dissolution of the British Empire, led to a rise in dystopian fiction.

Dystopias described our world in the future taking dangerous tendencies of the time and presenting them in a exaggerated worst-case scenario, therefore making a criticism about a current trend, societal norm, or political system.
