A novel should always be cited in the following format:

Last name, First Name. Title. City: Publisher, Year.

For 1984 that would look like this:

Orwell, George. 1984. London: Secker and Warburg, 1949.

As for the electronic citation, it would depend on the webpage and its contents. I can at least give you a general citation for webpages according to the MLA style (the style always used for literary papers):

Complete publication information may not be available for a Web site; provide what is given.

Title of the Site. Editor. Date and/or Version Number. Name of Sponsoring Institution. Date of Access .

For example:
Encyclopedia Mythica. 2004. 13 May 2004 .
