You will never learn much more about the Brotherhood than that it exists and that you belong to it." (Orwell 171) O'Brien knows that Winston and Julia have feelings, and he uses those feelings to further entrap them . In order to have a successful rebellion one must have hope that one's cause will work. After talking about the perils of the membership of the Brotherhood he closes saying, "You will have to get used to living without results and without hope. You will work for a while, you will be caught, you will confess, and then you will die."
The reason why I endured desperation towards the extent of the book (1984) is, because Winston Smith has been fully and utterly defeated by the system. Throughout the course of the book, I was waiting and hoping that Winston would become victorious in some way. I truly dislike the society a lot and I agree with what Winston Smith is doing and I really want him to win. If he had won in some type of way, I would allege that Orwell is proclaiming that the human spirit will win in the extent of time.
The Communist philosophy quite literally expects its citizens to live merely as machines, serving their purpose to the greater good, yet never experiences the pleasures of being alive. Leo is left frustrated and despaired, as many bourgeois were, and began to partake in illegal private trade. This sense of desperation to return to the life of amenities which were at one time rightfully and legally his own, lead him to his arrest and later death. Like Kira, he became consumed with anger and desire to defeat the USSR’s
Passage (p. 25) He felt as though he were wandering in the forests of the sea bottom, lost in a monstrous world where he himself was the monster. He was alone. The past was dead, the future unimaginable. Commentary Prior to the passage, Winston sees banners bearing the word "INGSOC", causing him to once again reflect on the changes that the principles of the Party have made in his life. George Orwell uses metaphor, structure, and personification to show corruption of thought, establishing Winston's belief that society must resist the Party.
Michael Philbin Ms. Goodhall Junior English 8/5/12 Defects of the American Federal Prison System (Expo RD) The American Prison System has never been perfect, as there is no need to create a luxurious environment for the country’s criminals. However, this atmosphere of tension, violence and an overwhelming sense of binding incarceration has an effect on a prisoner’s psyche, a dangerous attribute of a person who may not always be isolated from regular society. Prison is a place of separation; a place where the delinquents of America are sent to pay for their crimes. While in prison, they aren’t met with friendly treatment or world class quarters by any means. It’s what they deserve for breaking our laws and our rules.
(3.3 29+32) The fatal flaw of the third conspirator, Cassius is that he is scared of what will happen to him after he murdered Caesar. Cassius and Brutus though that Anthony will turn Rome against them and realize what they did was wrong and their traitors. Cassius’s famous quote is “” Men at times are masters of their fates; the fault; dear Brutus, is not in our stars. But in ourselves””. (1.2 139-142) In conclusion, these conspirators lead to their own downfall by not listening to each other.
He can't think or act for himself, and he is just a toy of the government. He is useless to anyone and may as well be put to death, but he is kept alive. In conclusion, the characters in Animal Farm and 1984 have similar and distinct characteristics which contribute to the theme. Big Brother and Napoleon establish a totalitarian government while Winston and Boxer are subdued by the absolute
In Brave New World history is no longer necessary unless you are a world controller. History is not taught because it will not benefit the world state and they don’t want anyone to be deconditioned or start to rebel. Even without history the citizens of the world state are happy and some are conditioned to be afraid of books so they would not even dare to read if they are given a
Julia’s lifestyle makes it very hard to believe that Julia truly loves Winston. Julia does not love Winston. Although she claims to love Winston she has done too much in her lifetime and their society is filled with too many liars to be able to accept this claim of love as sincere. Like the Party members before him, Winston had to accept the fact that Julia never loved him but merely set him up for capture by the
Winston endures physically and psychologically tortures from O’Brien, but at last Winston betrays his own beliefs and supports the Big Brother, “He loved Big Brother” (298). After all the betrays from O’Brien and Julia, Winston cannot trust anyone anymore. This creates Winston’s mood of loneliness by staying in the society which no one is trustable. Eventually, this leads to Winston’s self-betrayal which means the Party successfully “cures” Winston to orthodoxy party member. Evidences of Winston thinks and acts as orthodoxy party member are “Almost unconsciously he traced with his finger in the dust on the table: 2+2=5” (290), “Winston was listening to the telescreen” (287), and one of the symbolic events is Winston plays chess alone, because this is what orthodoxy party members do.
