And, yes! Winston soon gets in touch with O'Briena member of the Inner Party whom Winston believes is secretly a member of The Brotherhooda resistance organisation dedicated to overthrowing the Party's dictatorship. In addition, he is paranoid. We are shown that Winston has started his job at the Ministry of Truth by this time.

Who knew, perhaps the Party was rotten under the surface, its cult of strenuousness and self denial simply a sham concealing iniquity.

Winston smith personality

Because Winston is so real, so common, it is easy for readers to identify with him and to imagine themselves in his place. What's worse? He buys it at the same second-hand shop he bought his journal at, from a kindly old man named Mr. The brainwashing is a success. In addition, he is paranoid. This includes his journal, which has creamy paper, and a paperweight. They separated after only two years of marriage due to the lack of conceiving. During one Two Minute Hate, Julia is right behind him and Winston feels an intense hatred for her: simply because she is a woman who would never want to have sex with him and, he figures, is a spy. So, like a bag of chips stuck in a vending machine, Orwell comes back around to ruin our day Week? We'll have what they're having. Instead Winston loves Big Brother. Winston embodies the values of a civilized society: democracy, peace, freedom, love, and decency. He is particularly curious as to why The Party is going through all the pains to ensure that history is rewritten to favor it. The past was dead, the future was unimaginable. He ran away and never saw his family again.

Its depiction of a state where daring to think differently is rewarded with torture, where people are monitored every second of the day, and where party propaganda trumps free speech and thought is a sobering reminder of the evils of unaccountable governments.

Winston ends up seeing the broken men one of them shedding a tear during a speech by Big Brother at the Chestnut Tree Cafe and soon after they are never seen from again. However, his spirit finally breaks when he is taken into Room and confronted by his worst fear: the unspeakable horror of slowly being eaten alive by rats.

We'll have what they're having.
