Sample text

He knew the form was useful for getting at the inner mind, for treating emotion and sex honestly. 22 Nonetheless, he needed a spokesman for his views, an individual who, in looking outward and inward, would illuminate the evils of a system. So although he kept the story in the third person, he wrote it from Winston’s perspective. Winston is the filter for nearly everything that happens in Nineteen Eighty-Four. His activities compose the action of the novel. He overhears or joins in the dialogue.

But its “schoolboy” melodrama produces effects that are consistent with his aims throughout this section. The victims of Room 101 surrender the last vestige of control over reason and autonomy. As terror repressed by the conscious mind takes over, their nightmares become their realities. To bring that terror home, Orwell shifts away from plainstyle. Prose and sanity degenerate together. Winston’s loss (of self and Julia) can be seen as a regression that culminates in premature senility. When he first rebels against the system, he is driven by anger and defiance, characteristics traditionally connected to an adolescent phase of development.

And since the term connotes two kinds of experience, terrifying dream and terrible reality, it tends to blur distinctions between them. “Nightmare situation” could describe Winston’s daily life; the context—a society governed by the 34 Sue Lonoff Party; the real-world threat that drove Orwell to write; and the totalitarian ethos that he satirizes. If a single term can encompass all these elements then it is likely, as well, to offer clues to the literary aspects of the novel. Those are the aspects I want to consider now, exploring them in terms of Orwell’s criteria—form and structure, character development, writing—to answer questions about fusion, control and the art of Nineteen Eighty-Four.
