He begins to try to meet Julia without being caught by the party. Julia also becomes part of the Brotherhood.

Another theme is that love overcomes loneliness and alienation, and brings people together.Slide Four- ExcerptsWinston: "Until they become conscious they will never rebel, and until they have rebelled they cannot become conscious," Winston is referring to the proles, the poorest part of Oceania, that he believes are the key to rebellion."The ideal set up by the party was something huge, terrible, and glittering- a world of steel and concrete, of monstrous machines and terrifying weapons- a nation of warriors and fanatics, marching forward in perfect unity, all thinking the same thoughts and shouting the same slogans, perpetually working, fighting, triumphing, persecuting- three hundred million people all with the same face."Everything you do, Big Brother can see and hear through the telescreen. No place is safe."These quotes show the control of Big Brother and the party over every aspect of society and its citizens.Slide Five-The entire novel has a mood and tone of depression, despair, fear, hatred, control, and power.The novel, although depressing, is very well written and does a great portrayal of a totalitarian or communist government. It is also a great representation of the Soviet Union under Stalin and Germany under Hitler. Animal Farm, also by George Orwell, is a book somewhat similar to this. Readers that enjoyed Animal Farm, and like Sci-Fi or historical books would probably like 1984 the most.Slide Six-WAR IS PEACEFREEDOM IS SLAVERYIGNORANCE IS STRENGTHBIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU
