Middle

- Although Julia knows that one day they will be caught by the Thought Police, she tells Winston to stop thinking about such morbid thoughts and to focus more on the present. Chapter 4 - - Winston rents a room about the junk shop and with the convenience of the owner, Mr. Charrington, he and Julia use it as a place where they can be together, almost as an ordinary couple would have lived back in the "abolished past" - He knows that this is a dangerous expedient, since it makes discovery more likely, but as working hours have been increased with the approach of Hate Week, it has become more and more difficult to arrange meetings. - When Julia first joins him in the room, she brings a bag full of luxuries which she has managed to obtain, items such as proper sugar, bread, coffee and tea. - Normally these foods are only available to members of the Inner Party. She tells Winston she has a surprise for him and makes him turn his back for a short while. ...read more.

Conclusion

Chapter 6 - - O'Brien asks Winston whether he knows that 2 of the words used in his articles have been made obsolete in the latest edition of the Newspeak Dictionary and invites him to his home to see a copy. - In raising this subject, O'Brien mentions a friend of Winston's who is an expert on Newspeak. The reference can only be to Syme, but he is now an "unperson" and any thought of him is a "thoughtcrime". - This convinces Winston that O'Brien must be a conspirator against the Party who is covertly inviting him to make contact. - Winston is anxious to do so, but is also frightened, because he believes it to be a further step towards his death. ...read more.
