1984 READING NOTES - SET THREE PAGES 157 - 224 SETTING - O'Brien's House - everything was intimidating, exquisitely clean. - The Brotherhood - organization working against the party, leader is Emmanuel Goldstein, impossible of knowing everyone in the organization - "The Brotherhood cannot be wiped out because it is not an organization in the ordinary sense. Nothing holds it together except an idea which is indestructible." (Orwell, 176) - The world state - somewhere completely fixed with one way of approved thinking, acting, etc. The Brotherhood becomes uncovered in this section of the novel. It becomes something real and helps to reveal more about the plot. It is confirmed that there is a Brotherhood, and that even members of the Inner Party are a part of it (such as O'Brien). It is an underground setting, its entirety undetected by the loyal party members, and this 'indestructible idea' can only set up more trouble for the next section of the novel, especially since now Winston and Julia have been caught. The setting that is to come in the next section will most likely completely undermine the power that the Brotherhood seems to now have. ...read more.


- A telescreen was hidden in the room behind the picture. It had caught Winston and Julia. Men in black uniforms enter and beat them. Julia is taken out, and Winston never sees her again. Mr. Charrington is a member of the Thought Police. The theme of control is thoroughly shown in this section of the novel. Winston prepares for a deep involvement in the Brotherhood, but he ends up being caught by the Party. The build up to this point was so great, beginning in the first section (with Mr. Charrington's shop). It seems as though the Party is at all angles, and the catching of Winston and Julia foreshadows trouble for the next section of the novel. CHARACTERS Winston Smith --> - Has a great admiration for O'Brien - "A wave of admiration, almost of worship, flowed out from Winston toward O'Brien." (Orwell, 175) - Becomes a member of the Brotherhood. - Is willing to take harsh measures in order to bring down the Party. Julia --> - Refuses to be seperated from Winston - will do whatever Winston will do. - Joins The Brotherhood with Winston, despite her non-belief in a large system working to undermine the Party. ...read more.


'You are the dead,' repeated the iron voice." (Orwell, 221) The diction that Orwell uses at the beginning of this passage reflects the calm and confident tone of Winston and Julia, and their hopes for the future. When he describes how they were after hearing the 'iron voice', you can tell that their demeanor has completely changed. Winston had "turned to ice", and Julia's face reflected her sheer shock. The change from comfort to fright was clearly shown through Orwell's use of words, and the way that Winston and Julia changed so quickly set the tone for what was/is yet to come. DICTION Words which I found new/interesting: Catechism Stratagem Debauch Luridly Haranguing Persiflage Oligarchical "When he spoke of murder, suicide, venereal disease, amputated limbs, and altered faces, it was with a faint air of persiflage." (Orwell, 175) per�si�flage -noun 1. light, bantering talk or writing. 2. a frivolous or flippant style of treating a subject. Own Sentence: The way that he regarded to subject with such persiflage made me want to hit him over the head with a book. OTHER NOTES Quote I liked --> "They could lay bare in the utmost detail everything that you had done or said or thought; but the inner heart, whose workings were mysterious even to yourself, remained impregnable." (Orwell, 167) ...read more.
