Julia and Winston awake in a cell, tied next to each other. The deadening, filthy, horrid cell inside the Ministry of Love. Winston focuses and regains full concentration. He shakes Julia and brings her to the identical state as himself. They both look at each other, with determination to finish things forever.
Even though he is married, he and Julia have an affair that combines their personal desires as well as their desire to fight against the Party as it is explicitly stated in the novel. Winston and Julia both willingly participate in the affair because they are both moved to action by the Party’s acts of injustice. Winston is aware that the Party has blatantly outlawed “love” and Winston wants to feel romance in order to spite the Party. Both Julia and Winston would do anything to spite Big Brother. In addition to the love factor, Winston isn’t just participating because Julia is youthful, more so because he is drawn to the act of power. Winston isn’t just resisting power, he feels the need to hold
Having a passionate relationship is no longer a foreign concept to Winston, he now loathes it. When having a conversation with Julia he thinks, “. With Julia, everything came back to her own sexuality." As soon as this was touched upon in any way she was capable of great acuteness.”. Winston does, in fact, enjoy the sex, but after seeing Julia for months at this point, he realizes their differences. Julia is focused on having a sexual relationship with people, but not committing anything that would affect the integrity of the party’s rule. When Winston thinks, “ With Julia, everything came back to her own sexuality”, it is showing the signs of a disconnect. While the love for Julia has not changed in this passage, his quest for anti-Big brother actions is not fully satisfied. The physical relations between Julia and Winston only scratches the surface on what Winston desires.
Julia is first shown as a sexless figure since she is a member of the Anti-Sex League. When Winston first sees Julia, he does not know her name. He only knows that she works in the Fiction Department. Winston “disliked nearly all women, and especially the young and pretty ones. It was always the women, and above all the young ones, who were the most bigoted adherents of the Party, the swallowers of slogans, the amateur spies and nosers-out of unorthodoxy” (10). This demonstrates that at the beginning of the novel, he does not like Julia. He thinks that she is dangerous, and wants to get him in trouble. He thinks that she is a member of the thought police and that she will turn him in. This proves the assumptions of men and how Winston just assumes that Julia is dangerous. According to Meia, a writer for Medium, “Winston started out hating Julia simply because he wanted to have sex with her. In knowing, or assuming, that that would never happen, Winston finds himself cheated out of something that he feels he ought to have” (Meia). Winston does not like Julia because he feels like she will get him in trouble, but he has an attraction toward her. With her Anti-sex League sash, he thinks that she will follow the rules of the Party. He feels like if he would have sex with the young and beautiful Julia without getting caught, then that would be the ultimate rebel and they will defeat Big Brother. Winston thinks that all women in Oceania are all complete followers of the Party and will not disobey the laws. However, Julia's appearance deceives Winston, and he finds out that she is unorthodox and has the same intention as he
Winston has been repressed from any sexual activity and having Julia has brought many ideas into his head. He is both scared and excited from thinking about her and is not sure that it is the right thing to do. Winston is also scared that she would leave him if he doesn't get to know her in a timely fashion.
Winston has an obsession with her after their first encounter, revealing she had made an imprint on his mind, which is the seed of his love for her. After making love with her, “At the sight of the words I love you the desire to stay alive welled up in him” (Section 2 Chapter 1). This brief passage illustrates his growing affection for her along with the relinquishing of a primal desire
“I love you” would be said to Winston by a girl he did not know at all. His impression of her had been one of uneasiness and animosity; he questioned why she seemed to follow him around and believed her to be a member of the Thought Police or an “amateur spy.” Though he lacked any actual knowledge about the girl, Julia, he immediately accepted her initiation of a relationship. This relationship looked to be one of physical intimacy rather than any sort of emotional dependency; Winston’s fornication with Julia seemed to be his personal way of rebelling against the anti-sex policies. He would feel as though he were revolting against the Party and Big Brother and this appeared to be the only rebelling Winston would do. This type of sudden acceptance of an anti-Party offer, regardless of any evidence from the character, would not be Winston’s first. He had made eye contact with a member of the Inner Party, O’Brien, and decided “he knew...that O’Brien was thinking the same thing as himself. An unmistakable message had passed. It was as though their two minds had opened and the thoughts were flowing from one into the other through their eyes. ‘I am with you,’ O’Brien seemed to be saying to [Winston]. ‘I know precisely what [Winston is] feeling. I know all about
Appearances are at the center of our lives. In work situations there is an expected way of dress, schools may vary from lax to strict dress codes, and physical appearance is what people judge one another by. In 1984 by George Orwell there is one basic dress code. If one fails to conform to the society of Oceania in any regard soon they may simply vanish from existence. Julia is someone who’s life revolves around how she displays herself.
I, Creon, solemnly swear to speak the truth and only the truth under the name of the one and only god, Jesus Christ. I’m here to defend my case of the accusations against me. They say I am a thief, a traitor, a murderer. They think i betrayed my family and double crossed them. They say I put them in an unspeakable situation of family over true love. They say I didn’t trust my son and that all of this could have been answered in a simple question made up of four words. “Do you love me?”
An indication stated by Winston “You’re only a rebel from the waist down” (Orwell 163). This observation shows that instead of thinking her body was pure and should stay virgin till marriage. She thought her body was more of a tool used to rebel against big brother ridiculous restrictions. A second indication is “He worries there might be microphones hidden in bushes, but feels reassured by the dark haired girl’s evident experience. She tells him that her name is Julia, tears off her Junior Anti sex League sash. Winston becomes aroused when they move into woods and make love (Spark Notes). That claim proves that Julia is not looking for anything serious as she is greatly quick to undress herself and bed herself with Winston. This claim also proves that she had been in that type of predicament with other guys witch shows that Julia is the relationship type. The third indication is “Julia replies in a typically shallow fashion she is only interested in herself and Winston in the present” (Enotes 2). This shows the Julia is not looking for anything long term in Winston, but like the pleasuring feeling that he gives her currently. This confirms that the relationship Winston wanted is not what Julia was looking for and reminds the readers that she is only looking out for
124, a spiteful, grey and white house on Bluestone Road, a home where many reminisce details of their brutal and inhumane treatments. Many in which are unable to accept their past and look into their future. Toni Morrison concludes the novel “Beloved,” with an inconclusive phrase, “It was not a story to pass on...This is not a story to pass on,” suggesting the path of the characters to come. Throughout the novel, Beloved, the ghost of Sethe’s murdered daughter and a representation of slavery, forces the characters to recognize the pain from their past before they can work through it. Her presence causes Sethe, Denver, and Paul D. to come to terms with themselves before she disappears. These characters might try and forget Beloved but the
Callum shouldered his sack, eyes focused on the back of the man before him, trying not to think about the ache in his feet, the soreness of his back, the grime that layered his body. “Just keep marching, keep moving” Callum repeated in his head like a mantra.

They both felt like they needed to rebel against the country's regulations. Winston wanted to outwardly rebel against the government.

In the poem, The Love song, written by T.S. Elliot, J Alfred Prufrock is a man who is very lonely and insecure. He goes throughout his life wishing for a change, but never stepping up to the plate and actually making a change.

The reader soon found out later that the poem is just the opposite from the title, a sad, lonesome man who is not only lacking love, but also lacking self confidence and self esteem.
