George Orwell’s dystopian Nineteen Eighty-Four: A Novel envisions a future world divided into three superstates, all typified by totalitarianism. Oceania, where the despotic Party rules supreme, is the panopticon superstate in which the novel takes place. The Party demands absolute conformity in both action and thought from all inhabitants, on threat of vaporization. Despite this dire consequence, the protagonist, Winston, remains undeterred in his ill-fated attempt to undermine the Party. A significant aspect of Winston’s rebellion is internal, as he untangles decades of psychological manipulation that warps his understanding of humanity.
It is questionable whether this has also caused them to become arrogant and leads to their failures in their quests, but this imperfectness has definitely caused them to become memorable as they become closer to real human beings rather than the perfect traditional heroes. Winston’s rebellion only exists in his mind rather than his action, but he does have a strong sense of superiority over others. The fact that he calls Julia “a rebel from the waist downwards” shows the flaws in Winston’s personality, we can see his lack of respect to female, and it seems like their relationship is more likely to be a minor fight back to the party rather than something out of romantic love. Winston also stated that “She knew when to cheer and when to boo, and that was all one needed” suggesting that they lack real communication as well. All Winston wants Julia for is the sexual relationship they can have and the fact that she is someone that can listen even though she does not understand or have an interest in it.

From the beginning of the literary work, Winston opposes Big Brother and is in favor of a rebellion. Winston strongly feels that “if there is any hope, it lies in the proles” (Orwell 69).
