George Orwell’s 1984 tells the story of a man named Winston Smith attempting to escape the constant oppression he must face in a post-World War II totalitarian society. Winston struggles to be himself in a place that holds him back. With non-stop monitoring, Winston has to figure out how to rebel against Big Brother without dying. He does so by acquiring a book and a lover. His response to the poor standard enable him to experience happiness and some sort of freedom for a brief amount of time.
The aforementioned quotes illustrate the extent of Winston’s desire for change and revolution, which can be inferred by the structure, language, and context present in the quotes. For example, the leading quote displays Winston’s desperation for change, as seen by the use of “hope” and the simple sentence structure of the statement. The use of “hope” shows that Winston’s desires hinge upon the proles, thereby illustrating the extent of his nonconformity; he is willing to place the burden of his own humanity upon the undereducated masses of society, because they are not restricted by the party’s orthodoxy, as opposed to viewing them as mindless cattle.

Not only does Nick serve as a vessel that Fitzgerald uses to narrate the story, but also is placed amidst the climactic plot-- “where he is and where he stands is as important to the story’s import as Gatsby… like Marlow, Carraway provides a moral center” (Eble 40). Nick’s mesmerizing voice and physical presence in the book urges readers to examine his presence in peculiar ways. This is another indication of how Fitzgerald manipulated scenes and excerpts of the novel to get the effects he wanted. To conclude, with the use of Nick’s unreliability due to his lack of self-constraint, the reader is forced to differentiate between reality and fantasy as Nick Carraway provides not only a
