George Orwell 1984 Rhetorical Analysis

Good Essays
In a society where members are oppressed and individuality is discouraged one would expect the members to be somber and depressed. Is it possible for someone to feel alive and have hope when living in this environment? One would expect that the answer is no and as one reads 1984 by George Orwell this would be reaffirmed. The protagonist Winston display symptoms of hopelessness and exasperation during Part 1. Then in part two Winston's tone shifts to hopeful even though his societal conditions have not changed. Winston forms a relationship with Julia and due to this he improves physically and mentally. This shift in tone can be presumably attributed to love.
Orwell conveys a dreary tone in part one which then transforms into a tone of optimism.
