In the book 1984, the villainous qualities of the Party create the biggest impact on the story by causing hatred, converting minds, and creating a new Winston. The Party’s approach to life has not always been for everyone, including Winston who frequently gets angry at their actions. In the beginning of the book, Winston says he was writing, “as though by automatic action… DOWN WITH BIG BROTHER” (1.1.18). His thoughts and actions toward Big Brother and the Party have become so strong that he is involuntarily writing words against them. Winston also resents the rule that there can be no love in Oceania, and leaps at the chance to break it.
Rebellion is an element of dystopian literature that George Orwell uses throughout the novel 1984. In a dystopian society where the citizens are dehumanized, rebellion occurs because the people living in these rigid societies are denied dignity and freedom. Winston, the protagonist in George Orwell's 1984, lives in a dystopian society of repression, ruled by Big Brother. Unlike other characters in the story, Winston does not fall for the guise of Big Brother. Winston not only distrusts the tyrannical ways of Big Brother, he rebels and engages in illegal acts to gain his freedom.
Shaw crafts these nasty words to display how many men felt during the time period of a woman who chose to go out and make a life for herself. This underlying tone that money is only okay if it is respectable arises within Frank’s communication to Vivie, with Frank going so far to say that “if [Vivie] ever put your arm around her waist in my presence again, I’ll shoot myself there” (Shaw 1812). This ridiculous and hyperbolic claim calls further attention to Frank’s disrespect for Mrs. Warren in that his fragile masculinity has been so attacked by her disapproval of marriage that he feels the need to influence Vivie. This conversation points out the irony in Frank’s thought process, where

In 1984 there were examples of irony shown by; the names of The Ministry of Love, The Ministry of Truth, and the arrest scene for Julia and Winston. The Ministry of Love, and its name is very ironic in 1984. There is really no leaving the Ministry of Love; they completely manipulate your thinking.

Then he meets the anti-social Cathy who “never opened her mouth. I stared--she stared also”. Lockwood then encounters Heathcliff who is the character that is most like the bleak rough terrain, when he gives orders to Cathy Lockwood said the order was “uttered so savagely that I started. The tone in which the words were said revealed a genuine bad
Griselda fulfil the king's every single whim, even though it hurts her. She behaves as if she were his servant, not a wife. Her husband does not consider her as a queen or attractive woman due to her descent. To his mind, she is much worse than him, an obedient peasant who will never say "no". Thirdly, the king has difficulty in trusting and confiding her, in spite of fulfilling his will impeccably.
Both authors use a different type of conflict to interpret the effects of society. For example in “Fall . he house of Usher,” Edgar Allan Poe demonstrates that the main character Roderick has been in a consistent isolation since his early years, after society abandons him. Roderick is influenced by the negativity of society which leads him to respond negatively. “I shall perish, said he, I must perish in this deplorable folly.
Through the novel, we can see how Gilead negatively affects the psychology and mentality of the handmaids that makes them to give up to the system and brain washes them. One example is Janine. She is rejecting her victimization and ignorant of her own victimization, Janine looks revolting, pathetic, and distressed. For example, Offered describes Janine as pitiful since she tries to fulfill Gilead’s roles. She describes her how she throws herself into the testifying and feels arrogance in describing her rape story and abortion; subsequently, feels guilty when she had done nothing wrong.
With that, the warnings and morals imbedded in the text are some that should be examined and noted. A recurring theme within Bradbury’s writing is, people are dispensable. Mildred Montag, the protagonist’s wife, is a morbidly depressed woman who is one of the many victims at the heart of this truth. With not much of a connection to her husband, she turns to technology to help numb her. She is constantly listening to her “seashells,” our equivalent of earbuds, blocking out who and what is happening around her or engaging with the television instead of spending time with real people.
Another element in this novel is Melinda’s inner conflict, man vs. self. What Melinda has been through greatly affected her everyday life. She struggles with depression, dislikes her appearance, and feels ashamed of herself for something that isn 't her fault: “I want to confess everything, hand over the guilt and mistake and anger to someone else...even if I dump the memory, it will stay with me, staining me” (Anderson 51). Andy Evans, the senior who raped her, made her feel worthless. This situation is much like the one in the novel The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins.
The people in George Orwell’s 1984 are dehumanized using many ways by the inner party. They have a hard life because they don’t know simple everyday things that we take for granted. When we show emotions and do what and think what we want it is something that the people of Oceania don’t have. They don’t have freedom from the government. The Outer Party controls everything using many methods.
Winston Smith, the main character in the novel, faced many emotional challenges throughout the book. The problems that he encountered were primarily a result of his strong opposition toward the government of Oceania, which was more commonly known as “the Party”. The Party controlled every aspect of people’s lives, to the point where one wrong thought or physical action could cause brutal punishment. Although Winston was a minor member of the Party, he still secretly despised the way it had inflicted a totalitarian society upon him and the rest of the nation. All citizens were brainwashed to live in complete orthodoxy, and any act, no matter how trivial, that was displeasing to the Party was looked upon as a serious crime.
Throughout the novel A Secret Kept, character’s attitudes change with discounted memories. When Antoine’s mother passes away their family loses bonds with each other and must lock up their painful feelings. Antoine reveals, “I remembered after my mother’s death, how he clammed up, how the tender kisses stopped, how he became demanding, inflexible, how he criticized, how he judged, how he made me feel wretched” (286). Hiding such an unbearable experience only allowed it to grow bigger. His inner pain demolishes the happiness he once had and changes his personality entirely.
