In The Crucible, by Arthur Miller, Miller uses one of his main characters, Abigail, to cause fear among the townspeople due to witchcraft.

Thesis: In George Orwell’s 1984, symbolism of Big Brother is used to illustrate the recurring motif of propaganda used to control reality through the rise of surveillance, ultimately instilling a sense of devotion through fear in the citizens of this totalitarian government. Throughout the novel, these effects result in complete government control, thus illustrating how surveillance ultimately leads to tyranny. Body Paragraph 1: Big Brother is the symbolic figurehead of Oceania, a totalitarian state wherein the Party has complete control over all citizens. The citizens are taught that Big Brother is the leader of the Party, and will administer the torture of anyone who rebels.
