Timeline of the 10 important events in Chapters 2-4 AUTHOR Mariana Rojas Aguilera
Chapter 2The tension that the author tries to transmit thought out the first paragraph of chapter two, give us the shear panic in which Winston is, as someone knocks the door. He though it was the Thought Police, he was scared that as he "left the diary open on the table. DOWN WITH BIG BROTHER was written all over it, in letters almost big enough to be legible across the room."When he is in the apartment of Mrs. Parson, he is frightened about the Parsons children, who, being Junior Spies, accuse him "'You're a thought-criminal! You're a Eurasian spy! I'll shoot you, I'll vaporize you, I'll send you to the ...view middle of the document...

There was still air in the saloon, they could still see him and he them, but all the while they were sinking down, down into the green waters, which in another moment must hide them from sight forever. He was out in the light and air while they were being sucked down to death, and they were down there because he was up here." This is a metaphor, that makes an illusion to what it is passing in his life right now, if he does not do something to change its situation, of living divest of his civil rights, then he will be "sucked down to death".The repression of sex in the community is part of the party's oppression; Winston has a fantasy dream with a girl he desires but at the same time dislikes, he dreams of the girl in chapter one with the emblem of the Junior Anti-sex League, "The girl with dark hair was coming towards them across the field… she tore off her clothes and flung them disdainfully aside…but it aroused no desire in him, indeed he barely looked at it. What overwhelmed him in that instant was admiration for the gesture with which she had thrown her clothes aside…it seemed to annihilate a whole culture, a whole system of thought, as though Big Brother and the Party and the Thought Police could all be swept into nothingness by a single splendid movement of the arm." The antonym of the Party's ideology, No freedom of human pleasure, sex in his world is a taboo, but at the contrary sex in the ancient times was an act of love and was normal. Also this quote here "…it seemed to annihilate a whole culture, a whole system of thought, as though Big Brother and the Party and the Thought Police could all be swept into nothingness by a single splendid movement of the arm." Is telling us that he dreams, of it being as easy, as the girls movement of the arm, to liberate from a whole culture and system, that he isn't willing to live in any more."There was no knowing how much of this legend was true and how much invented" Everything that the party said was "melted into mist… Sometimes, indeed, you could put your finger on a definite lie. It was not true, for example, as was claimed in the Party history books, that the Party had invented airplanes.. He remembered airplanes since his earliest childhood. But you could prove nothing. There was never any evidence." This shows how brainwash the population was, Winston knew for sure that airplanes exited before Oceania, but the psychological manipulation make him wonder if he was mistaken or not. Doublethink was used to re-enforce the power over the population.Chapter 4"Wistons job was to rectify the original figures by making them agree with the later ones". The job...
