I still have a few more sentences on the same theme. I really hope you can look at them too.

1)In any case, the face of Big Brother symbolizes the Party in its public manifestation; he is a reassurance to most people (the warmth of his name suggests his ability to protect), but he is also an open threat (one cannot escape his gaze).
2) Big Brother also symbolizes the vagueness with which the higher ranks of the Party present themselves—it is impossible to know who really rules Oceania, what life is like for the rulers, or why they act as they do.
3) Though Winston is a member of the ruling class, his life is under the Party’s oppressive political control. 4) In his apartment, an instrument called telescreen, which is always on, shows a dreary report about the production of pig iron and the accomplishment of the Ninth Three-Year Plan.
5) The telescreen is described as “an oblong metal plaque like a dulled mirror which formed part of the surface of the right-hand wall” The telescreen is described as an oval metal object fully integrated into the right wall and spouting propaganda. (?)
6) It received and transmitted all the time. Through it the Thought Police are known to monitor the actions of citizens.
7)Winston keeps his back to the screen. From his window he can see the Ministry of Truth, where he works as a propaganda officer.
8)In particular, he alters historical records to match the Party’s official version of past events.
