Writeacher, I'd like you to check questions from 1 to 4 and improve them. Thank you very much.


1) Give a detailed description of Winston Smith as it appears in the opening to George Orwell's 1984. Refer to the place where he lives, the instrument used by the party to monitor his life, and his job within the party.
2)Describe (I need a synonym) the end of the novel pointing out how Winston's personality has changed (I don't know how to complete this question)
3) How does the novel end? What do Winston and Julia admit to each other? Whom does Winston now love?
4) What are the three slogans of the Party? Explain why they are contradictory providing a definition of doublethink.
(The answer to this question should include the following things:






(From his place Winston can read the three slogans of the Party: War is peace; freedom is slavery; ignorance is strength. Each of these is contradictory to what we normally believe. The slogans are analyzed in Goldstein’s book and embody the party. For instance, through constant war, the Party can keep domestic peace; when freedom exists, the people are enslaved to it; and the ignorance of the people is the strength of the Party. This type of misuse of language is called doublethink. One consequence of doublethink is that the Party can rewrite history with impunity, for “The Party is never wrong.”)

    2) Describe (I need a synonym) the end of the novel pointing out how Winston's personality has changed (I don't know how to complete this question)
    Try this: The strength of a story is how its events change the main character. Summarize the ending of this novel, emphasizing how Winston changes from the beginning and what specific events produced these changes.

    3) OK

    4) What are the three slogans of the Party? Explain why they are contradictory and provide a definition of doublethink in your explanation.
