Chiasmus was particularly popular in the literature of the ancient world, including HebrewGreekand Latinwhere it was used to articulate the balance of order within the text. For example, many long and complex chiasmi have been found in Shakespeare  and the Greek and Hebrew texts of the Bible. This process, termed "conceptual chiasmus", uses a criss-crossing rhetorical structure to cause an overlapping of "intellectual space". Effectiveness of chiasmus[ edit ] Chiasmus derives its effectiveness from its symmetrical structure.
Oceania, alongside Eurasia and Eastasia, is one of the three totalitarian superpowers into which the world is now divided. Engraved on the front of the huge white building that houses the Ministry of Truth are three Party slogans: Meanwhile, the nation is perpetually at war with either Eurasia or Eastasia, though as they are currently at war with Eurasia, the Party claims they have never been at war with Eastasia.
An equally important enemy is Emmanuel Goldstein, a discredited former leader of the revolution that brought the Party to power who supposedly now heads an underground resistance from abroad.
Winston still dimly remembers the time before the Party seized power and before his parents disappeared, and he secretly harbors unorthodox ideas. Meanwhile, Winston also becomes convinced that a young woman who works in the Fiction Department is spying on him.
One evening he takes the risk of skipping the government-sponsored group activities at the Community Center to take a solitary walk. Afterward, Winston takes the further risk of going into the junk shop where he bought his diary and chatting with the proprietor, Mr.
Charrington, from whom he buys a beautiful antique glass paperweight.
On his way out, Winston sees the woman from the Fiction Department coming toward him and rushes home in terror. Sometime later, in a corridor at the Ministry of Truth, Winston sees the same woman trip and fall on her arm, which is in a sling.
Winston regards the first time he sleeps with the free-spirited, sexually liberated young woman, who is named Julia, as a political act and believes unfettered sexual desire has the power to destroy the Party. Winston rents a room above the junk shop from Mr.
The room is old-fashioned, lacks a telescreen, and prominently displays the antique glass paperweight that Winston bought at the shop and now imagines represents the private world he and Julia have created.
They often hear a prole washerwoman singing in the courtyard below the shop. He and Julia talk about rebelling against the Party as well but are unsure how to do so.
Winston is convinced that he has finally made contact with the rebellion he always dreamed of. Winston is finally able to read it in the room above the junk shop after the employees of the Ministry of Truth spend a grueling week altering documents to reflect that the Party is and has always been at war with Eastasia.
The book explains how the Party claimed and maintains power, including its use of doublethink, a mental process by which an individual can accept whatever the Party says and then forget they ever believed anything different or engaged in this mental process at all.
Winston finds the book a reassuring articulation of his own beliefs about Party doctrine and believes its final message must be that hope lies with the proles.
Before he can finish it, however, he and Julia are arrested. Winston finds himself in the Ministry of Love, where he is kept in a windowless cell. For the next several weeks or months, Winston is brutally beaten by armed guards, then interrogated by Party intellectuals until he confesses to a long list of invented crimes.
After his release, Winston is no longer of interest to the Party. He and Julia see each other once in the park and confess that they betrayed each other.
Rather than feeling the desire he once had for Julia, Winston wants only to return to his usual table at the Chestnut Tree.By Peter Tonkin In the mid to late ’s a new craze swept through the fashionable youth of Europe, arriving in London at much the same time as the young Shakespeare.
