Outside, even through the shut window-pane, the world looked cold.

Down in the street little eddies of wind were whirling dust and torn paper into spirals, and though the sun was shining and the sky a harsh blue, there seemed to be no colour in anything, except the posters that were plastered everywhere.

There was one on the house-front immediately opposite. Down at street level another poster, torn at one corner, flapped fitfully in the wind, alternately covering and uncovering the single word INGSOC.

In the far distance a helicopter skimmed down between the roofs, hovered for an instant like a bluebottle, and darted away again with a curving flight. The patrols did not matter, however. Only the Thought Police mattered. The telescreen received and transmitted simultaneously. Any sound that Winston made, above the level of a very low whisper, would be picked up by it, moreover, so long as he remained within the field of vision which the metal plaque commanded, he could be seen as well as heard.

There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment. How often, or on what system, the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork. It was even conceivable that they watched everybody all the time. But at any rate they could plug in your wire whenever they wanted to. You had to live — did live, from habit that became instinct — in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized.

Winston kept his back turned to the telescreen. It was safer; though, as he well knew, even a back can be revealing.

George Orwell's Dystopian World. "Nineteen Eighty-Four" and the Pragmatics of (Mis)Understanding

A kilometre away the Ministry of Truth, his place of work, towered vast and white above the grimy landscape. This, he thought with a sort of vague distaste — this was London, chief city of Airstrip One, itself the third most populous of the provinces of Oceania. He tried to squeeze out some childhood memory that should tell him whether London had always been quite like this. Were there always these vistas of rotting nineteenth-century houses, their sides shored up with baulks of timber, their windows patched with cardboard and their roofs with corrugated iron, their crazy garden walls sagging in all directions?

And the bombed sites where the plaster dust swirled in the air and the willow-herb straggled over the heaps of rubble; and the places where the bombs had cleared a larger patch and there had sprung up sordid colonies of wooden dwellings like chicken-houses? But it was no use, he could not remember: nothing remained of his childhood except a series of bright-lit tableaux occurring against no background and mostly unintelligible.

For instance, she is intimately convinced that the state of permanent war waged by Oceania against other nations is sheer government propaganda and tactic intended to divert and thwart any form of domestic dissent.

Orwell seems to say that orthodoxy and official arbitrariness entertained by the rulers and imposed upon the ruled represent a perverse play at mutual mis understanding and are sheer insanity. Orwell warns from the outset of the novel that orthodoxy, taken to extremes, turns into pathology.

Winston Smith seems to be extremely sensitive and anxious all the time as if he is persecuted by some invisible adversary. Sometimes he is depicted deeply absorbed in his memories of the past because he distrusts the present and apprehends the future.

TITLE: 1984

An overall dispiriting mood of arbitrariness, of deliberate mis understanding and of cruel persecution abounds in Nineteen Eighty-Four. As an unremitting, political writer, novelist and essayist, Orwell has developed a keen sense of satirical fiction blending together an idiosyncratic poetics of his own and a refined art of political pamphleteering.

Throughout his prolific experience as a novelist and critic, he has committed himself to derisively denouncing ideological dogma and totalitarian imposture. The silent majority, in such stories, has come to accept and internalise the hegemonic diktat of the perversely de-liberalised tenet of laissez-faire, laissez-passer, without opposing any significant resistance. Any vague hint of resistance is nipped in the bud.George Orwell, and through Nineteen Eighty-Four, does not simply picture the major characteristics of a dystopian society but he also innovates the ways with which these characteristics could be developed by not only using these ways individually but also by making them co-occur together to create the extreme nightmare possible.

Apart from very short notes, it was usual to dictate everything into the speak-write which was of course impossible for his present purpose. Love of war Its depiction of a state where daring to think differently is rewarded with torture, where people are monitored every second of the day, and where party propaganda trumps free speech and thought is a sobering reminder of the evils of unaccountable governments.
