W hy's T his F unny?
The first mention of Winston's wife is peculiar: "Winston was married -- had been married, at any rate: probably he still was married, so far as he knew his wife was not dead" Winston seems to neither know nor care whether his wife is alive or dead. Consequently, he does not even know whether or not he is still married. The indifference towards his own marriage here is an indicator of the way that the Party has changed what marriage means.
Winston's indifference towards his marriage is further displayed when the narrator tells us that, "[f]or days at a time he was capable of forgetting that he had ever been married" In a society where love still exists in marriage, it would be hard to imagine someone forgetting that they had ever been married. The fact that Winston forgets his wife regularly displays how insignificant marriage became in Oceania after the Party separated love from it. Even while they were still living together, Winston and Katharine's marriage was not happy.
Katharine believed that it was their duty to have sex to create a baby for the Party and so she embraced the act as a chore. She would refer to it as "making a baby" and "our duty to the Party" 58 while Winston came to have a "feeling of positive dread when the appointed day [to have sex] came around" Neither member of the union enjoyed the act that joined them together and, consequently, they grew apart and eventually separated.
Winston's marriage is a failure to the Party because it produced no children, but it is the Party that creates the lack of attachment between Winston and Katharine. Although the Party wants its members to reproduce, it sees the destruction of love within marriages as more important. One reason for trying to remove love from marriage is so that loyalties among spouses would not become strong than the loyalty between the individuals and Big Brother.
In addition, the Party's "real, undeclared purpose was to remove all pleasure from the sexual act" The reason for trying to remove pleasure from sex was to keep the Party members focused on their duties. The Party did not want individuals to be so obsessed with seeking erotic pleasure that they would fail to perform their duties to society loyally.
As a result, "[s]exual intercourse was to be looked on as a slightly disgusting minor operation" 57 rather than something enjoyable that individuals would actively seek. This aversion to sex creates hostility within marriages and, as a result, the best that Winston could hope for from his wife's memory after they separated was for it to just go away.
Eventually, she "ceased to be a painful memory and became merely a distasteful one" When Katharine's memory becomes "distasteful" it is actually an improvement over the pain that it used to cause. Winston's marriage brings him nothing but agony because the Party has so successfully taken love out of marriage.
The Party is also able to destroy love outside of marriage such as that between Winston and Julia. Their relationship begins as hatred, blooms into a fulfilling love, and then is transformed into indifference. The entire progression of their feelings towards each other is manufactured by the Party. During their first unrecorded meeting, Winston offers a "love offering" by telling Julia what his feelings were before they met: "I hated the sight of you I wanted to rape you and then murder you afterwards" The mask that Julia put on to fool the authorities into thinking that she was a good citizen also fooled Winston.
As a result, he hated her for conforming so whole-heartedly like his wife did. But after he realizes that was just a facade that she put on to fool others, Winston falls completely in love with her. They take enormous risks to be together first in the countryside and then in an apartment rented from a prole. When the couple is questioned by O'Brien before their acceptance into the Brotherhood, they quickly agree to commit a whole list of atrocities including to "throw sulfuric acid in a child's face," to "commit murder," and even to "commit suicide" if doing so would help destroy the Party but they refuse to separate from each other.
Julia responds with a quick a decisive "No! The love that is displayed here is so strong that they are not willing to let it go for the Brotherhood even though they are willing to commit murder, suicide, and the maiming of children for the same cause. The only reason that this love was allowed to bloom was that O'Brien was cultivating the two, especially Winston, as opponents that he could crush later. If the Party had not waited to intervene, it would have been able to crush Winston and Julia's love before it ever became so strong.
Even though their love was seemingly so sound, it was eventually crushed by the tortures within the Ministry of Love. Not me! I don't care what you do to her. Tear her face off, strip her to the bones.
In this exclamation, O'Brien realizes that his defeat of Winston is complete. Winston has been crushed so totally that he would rather have Julia than him go through further torture. In this moment, all love for Julia is destroyed because, as she says later, "after that, you don't feel the same towards the other person any longer" By forcing them to betray each other, the Party destroys the love between Winston and Julia. The love between them is so completely shattered that Winston's "flesh froze with horror at the thought" of having sex with Julia after they had been released from the Ministry of Love.
The Party orchestrated the entire love relationship between Winston and Julia and allowed the love to develop only so that it could be crushed. In the absence of normal love between men and women, a strange love between the tortured Winston and his torturer, O'Brien, develops.
In the novel's first mention of O'Brien, we are told that Winston "felt deeply drawn to him" because "he had the appearance of being a person that you could talk to if somehow you could cheat the telescreen and get him alone" Before they ever speak to each other, there is an attraction between the two. In fact, Winston has dreams in which O'Brien speaks to him. What Huxley feared was that there would be no reason to ban a book, for there would be no one who wanted to read one.
Orwell feared those who would deprive us of information. Huxley feared those who would give us so much that we would be reduced to passivity and egoism. Orwell feared that the truth would be concealed from us. Huxley feared the truth would be drowned in a sea of irrelevance. Orwell feared we would become a captive culture. Huxley feared we would become a trivial culture, preoccupied with some equivalent of the feelies, the orgy porgy, and the centrifugal bumblepuppy.
As Huxley remarked in Brave New World Revisited, the civil libertarians and rationalists who are ever on the alert to oppose tyranny " failed to take into account man's almost infinite appetite for distractions. In Brave New World, they are controlled by inflicting pleasure. In short, Orwell feared that what we fear will ruin us.
Huxley feared that what we desire will ruin us. This book is about the possibility that Huxley , not Orwell , was right. O'Brien: Of course he exists.
Winston Smith: Does he exist like you or me? O'Brien: You do not exist. In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.
Even to understand the word 'doublethink' involved the use of doublethink. We shall squeeze you empty, and then we shall fill you with ourselves. No emotion was pure, because everything was mixed up with fear and hatred. Their embrace had been a battle, the climax a victory. It was a blow struck against the Party.
It was a political act. The past never had been altered. Oceania was at war with Eastasia. Oceania had always been at war with Eastasia. Vivid, beautiful hallucinations flashed through his mind.
He would flog her to death with a rubber truncheon. He would tie her naked to a stake and shoot her full of arrows like Saint Sebastian.
