  • EXPOSITION
  • LOVE
  • CONFLICT
  • RISING ACTION
  • This is where the most important events start to happen. Winston and Julia both work for the Government. They work in the Department of the Administrative Truth. Their job in this department is to edit old history and produce propaganda to make the government look truthful. Winston begins to write hateful thoughts in his journal which is a "thought crime." Shortly after, Julia sends Winston a note stating that she loves him.  
  • CLIMAX
  • Winston and Julia start secretly meeting and having an affair. Doing this is treasonous.  They begin to question the government and Winston wants to find out more about the rebellion called "The Brotherhood," headed and influenced by a mysterious figure named Emmanuel Goldstein. Julia is less interested in revolting against the party, but she still decides to go along with Winston.  
  • FALLING ACTION
  • Winston places his trust in a man named "O'Brien," a member of the Inner Party who Winston believes is collaborating with the Resistance.  O'Brien provides Winston with a copy of Goldstein's book and Winston and Julia take it to their room.  The book does not shed any new light on the Resistance or the need to control the people.  
  • RESOLUTION
  • Chestnut Tree Cafe
  • After reading the book, Winston decides that if there is any hope to overthrow Big Brother's government, it lies in the proles because they are the greatest in number and they are not being watched as closely.  All of a sudden, the picture on the wall begins to speak and Winston realizes that its Mr. Charrington, a member of the Thought Police.  Mr. Charrington had set Winston and Julia up and they were arrested. 
  • Winston and Julia are brought to The Ministry of Love where they are tortured by O'Brien.  Winston is brainwashed which is the ultimate goal.  Winston is brought to Room 101 where his greatest fear awaits him - rats! When the rats are brought close to Winston's face, he tells O'Brien to do it to Julie because he doesn't care about her. O'Brien then knew that Winston's brainwashing was complete.  
  • Room 101
  • The story ends with Winston sitting at the Chestnut Tree Cafe, devoid of all emotions. He and Julia encountered each other once, but they had both been so affected by the torture that they no longer had feelings for one another. Winston absentmindedly sips victory gin, listens to the telescreen, and thinks quietly that he won the victory over himself and loves Big Brother.
