1984: Book 2, Chapter VII Summary By Anika Barua, Andrew Wang, Amy Yun, and Natalie Yung
Winston woke up crying in the middle of the night because of a dream connected to a memory that he had just had. Winston told Julia that he had believed he was the one who killed his mother for a very long period of time, however it was not physically.
He says that his father had disappeared a while back and he remembered the air raids and the shelters they had to take to be protected. He thought of his mother again, and how she became so unspirited when her husband had left and how he thought she knew that something bad was bound to happen to them.
He remembered the time when there had been chocolate rations of two-ounces for 3 people. He knew that each person would have to get an equal third, but he demanded for the whole thing. His mother instead gave him three fourths of the slab and the last fourth to his sister, but he took the fourth and ran off.
“If you loved someone, you loved him, and when you had nothing else to give, you still gave him love.” (Pg. 241-242) Even when Winston's mother couldn't do anything to protect Winston's sister, she still tried to protect her by caressing her.
After that, he thought of the proles and how they remained loyal to each other, not the party, not Big Brother, not Oceania, just themselves. They stayed alive, but not just that, they stayed human. Lastly, they agree to not betray each other by not stopping each other's love.
