Curious book, ... Winston. A favourite of literature teachers, before 1984. I read it in the 70s. It was claimed that 1984 was already here. One thing that struck me about it, if they were pumping out and refining their propaganda, who was their audience if everyone was being repressed? You pretend to work, we'll pretend to pay you. I sold you, you sold me, under the Chestnut Tree cafe. Oranges and lemons say the bells of St. Clemens. Big Brother. 1984.
