Answer as many questions as you feel (just make sure you answer at least one)!
1) How does someone's past shape their future? How would Winston's life be different if he had not felt responsible for his Mother and Sister's possible deaths? What does Winston's past show about the society's past?
2) The meeting with O'Brien is a significant part of the book. If you were Winston would you go to O'Brien's house? Why or why not? Do you think O'Brien is trustworthy? Do you think the Party knows something is going on with Winston?
3) Explain the significance of Winston's views of love, feelings, and being human. This is an open ended question, you may take this however you feel. To jog your memory think about the mother's arms and Winston's conversation with Julia towards the end of the pages.
Thank you and hope you enjoy these questions and we hope you had fun in class!!
