For Inner Party members, Big Brother is a leader, a bogeyman they can use to scare the people, and their authorization for doing whatever they want. If anybody asks, they can say they are under orders from Big Brother. For the unthinking proles, Big Brother is a distant authority figure. For Winston, Big Brother is an inspiration. Big Brother excites and energizes Winston, who hates him.
The main character is Winston Smith, a man who works for the party and is supposed to change history to match what the party has told him. Winston lives in a society where he is constantly listened to and watched by telescreens and microphones to make sure he is enthusiastic about hate, and to make sure he doesn’t commit any crimes. Everywhere Winston goes he always sees posters that say, “Big Brother is Watching You.” Big Brother is the party leader that may or may not be real. The official language of Oceania, the country where Airstrip one is located, is Newspeak. Newspeak is the only language in Oceania that lessens it’s words each year so that it is harder for people to commit thoughtcrime.
The quote above was said to be a nursery rhyme, yet, it turned out to be a gruesome truth to how they denounced each other to the party that enforces the rule under Big Brother. 1984 is a perplexing novel because of its constant use of symbolism, irony, and imagery. 1984 is a mind boggling novel mostly in part by his abundant use of symbolism. Throughout the novel George Orwell puts meanings into small and delicate items that, until the end of the novel, one may not quite catch. The easiest example of a use of symbolism in 1984 was the glass paper weight.
Through the use of themes, symbols, and dynamic characters, Orwell creates a novel that is intriguing and a political statement about all totalitarian regimes.

These are not the only important characters; Orwell uses many minor characters for crucial statements and understanding of the book. One example is when Parsons speaks to Winston and says, “What I mean to say, there is a war on” (Orwell, 1984). These minor elements playing large roles in the story show how the book is very intricate and involves more than just a small group of people.

Power of Manipulation In George Orwell’s novel 1984 the civilians of Oceania live under the manipulative powers of Big Brother that drive the people to extreme obedience. Big Brother is the leader of the party and the authoritative figure who all people obey. As a dystopian society numerous techniques are used to keep the population of Oceania under control. The party enforces many crude laws to keep the population of Oceania from revolting against the government. Above all ways of controlling the people of Oceania, the most effective are the telescreens because they are in the homes of every civilian and everywhere they go, they monitor their every move including their pulse, and they are used for manipulating people through propaganda.
Pullman has written a basic adventure story laced with multiple themes, metaphors and ideas. He uses intertextuality to enrich his text and enhance his ideas and arguments (Squires, 2009).

This definition suits the description of propaganda in the novel 1984 by George Orwell. The Inner Party is pushing the concept of “Big Brother,” the ultimate leader. But words can have multiple meanings and can leave room for interpretation. In an alternate definition, from The Analysis of Propaganda by W. Hummell and K. Huntress, propaganda is defined in a different manner: “Propaganda means any attempt to persuade anyone to a belief or to form an action. We live our lives surrounded by propaganda; we create enormous amounts of it ourselves; and we f...
From the very beginning of the book, the government is already shoving fear down on top of the citizens of Oceana. This threat is not all bark either, but all citizens are being monitored by cameras and microphones everywhere. In every single room there is a “telescreen” with propaganda of how great the country is. Nazi Propaganda leader Minister Joseph Goebbels said, "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it." And that is exactly what Big Brother did.
