Hopelessness and powerlessness

Alone "Asleep or awake, working or eating, indoors or out of doors, in the bath or in bed — no escape. Nothing was your own except the few cubic centimetres inside your skull" (Orwell 13) "He was alone. The past was dead, the future was unimaginable. What certainty had he that a single human creature now living was on his side?" (Orwell 14) Fear, Danger, Suspense "Your worst enemy […] was your own nervous system. At any moment the tension inside you was liable to translate itself into some visible symptom." (Orwell 36) "To be killed was what you expected. But before death (nobody spoke of such things, yet everybody knew of them) there was the routine of confession that had to be gone through: the grovelling on the floor and screaming for mercy, the crack of broken bones, the smashed teeth, and bloody clots of hair." (Orwell 58) "Nobody ever escaped detection, and nobody ever failed to confess. When once you had succumbed to thoughtcrime it was certain that by a given date you would be dead." (Orwell 58) "No emotion was pure, because everything was mixed up with fear and hatred." (Orwell 68) Joy, Hope, Defeat, Acceptance Atmosphere and Mood in 1984 By: Philip Wu "But there were also times when they had the illusion not only of safety but of permanence." (Orwell 88) "No," he said a little more hopefully, "no; that's quite true. They can't get inside you. If you can feel that staying human is worth while, even when it can't have any result whatever, you've beaten them." (Orwell 97) "To die hating them, that was freedom."

Room 101 "The hallway smelt of boiled cabbage and old rag mats...It was no use trying the lift. Even at the best of times it was seldom working" (Orwell 1) “Hot, crowded, noise-filled canteen” (Orwell 61) "Getting there was difficult and dangerous, but the room itself was sanctuary." (Orwell 88) "The thing that is in Room 101 is the worst thing in the world." (Orwell 146) Angst


Powerlessness "Life, if you looked about you, bore no resemblance not only to the lies that streamed out of the telescreens, but even to the ideals that the Party had to achieve." (Orwell 42) "What you say or do doesn't matter: only feelings matter. If they could make me stop loving you—that would be the real betrayal." (Orwell 76) "He hardly knew why he had ever rebelled."
