Transcript of Doublethink

By: George Orwell
Presentation by: Ollie Landauer
Grade level: 9
My goal is to demonstrate different types of titles that are italicized or in quotation. I will demonstrate this by Creating Illustrator posters that advertise different titles. I will describe what method of formatting is used for each title.
Italics are used when there is a "big" form of writing, such as a novel, album, or epic poem. A piece of writing that may include other titles will almost always be italicized.
Quotations are used to punctuate titles that are part of a bigger whole. These may include, but are not limited to, individual songs, short poems, short stories, and news stories.
Goal #1
Goal #2
Goal #3
Goal #5
Goal #4
Goal #6
My goal is to identify forms of poems. I will demonstrate this by finding different type of poems that relate to 1984 and create a matching game.
My goal is to interpret use of irony in literary text. I will demonstrate this by finding 3 examples (one for each type) and explain why it was used.
My goal is to identify as many examples of allusion, hyperbole, and foreshadowing as I can in Chapter 1 (104 pages). I will demonstrate this by writing down the figurative language and writing a) what it alludes to b) why it is a hyperbole or c) what it foreshadows.
My goal is to know the correct usage of using (") and (') to distinguish quotation within a quotation. I will demonstrate this by finding 2 different examples in 1984 and writing 2 examples of my own based off of the book's examples.
My goal is to identify use of ellipsis (...) in a sentence. To demonstrate this, I will find 3 examples used in 1984 and put them into 3 individual Bitsrips.

Question #3
O Let us rant, O young, for soon we die,
Too old to matter, let us have our say;
For soon enough, you will your hand shall try;
Time cometh soon that might you have your day.

If you succeed, you’ll not respect the dead,
But jeer and mock us all within our graves;
But old are we, who’ve seen so many tread,
And end, as ill, their chosen path as slaves.

So time and time again, your plans will fail;
But ne’er will you remember how we warned;
By then, our warning will to no avail;
Nor, of us, memory, but were we scorned.

If honest, you would scorn yourselves as well;
Deep down, this brave new world, you knew were Hell. 
Answer #3
Question #4
Their love was like a raging war,
Answers hidden behind closed doors.
Accusations made unjustly right,
But together they talked throughout the night.

Life isn’t always fair,
Sadly we each receive our share.

Time was yelling as each second ticked by,
Thinking of her till morning was nigh.
Dreaming of him at this lonely hour,
In his arms, she doesn’t cower.

Life isn’t always fair,
Sadly we each receive our share.

Together they are two hands on a clock,
Always connected, always locked.
Though taken apart so unfairly so,
For a reason their love will never know.

Life isn’t always fair,
Sadly we each receive our share.

Is the above poem a
a) ballad
b) limerick
c) haiku
d) lyric
Answer #4
The answer is
A) Ballad
Question #5
Big Brother he is always watching you
And nothing unbeknown to him you do
Of his attentions none of us are free
We never can escape his scrutiny.

Big Brother is one we never get to know
Though he spies on us where ever to we go
Our sixth sense tells us he is never far away
He never cease to watch us night and day.

Big Brother is an agent of the State
And few would wish to have him as a mate
No respect for your privacy he show
And due to him the Government about you most thing know.

Is the above poem a
a) haiku
b) lyric
c) limerick
d) ballad
Answer #5
The answer is  
B) Lyric
The answer is
A) Sonnet
verb. to show or indicate beforehand
noun. the act or practice of making a casual or indirect reference to something
• "Winston woke up with the word 'Shakespeare' on his lips." pg. 31
• "…'English Socialism,' that is to say-it had been current earlier."
"'Lackeys!' 'e says. 'Lackeys of the bourgeoisie!'" pg. 90
"Chaucer, Shakespeare, Milton, Byron-they'll exist only in Newspeak versions…" pg. 53
This alludes to Shakespeare, which is in the past.
This allusion refers to the period of English Socialism.
On page 53, this quote alludes to
the famous authors in the past.
This quote alludes to the bourgeoisie, which is an upper-class of France.
Hyperbole #2
"they’ll shoot me I don’t care they’ll shoot me in the back of the neck I don’t care down with big brother they always shot you in the back of the neck I don’t care down with big brother-" pg. 19
noun. obvious and intentional exaggeration
"…battered metal tables and chairs, placed so close together that you sat with elbows toughing…" pg. 59
"The stuff was like nitric acid, and moreover, in swallowing it one had the sensation of being hit on the back of the head with a rubber club." pg. 5
• "'Parasites-that was another of them." pg. 90

This is a hyperbole because if Winston actually drank a liquid like nitric acid, he would not be alive.
The quote on page 19 is a hyperbole because it is an exaggeration of what the government will do to Winston. No one knows for sure what the government does.
This quote is a hyperbole because if people were really sitting with elbows touching, no one would actually be able to sit down.
A human may be like a parasite, but they are not parasites. Saying a person IS a parasite is a hyperbole.
"We shall meet in the place where there is no darkness." pg. 25
"But when Winston glanced again at Rutherford's ruinous face, he saw that his eyes were full of tears." pg. 77
"The Thought Police would get him just the same. " pg. 19
"'Here comes a chopper to chop off your head…'" pg. 98

"One day he will disappear. It is written in his face." pg. 53

This quote foreshadows that Winston will likely get caught be the Though Police.
Winston had a dream that O'brien said this to him. He thought that O'brien would meet him in London after they overthrew Big Brother. However, Winston actually meets O'brien in the prison where the lights never turn off. Therefore, this is foreshadowing.
Winston thinks this thought at Syme, a person who works on a dictionary for Big Brother. Syme knows too much and is extremely smart about what is going on around him. The government does not like people like this, so they made Syme disappear. This quote foreshadowed his disappearance.
Wintson sees Rutherford crying, a man who was caught by the Thought Police and learned to love Big Brother. Upon hearing a song, he starts crying. This foreshadows what happens to Winston when he is caught and released.
An ominous song, the verses were repeated many times during the book, foreshadowing that something was going to happen to the main character.
irony involving a situation in which actions have an effect that is opposite from what was intended, so that the outcome is contrary to what was expected
irony that is inherent in speeches or a situation of a drama and is understood by the audience but not grasped by the characters in the play
irony in which a person says or writes one thing and means another, or uses words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of the literal meaning
"War is peace" pg. 4
"The emblem of the Junior Anti-Sex League was wound several times around the waist of her overalls, just tightly enough to bring out the shapeliness of her hips." pg. 10
"Victory Mansions" pg.4
This example of verbal irony was used in 1984 because it demonstrates just some of the many contradicting slogans that the people living in this setting are exposed to. The term "doublethink" means that a person can hold two contradicting thoughts in their head at the same time and they both make sense. George Orwell used this example to show people how the citizens were similar to sheep: they did what ever they were told.
Julia, who is being talked about above, is basically a prostitute. This is irony because a women who belongs in the Junior Anti-Sex League is not supposed to be a prostitute. George Orwell added this in to show that there were some rebels, and that they usually hid in places where the law wouldn't look. Who would expect a prostitute to be part of the Anti-Sex League?
Victory Mansions are anything but. They are the equivalent of slums. Poor housing, improper plumbing, and a terrible stench would be pretty obvious to most people that these housing conditions are poorly named, right? However, the citizens in Airstrip One (London) don't notice or don't care that they are living in slums. "Victory Mansions" is dramatic because as readers, we can see that the place is a slum while the characters don't believe so. George Orwell added this into his novel because it demonstrates just how much people will contradict what they see to fit what they know. (The government leads the people to believe that it is nice housing.)
Goal #4
My Example
"No, Jaz," Sliv reprimanded, shaking his head. "It's not 'pulchricrapinous'. It's 'pulchritudinous'."
My Example
With a straight face, E.J. quoted, "'To be, or not to be, that is the question', D.J."
We burst out laughing.
"' Take 'good' for instance. If you have a world like 'good,' what need is there for a world like 'bad'? 'Ungood' will do just as well-'" pg. 51
Book's Example #1
"'Lackeys!' 'e says. 'Lackeys of the bourgeoisie!' Flunkies of the ruling class!'" pg. 90
This example demonstrates the use of using (') to quote someone when a character is speaking.
E.J., the character speaking, quotes Shakespeare's play to D.J., her friend.
Book's Example #2
This example exhibits how (') is used when referring to a specific word.
Sliv is telling Jaz that it is THIS specific word, not THAT specific word.
Example #1
"One-two! One-Two!. . ." pg. 35
Bitstrips #1
Example #3
"This motive really consists. . ." pg. 217
Bitstrips #3
Bitstrips #2
Example #2
"The aims of these three groups are entirely irreconcilable. . ." pg. 184
This example of ellipsis replaces the words et cetera, meaning that the counting continues. Even if the author doesn't write how long the counting goes on, the (. . .) represents that.
This example demonstrates when someone falls asleep while reading or talking. The thoughts or words slowly drift off and fade out.
The ellipsis represent someone trailing off because they are distracted.
1984 by George Orwell is a utopian novel based on the government’s constricting control over its citizens. Wanting to escape from the oppressive government, Winston, a middle-aged man, silently rebels. Writing in an illegal diary, Winston writes to future generations about the ferocious government. He is a pessimist who says that Big Brother, the iconic government figure, will find him. However, he finds some comfort in a fellow rebel, Julia. Together, they live their lives how they want. When Winston and Julia start trusting people blindly, they are betrayed. Will Winston and Julia be able to survive the horrors of the government, or is they too much?
The book 1984 by George Orwell was interesting in content but the writing was very repetitive. Without a captivating hook and with a long intro, the book was extremely difficult to get into. There were too many details and not enough action. However, I did not mind reading the book after I got into it. There were very intriguing concepts that are unique to George Orwell. Overall, 1984 would not be a book that I would read again.

1984 is still an iconic book today. Many people think of the NSA as a Big Brother sort of government. They watch and monitor what everyone is doing, similar to Big Brother. Also, many governments today are carefully watching their citizens for rebellion. In addition, people are fearful of one political party gaining too much power and turning out to be similar to the government that ruled Winston. In conclusion, 1984 is widely used and alluded to today.
