Transcript of 1984 vs. Clockwork Orange
Whats love got to do with it?
Winston & Julia
relationship is all about scandalous affairs
all about committing thought crime and other rebellious acts.
hatred of Big Brother
At the end of the book, they didnt seem to need eachother,‘Do it to Julia! Do it to Julia! Not me! Julia! I don’t care what you do to her. Tear her face off, strip her t'o the bones Not me! Julia! Not me!’ "
Alex and his droogs(friends)
Alex is very dominant in the group showing no love nor affection towards his droogs.
no personal connection, all they do together is negatively impact the community around them
At the end of the book, they all went their separate ways in a sense." I don't like u should what you done, old droogy not right it wasn't to get on to me like the way you done, brat."
In both books, the government is trying control humans in way that takes away their free will.
In contrast, in
the government is trying to control thought,
the government is trying to control behavior.
Also in contrast, in
the government was not trying to make the world better they were trying to gain power,
they were trying to make the community a better place.
In general, the government is trying to fix things but its slowly taking away free will, in 50 years
would turn into
Monday, February 17, 2014
Vol XCIII, No. 311
Groups that have power over the people
Both scenarios, the main character is brainwashed
The government is trying to control humans (thoughts, feelings) , but at the end of the day, people have their own free will
Both Alex's and Winston's world have different languages
Both Winston Smith and Alexander Delarge have significant names that relate to great figures in history. Winston (Winston Churchill) Alexander Delarge (Alexander the Great)
In both books, the government watches what the suspected person does, but doesn't stop their actions until a great time later. (Example: The Party watched Winston commit thought crimes for years, but didn't arrest him until years later. In A
, the probation officer was always suspicous of Alex commiting crimes, but doesn't arrest him until Alex's friends betray him.
the government authority is more strict,
A Clockwork Orange
, the police/government aren't as strict, only coming out at night.
Winston is a nice guy who does bad things,
but Alex is an anti-hero that does good things/deeds
In the book Winston is 39
whereas in the but Alex is 15/17 in the book but in the movie he was much older.
In general, Alex is an observant person and cautious of his surrounding, but
Winston is more careless of whats around him
Winstons family was killed in great purge whereas,
Alex lived with his family even though he didn't care from them.
Also the government in
was trying to build a common hate,
, they wanted to make the world more peaceful.
1984 vs. Clockwork Orange
"War is peace
Freedom is slavery
Ignorance is strength"
"Perhaps one did not want to be loved so much as to be understood"
"You are a flaw in the pattern"
"You are a stain that must be wiped out"
"Oh my brothers"
"...So that going and coming I was 6655321 and not your little droog Alex not no longer."
"Because I knew what she sang. It was from an opera by Friedrich Gitterfenster called Das Bettzeug, and it was the bit where she's snuffing it with her throat cut, and the slovos are 'Better like this maybe.'"
Winston looks up to O'brien , trusting in him and giving his deepest secrets away,
just like Alex trusted his parol officer to not give him away to the rozz(police), arresting him, and later getting him brainwashed.
Winston has a person he love(julia),
whereas Alex has something he loves (classical music)
It toke O'brien a long time, tedious ,painful for Winston to betrayal Julia,
whereas Alex he would betray his droogs in a skorry heartbeat.
In both endings the two main charcters Alex and Winston change from when they started in the beginning of the book.
Winston was change due to the fact that he was forced to by O'brien and the government,
whereas Alex became tiresome of his violent ways and once to settle down like his droog Pete.
The overall theme for both of the books is that free will cannot be severed if the person is not mentally willing to give up their free will/hope.
The theme of
is that you can basically take away someones free will by using their own brain against them.
The theme of
is that someone can not be forced to change for the better, they have to truly and genuinely want to change.
