1984 Big Brother Interpretation

  1. 1. Davila Jonathan Davila English 4, P.4 April 21, 2010 Master of Puppets In the book 1984, we see the book mentioning Big Brother a lot throughout the story. While reading the book we are unaware if Big Brother really exist or is he just one big lie. In my presentation I will be showing a picture of how I see Big Brother and the way I see him controlling Oceania. In the book everyone is under control by the government and the leader Big Brother. My picture will show Big Brother as a puppet master controlling all the movements that go on in Oceania and controlling all the people to do what he expects them to do. I will be describing how Big Brother controls every aspect of the story and how he manipulates the way everything is portrayed throughout the story. In the novel, we do not know if Big Brother is a man or someone who was just created by the Party. In the Party’s propaganda, Big Brother is shown as a real person and is thought to be one of the founders of the Party along with Goldstein. In the story, People look up to Big Brother as there leader and everyone listens to him. Winston speaks a lot about Big Brother and believes he should be taken down, but 1

In the government of 1984 everything is controlled by Big Brother in the forms of 4 different Ministries. Each Ministry controls a different subject such as media, economic affairs and education. By controlling these problems he can change the way people view the world and make up things that aren’t even real to make people believe that they are living in a good world. In Oceania they have 3 slogans that are all over the place so everyone could see them. People are also surrounded by photos of Big Brother and are convinced they are being watched by him everyday without even knowing if he exists. Big Brother is a father figure to everyone in story. He makes people believe they need him even though they are unaware of his existence. Big Brother shows that the more we see and hear things the more we start believing. By controlling everything in Oceania, everyone will begin looking up to Big Brother realizing he is the reason why everyone is able to survive. Everyone is convinced throughout the story that they are living in a good world where they can receive everything from an imaginary 2
