Chapter PreviewChapter Preview O’Brien explains to Winston that Room 101 is a person’s individual personal Hell. And what exactly would be the worst thing for Winston to be exposed to? Rats? Yeah, rats…O’Brien thretens Winston by showing him a cage of rats just waiting to feast on Winston’s face. Winston is utterly terrified, and just shots “do it to Julia!” O’Brien is officially satisfied. No more secret/mental loyalty = only party loyalty to Big Brother.
Places Room 101 Containing “the worst thing in the world, [which] varies from individual to individual.”
Faces O’Brien Winston Winston’s greatest fear
Items/Ideas to KnowItems/Ideas to Know Your greatest fear: the one thing that you cannot tolerate. What is a person willing to do to avoid the fear…?
Quotes “But for everyone there is something unendurable – something that cannot be contemplated. Courage and cowardice are not involved…” “[Winston] must interpose another human being. The body of another human being, between himself and [the fear].” “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 to the bones. Not me! Julia! Not me!”
Chapter PreiewChapter Preiew Winston has finally been “reformed” and now spends his time at the Chestnut Tree Café, drinking gin and playing chess. He is not the same person he was before, and is now very concerned over the current battles being fought in Africa. He remembers seeing Julia at one point; she has also changed and her face has been scarred...hmm…They agreed that torture works and agreed to meet again but nothing happens. He remembers a family memory and wonders if it’s false while listening to the telescreen and accepting the propaganda. He has an epiphany in the last line of the novel when he looks up at the telescreen and realizes that he loves big brother.
Places Chestnut Tree Café Winston has his own corner table Endless refills of gin Everyone avoids him

Items/Ideas to KnowItems/Ideas to Know Chess moves Symbolic in terms of Winston’s previous struggle White always seems to mate black Chess is a game of strategy, and Winston has lost (he has been out-maneuvered by the Party) False memories The Party leaves him alone, as he no longer is “trouble” to them
Quotes “’What happens to you here is forever,’ O’Brien had said. That was a true word. There were things, your own acts, from which you could not recover. Something was killed in your breast; burnt out, cauterized out.” “He was troubled by false memories occasionally. They did not matter so long as one knew them for what they were.” “…the long-hoped-for bullet was entering his brain…He had won the victory over himself. He loved Big Brother.”
