I can do one for you. We are introduced to Winston's bleak reality early on in the book. Winston feels dead inside. He struggles to remember his nightmares just so he can feel something real. He writes in his contraband diary as his only method of therapy and rebellion against the state. A Party member, Winston works at the Ministry of Truth correcting "errors" in past publications. Winston is also an amateur intellectual who nurses a secret hatred of the Party. To protect himself from discovery, Winston goes through the motions of outward orthodoxy, but relishes his internal world of dreams, memories and speculation about the past.
