The setting of the novel in the previous chapters we're in the "classical" 1984 society like places such as Winston's apartment and the cafeteria inclyding his cubicle. All of these settings implya sense of superficiallity. While the setting changes from tse mentioned above to an open grasland with no telescreens, the vastness implies the amount of freedom there is. This leads onto the point where they are free from he party manipulation. Therefore it was a political act against the party. Their relationship also becomes closer than ever which further symbolizes their freedom and the the return of human emotions.
