Eduardo Martinez2ndperiod1.“He disliked nearly all women, and especially the pretty and young ones. It was always thewomen, and the young ones, who were the bigoted adherents of the Party, the swallowers ofslogans, the amateur spies and the nosers-out of the unorthodoxy.” (pg. 12)This part of the book is important because it reveals the overall role and views for women in thissociety. They are seen as the ones to deceive you and expose you to the wrath of the Party. Thisspawns hate in individuals towards them, much like it did for Winston who wanted to kill thewoman that he saw during Two Minute Hate. Other than that, the way that women are viewed inths society can also relate to how they are viewed outside of the book, in the real world at thetime. Since their rights and capabilities are expanding at this time, this portray in the book canrepresent how many people still viewed women at the time historically. It is possible that therewere several people who were still against the idea that women were beginning to have morerights, creating spite towards them. It can also hold to expose the true nature of women at thetime, by saying that even in real life they are sneaky individuals who cannot be trusted. Thatinstead, power should be relied and put only in the hands of men, since they can be trusted. Thisgives the overall message that perhaps women are much more powerful than they are givencredit for, and for that reason, men should keep control over them to prevent any cases of deceit.2.“Parsons was Winston’s fellow employee at the Ministry of Truth…An overpowering smellof sweat, a sort of unconscious testimony to the strenuousness of his life followed him aboutwherever he went, and even remained behind him after he had gone.” (pg. 22)The description of Parsons’ character is important to the book as it shows how a perfect Partymember should act and be like overall. Parsons is described to be very active in the communitythey are in by leading hikes and activities. His doublethink is great as he blindly follows thesudden changes of enemy in the war without missing a beat. He also does not complain about theliving conditions even though they are horrible, by our modern standards at least. And to provehow loyal of an Outer Party member he is, he is even grateful when his daughter turns him in tothe Thought Police so that he would not cause any damage. All of these factors prove thatParsons is the ideal model for a Party Member. This is even reflected in the noticed importancein the smell of his sweat. It is noted that it leaves a notable smell even when he is gone, showingthat Parsons is indeed a hard worker for the Party. This type of character gives the message to thereader that being the the perfect model, especially in a society like this one, is not always the bestsince much like Parsons there is a lack of individualism. The uniqueness that one has is strippedaway and replaced with an ordinary character who is oblivious to the reality around them.
