Winston Smith—Winston is a common bureaucrat working as a propagandist for the government’s Ministry of Truth. He rewrites old articles and speeches so that there is no evidence that the Party and Big Brother have ever been wrong or inconsistent. He is good at his job but secretly hates the Party. His romantic ideals about an opposition movement are used against him as a top Party official sets him up and allows him to incriminate himself. In prison he continues for some time to hold on to the idea that an essential humanity deep inside him cannot be broken. In the end, however, his is broken, reduced to a brainwashed shadow of his former self.
