  • In such times as these, satire is no match for reality. We seem to have arrived at the grim future Orwell asks his readers to imagine: 'a boot stamping on a human face - forever.'

  • If 'a boot stamping on a human face - forever' is Orwell's most devastating image of power, then, despite their ultimate betrayal of it under torture, the great love his two main characters have for each other, a love they risk and lose their lives for, is Orwell's preeminent image of resistance to power. It is the most powerful image in the novel.
