  1. Questions on Chapter 1 In the opening chapter of a novel, authors typically introduce major characters, settings and themes which will be explored more fully throughout the novel. Focus on the following sections of Chapter 1 when answering the following questions: • Row 1: Pages 1-5 (until “April 4th, 1984”) • Row 2: Pages 5-8 (until “The next moment…”) • Row 3: Pages 8-13 (until “Momentarily he caught…”) • Row 2: Pages 13-15 (until End of Chapter) Support all of your answers with contextualised quotations. Setting Provide evidence that shows the novel is set in: • a totalitarian state (one in which the government control everything people do); • a dystopia (a hellish society).

  2. Example Answer Structure • What evidence is there in the opening chapter to suggest that the novel is set in a totalitarian state? C – This can be seen in the opening chapter of the novel where various commodities are described: Q –“Victory Mansions … VICTORY GIN … VICTORY CIGARETTES” E – The repeated use of the word “Victory” to label these items suggests that this is the brand name of their manufacturer. The fact that this manufacturer appears to be responsible for resources as diverse as property, cigarettes and alcohol suggests that this is because they are all manufactured and distributed by the government. This suggests a totalitarian state, where the government is responsible for the distribution and manufacture of all commodities.

Character • What do we learn about the protagonist (main character) of the novel, Winston Smith? You may wish to consider his personality, circumstances, etc. • Re-read pages 7-8. The two characters described on these pages – O’Brien and the un-named girl – become important later in the novel. Provide evidence to illustrate Winston’s initial impression of both of them.
