"We shall meet in the place where there is no darkness"

My analysis

In this quote, What O'Brien was referring to Winston that will meet him eventually in the ministry of love. Of course, what he said was meant to be ambiguous in order to trick Winston into thinking that he was on his side, but in actual reality, it was really a trap. Overall, this line from the book reflects the tonal shift that happened in about the last third of the story where we realize that there is no rebellion and that the party cannot be stopped in which Winston grew to realize.
