13 Common Traits of Dystonian Fiction


“hardly anybody had enough to eat and where hundreds and thousands of poor people had no boots on their feet and not even a roof to sleep under--- But in among all this terrible poverty there were just a few great big beautiful houses that were lived in by rich men who had as many as thirty servants to look after them” (Orwell, 93)

“His voice, made metallic by the amplifiers, boomed forth an endless catalogue of atrocities, massacres, deportations, lootings, rapings, torture of prisoners, bombing of civilians, lying propaganda, unjust aggressions, broken treaties. It was almost impossible to listen to him without being first convinced and then maddened” (Orwell, 229)

"You thought I was a good Party member. Pure in word and deed. Banners, processions, slogans, games, community hikes- all that stuff..."It's this bloody thing that does it" she said, ripping off the scarlet sash of the Junior Anti-League and flinging it on a bough"(Orwell,121)

“Big Brother figured as the leader and guardian of the Revolution since it's very earliest days.” (Orwell, 36)

“The program of the Two Minutes Hate varied from day to day, but there was none in which Goldstein was not the principal figure. He was the primal traitor, the earliest defiler of the Party’s purity. All subsequent crime against the Party, treacheries, acts of sabotage, heresies, deviations, sprang directly out of his teachings. Somewhere or other he was still alive and hatching his conspiracies: perhaps somewhere beyond the sea, or under the protection of his foreign paymasters” (Orwell, 14)

“The only recognized purpose of marriage was to beget children for the service of the Party. Sexual intercourse was to be looked on as a slightly disgusting minor operation, like having an enema.” (Orwell, 84)

“We have beaten you, Winston. We have broken you up. You have seen what your body is like. Your mind is in the same state. I do not think there can be much pride left in you. You have been kicked and flogged and insulted, you have screamed with pain, you have rolled on the floor in your own blood and vomit.” (Orwell, 344)

“Even from the coin the eyes pursued you. On coins, on stamps, on the covers of books, on banners,on posters, and on the wrapping of a cigarette packet-everywhere. Always the eyes watching you and the voice enveloping you. Asleep or awake, working or eating, indoors or out of doors, in the bath or in bed-no escape. Nothing was your own except the few cubic centimeters inside your skull.” (Orwell, 27)

“On the contrary, war hysteria is continuous and universal in all countries, and such acts as raping, looting, the slaughter of children, the reduction of whole populations to slavery, and reprisals against prisoners which extend even to boiling and burying alive, are looked upon as normal” (Orwell, 153)

“In one combination or another, these three superates are permanently at war, and have been so for the past twenty-five years. War, however, is no longer the desperate annihilating struggle that it was in early decade of the twentieth century. It is warfare of limited aims between combinations who are unable to destroy one another, have no material cause for fighting, and are not divided by any genuine ideology difference. “ (Orwell, 185-186)

““It’s coffee,” he murmured, “real coffee.”

“It’s Inner Party coffee. There’s a whole kilo here,” she said.

“How did you manage to get hold get hold of all these things?”

“It’s all Inner Party stuff. There’s nothing those swine don’t have, nothing.” (Orwell, 117)

“Thus at one moment Winston's hatred was not turned against Goldstein at all, but, on the contrary, against Big Brother, the party, and the Thought Police; and at such moments his heart went out the lonely, derided heretic on the screen, sole guardian of truth and sanity in a world of lies.” (Orwell, 14)

“The telescreen received and transmitted simultaneously. Any sound that Winston made, above the level of a very low whisper, would be picked up by it; moreover, so long as he remained within the field of vision which the metal plaque commanded, he could be seen as well as heard.” (Orwell, 6)
