Book II chapter vii
Winston and Julia are talking about what will happen when they’re caught.
“If you mean confessing,” she said, “we shall do that, right enough. Everybody always confesses. You can’t help it. They torture you.”
I was struck by how different Winston and Julia’s relationship is from the one in our last book. Can you imagine The Stranger’s Mersault telling Marie, “only feelings matter”? Mersault? When Marie brought up the topic of marriage, Mersault could take it or leave it
Ahhh, a character who emotes. It’s nice to be back in the land of feelings.
Even if they are Ingsoc suppressed feelings.
