At one end of it a coloured poster, too large for indoor display, had been tacked to the wall. It depicted simply an enor - mous face, more than a metre wide: the face of a man of about forty-five, with a heavy black moustache and rugged - ly handsome features. Winston made for the stairs. It was no use trying the lift. Even at the best of times it was sel - dom working, and at present the electric current was cut off during daylight hours. It was part of the economy drive in preparation for Hate Week.

The flat was seven flights up, and Winston, who was thirty-nine and had a varicose ulcer above his right ankle, went slowly, resting several times on the way. On each landing, opposite the lift-shaft, the poster with the enormous face gazed from the wall. It was one of those pictures which are so contrived that the eyes follow you about when you move.

Inside the flat a fruity voice was reading out a list of fig - 4 ures which had something to do with the production of pig-iron. The voice came from an oblong metal plaque like a dulled mirror which formed part of the surface of the right-hand wall. Winston turned a switch and the voice sank somewhat, though the words were still distinguish - able. The instrument the telescreen, it was called could be dimmed, but there was no way of shutting it off complete - ly.

He moved over to the window: a smallish, frail figure, the meagreness of his body merely emphasized by the blue overalls which were the uniform of the party. His hair was very fair, his face naturally sanguine, his skin roughened by coarse soap and blunt razor blades and the cold of the win - ter that had just ended.

Outside, even through the shut window-pane, the world looked cold. Down in the street little eddies of wind were whirling dust and torn paper into spirals, and though the sun was shining and the sky a harsh blue, there seemed to be no colour in anything, except the posters that were plastered everywhere. The blackmoustachiod face gazed down from every commanding corner.

There was one on the house-front immediately opposite. Down at street level an - other poster, torn at one corner, flapped fitfully in the wind, alternately covering and uncovering the single word IN - GSOC. In the far distance a helicopter skimmed down between the roofs, hovered for an instant like a bluebottle, and darted away again with a curving flight. It was the po - lice patrol, snooping into peoples windows.

Behind Winstons back the voice from the telescreen was still babbling away about pig-iron and the overfulfilment of the Ninth Three-Year Plan.

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 vi - sion which the metal plaque commanded, he could be seen as well as heard. There was of course no way of knowing whether you were being watched at any given moment. How often, or on what system, the Thought Police plugged in on any individual wire was guesswork.

It was even conceivable that they watched everybody all the time. But at any rate they could plug in your wire whenever they wanted to.

You had to livedid live, from habit that became instinctin the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized. Winston kept his back turned to the telescreen.

It was safer, though, as he well knew, even a back can be revealing. A kilometre away the Ministry of Truth, his place of work, towered vast and white above the grimy landscape.

See, that’s what the app is perfect for.

This, he thought with a sort of vague distastethis was London, chief city of Airstrip One, itself the third most populous of the provinces of Oceania. He tried to squeeze out some childhood memory that should tell him whether London had always been quite like this.

Were there always these vis - tas of rotting nineteenth-century houses, their sides shored up with baulks of timber, their windows patched with card - board and their roofs with corrugated iron, their crazy garden walls sagging in all directions?

And the bombed sites where the plaster dust swirled in the air and the wil - low-herb straggled over the heaps of rubble; and the places where the bombs had cleared a larger patch and there had sprung up sordid colonies of wooden dwellings like chick - en-houses? But it was no use, he could not remember: For an account of its structure and etymology see Appendix.

It was an enormous pyramidal structure of glittering white con - crete, soaring up, terrace after terrace, metres into the air.

From where Winston stood it was just possible to read, picked out on its white face in elegant lettering, the three slogans of the Party: Scattered about London there were just three other buildings of similar appearance and size. So completely did they dwarf the surrounding architec - ture that from the roof of Victory Mansions you could see. Flag for inappropriate content.
