But whatever his intentions, the nickname is a howler, and (like Julia’s last name, Vernon) it got cut: Winston started to his feet. The shock of the sight had driven all caution out of him. For the first time in many years he forgot the presence of the telescreen. ” he cried. “They got me a long time ago,” said O’Brien with a mild, almost regretful irony. He stepped aside.

But without the addition of love—in all its aspects—the ending would be less complete and chilling. Winston as “the last man” isn’t nearly so alone before he forms the ties with Julia and recovers buried memories—his history, the truth about his own life.

In a grim perversion of Hegelian synthesis, love becomes the proof of his subjection to Big Brother, loyalty becomes a constant shifting of belief, and sanity becomes untenable.
