Julia

1984-GOKTRN

Identify the literary device MOST strongly used in the quote below as well as its significance.

She Julia thought it over. They can't do that, she said finally. It's the one thing they can't do. They can make you say anything-anything-but they can't make you believe it. They can't get inside of you.

A

This is a flashback. Julia is reflecting on her past experiences with the Party and their failed attempts at manipulating her mind.

B

This is irony. Julia is telling Winston that there is no way anyone can make her believe something, yet Winston convinced her that there really was a Big Brother when she didn't believe.

C

This is foreshadowing. Julia, although voicing her current opinion about the Party's incapability to make her believe something she doesn't, will eventually cooperate with the Party and indulge in their beliefs.

D

This is a paradoxical statement because Julia is saying that one can be forced into saying anything yet not believe what they are saying. However, many times an individual voices their opinion on something, they believe what they are saying.

E

None of the choices best represent the significance and literary element for the quote.
