Which statement BEST supports the assertion that the novel 1984 can be considered a bildungsroman?
Throughout the novel, we see the development of the Party's command over the citizens of Oceania.
As we read the novel, we see Winston grow as an individual. He moves from being meek and subservient to the Party to bold and rebellious, following his own desires.
The novel displays a lack of change in the characters of Parsons, Symes and O'Brien showing that growth in an individual is not acceptable by the Party.
Julia is a prime example of a character in a bildungsroman because we watch her develop throughout the novel.
None of the explanations provide plausible evidence that the novel could be loosely categorized as a bildungsroman.
