Todo está controlado por los angeles sombría y omnipresente figura del Gran Hermano, el jefe que todo lo ve, todo lo escucha y todo lo dispone. Winston Smith, el protagonista, aparece inicialmente como símbolo de los angeles rebelión contra este poder monstruoso, pero conforme el relato avanza está cada vez más cazado por este engranaje, omnipotente y merciless.
