Comparsion Of 1984's Winston And Julia And Romeo And Juliet's Love.

863 words - 3 pages

One distinct difference between Winston and Julia, and Romeo and Juliet, is how they met and fell in love. Winston met Julia at his work and from the first time he saw her, he hated her. Winston even wanted to kill her once, because he believed she was a spy from the Thought Police. His anger quickly changed to love when she secretly handed him a note containing the message, "I love you." Upon receiving this note Winston became obsessed with Julia, constantly trying to find ways to meet with her and worrying that she would lose interest in him. After much careful planning, Winston and Julia were able to meet, yet only talked for less than a minute and in a very business like manner. Eventually they found ways to meet a couple times a week for a few hours each time.Romeo and Juliet, on the other hand, met at a party. Romeo was looking at the fish in an aquarium when he spotted Juliet on the other side. He was stunned by her amazing beauty and could not take his eyes of her. She eventually saw him through the aquarium and was very attracted to him. They both fell in love at first sight and were married soon after.One similarity both these couples share is that their love is forbidden. Winston was a married man, and even though he does not live with his wife, the Party would kill both Winston and Julia if they found out abut their love for one other. And even if Winston wasn't married, love and marriage is frowned upon by the Party, but is allowed in order for there to be children, which are used as spies for the Party. Romeo and Juliet's love is forbidden because their families are enemies.While both these couples' love is forbidden, the sincereness of their love differs. I find it hard to believe that Winston is really in love with Julia. He went from hating her to loving her just because she said she loved him. I think if you hated someone so much that you wanted to kill them, I don't think it wouldn't make a difference if they said they loved you or not. You might learn to like them over time, but I don't think you could just change your mind about someone that quick. Winston is a lonely, paranoid person, so he probably just wants someone to be with, and since he's never have a good friend, he probably doesn't know the difference between liking someone and loving someone. He's just happy he has a relationship with someone...
