“1984”: A study on repressed sexuality and individual rebellion


Md. Mominur Rahman, Shaila Zaman

This paper examines the relationship between civil sexuality and political despotism in the name of individual freedom. The idea of absolute power over citizens’ wishes to have sex in 1984 plays a pivotal role in making the protagonist Winston revolt against the oppressive party stance to the citizens of Oceania. This paper will also explore the idea of centralized power and the failure of the individual rebellion. Finally, it will elaborate the role that sexuality plays in the 21st century to liberate people from the oppressive nature of politically incorrect “taboo culture” and social and religious orthodoxy that a state plays in the name of balancing cultural chastity.
