It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen. Winston Smith, his chin nuzzled into his breast in an effort to escape the vile wind, slipped quickly through the glass doors of Victory Mansions, though not quickly enough to prevent a swirl of gritty dust from entering along with him.

The hallway smelt of boiled cabbage and old rag mats. At one end of it a coloured poster, too large for indoor display, had been tacked to the wall. It depicted simply an enormous face, more than a metre wide: the face of a man of about forty-five, with a heavy black moustache and ruggedly handsome features. Winston made for the stairs. It was no use 动名词主语trying the lift. Even at the best of times it was seldom working, and at present the electric current was cut off during daylight hours. It was part of the economy drive in preparation for Hate Week. The flat was seven flights up, and Winston, 定语从句who was thirty-nine and had a varicose ulcer above his right ankle, went slowly, 分词状语resting several times on the way. On each landing, opposite the lift-shaft, the poster with the enormous face gazed from the wall. It was one of those pictures which are so contrived 结果从句that the eyes follow you about 时间从句when you move. BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU, the caption beneath it ran.

Inside the flat a fruity voice was reading out a list of figures 定语从句which had something to do with the production of pig-iron. The voice came from an oblong metal plaque like a dulled mirror 定语从句which formed part of the surface of the right-hand wall. Winston turned a switch and the voice sank somewhat, 让步从句though the words were still distinguishable. The instrument (the telescreen, it was called) could be dimmed, but there was no way of shutting it off completely. He moved over to the window: a smallish, frail figure, the meagreness of his body merely emphasized by the blue overalls 定语从句which were the uniform of the party. His hair was very fair, his face naturally sanguine, his skin roughened by coarse soap and blunt razor blades and the cold of the winter 定语从句that had just ended.

Outside, even through the shut window-pane, the world looked cold. Down in the street little eddies of wind were whirling dust and torn paper into spirals, and 让步从句though the sun was shining and the sky a harsh blue, there seemed to be no colour in anything, except the posters 定语从句that were plastered everywhere. The blackmoustachio’d face gazed down from every commanding corner. There was one on the house-front immediately opposite. BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU, the caption said, 时间从句while the dark eyes looked deep into Winston’s own. Down at streetlevel another poster, 分词定语torn at one corner, flapped fitfully in the wind, 分词状语alternately covering and uncovering the single word INGSOC. In the far distance a helicopter skimmed down between the roofs, hovered for an instant like a bluebottle, and darted away again with a curving flight. It was the police patrol, 分词定语snooping into people’s windows. The patrols did not matter, however. Only the Thought Police mattered.

四月间,天气寒冷晴朗,钟敲了十三下。温斯顿史密斯为了要躲寒风,紧缩着脖子,很快地溜进了胜利大厦的玻璃门,不过动作不够迅速,没有能够防止一阵沙土跟着他刮进了门。

门厅里有一股熬白菜和旧地席的气味。门厅的一头,有一张彩色的招贴画钉在墙上,在室内悬挂略为嫌大了一些。

画的是一张很大的面孔,有一米多宽:这是一个大约四十五岁的男人的脸,留着浓密的黑胡子,面部线条粗犷英俊。温斯顿朝楼梯走去。用不着试电梯。即使最顺利的时候,电梯也是很少开的,现在又是白天停电。这是为了筹备举行仇恨周而实行节约。温斯顿的住所在七层楼上,他三十九岁,右脚脖子上患静脉曲张,因此爬得很慢,一路上休息了好几次。每上一层楼,正对着电梯门的墙上就有那幅画着很大脸庞的招贴画凝视着。这是属于这样的一类画,你不论走到哪里,画面中的眼光总是跟着你。下面的文字说明是:老大哥在看着你。

在他住所里面,有个圆润的嗓子在念一系列与生铁产量有关的数字。声音来自一块象毛玻璃一样的椭圆形金属板,这构成右边墙壁的一部分墙面。温斯顿按了一个开关,声音就轻了一些,不过说的话仍听得清楚。这个装置(叫做电幕)可以放低声音,可是没有办法完全关上。他走到窗边。他的身材瘦小纤弱,蓝色的工作服——那是党内的制服——更加突出了他身子的单薄。他的头发很淡,脸色天生红润,他的皮肤由于用粗肥皂和钝刀片,再加上刚刚过去的寒冬,显得有点粗糙。

外面,即使通过关上的玻璃窗,看上去也是寒冷的。在下面街心里,阵阵的小卷风把尘土和碎纸吹卷起来,虽然阳光灿烂,天空蔚蓝,可是除了到处贴着的招贴画以外,似乎什么东西都没有颜色。那张留着黑胡子的脸从每一个关键地方向下凝视。在对面那所房子的正面就有一幅,文字说朋是:老大哥在看着你。那双黑色的眼睛目不转睛地看着温斯顿的眼睛。在下面街上有另外一张招贴画,一角给撕破了,在风中不时地吹拍着,一会儿盖上,一会儿又露出唯一的一个词儿“英社”。在远处,一架直升飞机在屋预上面掠过,象一只蓝色的瓶子似的徘徊了一会,又绕个弯儿飞走。这是警察巡逻队,在伺察人们的窗户。不过巡逻队并不可怕,只有思想警察才可怕。
