1984: Chapter 8
Mr. Charrington is an old guy who sells scrap in a second hand shop in the proles district.
Mr. Charrington first provides himself as a kind, old store owner, with an interest in products of the past. Keep an eye on him! He alters throughout the story!!
When in Mr. Charrington’s store, he sees a picture of an old church. This image makes him remember a rhyme:
“Oranges and lemons, state the bells of St. Clement’s
You owe me 3 farthings, say the bells of St. Martin’s.”
Winston does not keep in mind ever actually hearing church bells.
