I wonder...

I won't argue for Winston as a fully sympathetic protagonist. But, to put together a history from the vague remembrances of very old men surely is not an easy task. Winston is no historian; indeed, in some sense he is an anti-historian. He demolishes the evidence from which histories might be made. I doubt whether, in Oceania's culture, he can reasonably be expected to have the devotion to put together "An Oral History: Before Big Brother".
