One of the most attention-getting in many opinions is Winston's Chapter 3 dream of his mother. This is a dream that awakens in him the recognition of the past reality of the emotion of love. It is this dream that leads him to start musing about the state of war that his world is always in. This dream of love is also followed by the dream of the inviting and beautiful girl in the meadow. These two dreams, connected as they are, might be said to be the beginning of Winston's end thus great attention-getters.
