Winston works in the Records Department in the Ministry of Truth and he loves his work, it is almost the only thing that brings him joy in his mundane life. He has the power in his work to alter history, to create people and destroy them, and he finds this power frightening and exciting, which is why he revels in his work.

The literature that is produced for the Proles, is produced in the Ministry of Truth (Winston's place of work). The proletariat literature had its own department within the Ministry of Truth that generated all forms of entertainment. It was different in that it was considered "rubbishy"or the cheapest, lowest forms of entertainment for the lowest kind of humans. The Proles were also the only ones allowed to look at pornography which was also produced by the Party and its production section was called Pornosec.

"Here were produced rubbishy newspapers containing almost nothing except sport, crime, and astrology, sensational five-cent novelettes, films oozing sex, and sentimental songs which were composed entirely by mechanical means . . ."
