I have a hard time seeing all of these as symbols.  Specifically, I do not see how Winston can be a symbol when he is clearly the protagonist of the story.However, I do think that each of these four things represents something.  Winston and his diary represent rebellion and Big Brother and Room 101 represent the power of the society against which they are rebelling.Winston embodies dissatisfaction with the society.  He is opposed to the way the Party tries to control everything about people’s lives.  His diary is the first way in which he rebels.  It is also a symbol of the past — a time when people made quality goods and had real thoughts.Big Brother represents a paternalistic and authoritarian government and, more specifically, its ability to keep watch over its people.  Room 101 represents the violence that the Party can use against anyone who disagrees with it.
