The essay that has become required reading for intro-level writing classes, as well as an obligatory citation when discussing politics and rhetoric
Politics and the English Language (1946) is an essay by George Orwell that criticised the “ugly and inaccurate” written English of his time and examines the connection between political orthodoxies and the debasement of language.
Although Orwell’s essay has been criticised for being too idealistic, in many ways Politics and the English Language remains as relevant now as it was in 1946 when it was first published. It has since become required reading for intro-level writing classes, as well as an obligatory citation when discussing politics and rhetoric.
George Orwell is the pseudonym of Eric Arthur Blair, born in India to a Scottish family in 1903 and died in London in 1950.
