Description

The aim of this study is to determine in what ways and to what extent Orwell's "political bias" influenced the technique and approach of certain key essays. It places Orwell's development in historical perspective and compares his commitment with that of his contemporaries. His major political essays are analyzed to provide the parameters for the major autobiographical, literary, cultural and sociological essays. The book concludes that Orwell succeeds in making "political writing into an art". His essays not only form the key to his thought, but also show how artful a propagandist he is, consciously "perverting words" and manipulating his technique to further his "cause".
