Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

'Politics and the English Language' is widely considered Orwell's most important essay on style. Style, for Orwell, was never simply a question of aesthetics; it was always inextricably linked to politics and to truth.'All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.When the general atmosphere is bad, language must suffer.'Language is a political issue, and slovenly use of language and cliches make it easier for those in power to deliberately use misleading language to hide unpleasant political facts. Bad English, he believed, was a vehicle for oppressive ideology, and it is no accident that 'Politics and the English Language' was written after the close of World War II.

Biographie de l'auteur

Eric Arthur Blair (1903-1950), better known by his pen-name, George Orwell, was born in India, where his father worked for the Civil Service. An author and journalist, Orwell was one of the most prominent and influential figures in twentieth-century literature. His unique political allegory Animal Farm was published in 1945, and it was this novel, together with the dystopia of Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949), which brought him world-wide fame. All his novels and non-fiction, including Burmese Days (1934), Down and Out in Paris and London (1933), The Road to Wigan Pier (1937) and Homage to Catalonia (1938) are published in Penguin Modern Classics.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 This edition is kindling 26 juin 2017

I certainly expected better from Penguin. This 4 1/2" x 7" pamphlet has the quality of something printed on an office laser printer.. The utter lack of sensitivity to the typeset reflects the contemporary lack of understanding of the purpose of typeset...readability. The computer allows unskilled office help to cram aany number of words onto a page. At that rate, they might have taken four more pages tto crush War and Peace onto the same pages..

I'll go online and download a free PDF, which cannot be any less able to be read by mature eyes. This is thoughtless and does not reflect well on the writing.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Should be read by all public servants 29 mars 2013

The fundamental point of this short essay is that how you use language is a political matter. It reminds us of the need to be constantly on guard against falling into forms of standard English that limits us to the current dominant political ideology. Although the examples Orwell uses are dated, they do illustrate his point.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Go George! Maybe written in 1940 but sounds like today! 14 février 2017

May have been written in 1940 - but sounds like 2017 as far as the English Language is concerned.
Today I don't think they'd let him publish this - not politically correct!
