The “Politics and the English Language” is widely regarded as Orwell’s most important essay on style.Style, for Orwell, has never been simply a matter of aesthetics; it has always been inextricably linked to politics and truth.All questions are political questions, and politics itself is a mass of lies, prevarication, madness, hatred and schizophrenia.When the general atmosphere is bad, the tongue must sufferLanguage is a political issue, and poorly cared for, the use of language and clichés to make it easier for those in the deliberate power to use deceptive language to mask unpleasant political facts.Bad English, he thought, was a vehicle for the oppression of ideology, and it is no coincidence that “Politics and English Language” was written after the end of the Second World War.
