Politics and the English Language

I’ll be leading a seminar tomorrow (oops! It’s already today.) on writing for the Cato Institute research seminar. The text that will provide a kickoff for our discussion is George Orwell’s 1946 essay “Politics and the English Language.” Orwell’s insights are useful today, just as they were over fifty years ago. I wish that I could write as clearly and powerfully as Orwell does in these essays.

  1. Mr. Palmer,
    I am doing a bit of research on Orwell’s Politics and the English Language for a graduate assignment. I would be interested to read the commentary (if any) from the discussion you hosted on September of 2004.

    Thank you,
    George Goodno
