Politics and the English Language
George Orwell gives examples of bad writing in the essay “Politics and the English Language.” Choose two examples from the essay and discuss how you feel about the quality of writing. Do you think Orwell’s criticism is valid? What other comments would you make about his examples? Do you think people write in similar ways now, and if so, is that a problem? Also on a separate sheet of paper state how language usage rules can be applied effectively.
