“Politics and the English Language” by George Orwell

“Politics and the English Language” is an excellent essay outlining how the English language is used today, along with being a guide to improving your own writing. While some of Orwell’s points are controversial, it’s important to think about them, evaluating where he may be right and formulating your own rebuttals.

Regardless, this essay is still relevant today (I would say especially relevant), and I encourage you to read it with a fine comb (though Orwell probably would have disagreed with my use of that idiom).
