Writing, Ideology, and Politics: Orwell's "Politics and the English Language" and English Composition.
Freedman, Carl
College English, v43 n4 p327-40 Apr 1981
Analyzes George Orwell's 1946 essay, "Politics and the English Language," to develop an argument about compositional pedagogy and the nature of writing itself. Points out the dangers of promulgating only the "plain style" of language usage and the paradoxical advantages of combining classical rhetoric with radical politics. (RL)
