  • Orwell's Essay Shooting An Elephant
    801 words
    Throughout Orwell's literary career, he avidly stood against totalitarian and imperialistic forms of government. His two most famous works (1984 and Animal Farm) both exemplify this point, but at the same time weaken it.

  • Actual Events In Orwell's Life
    393 words
    Like many of George Orwell's other essays, "Shooting an Elephant" reads like a story, and so keep in mind that this is an essay-that is, this is based on actual events in Orwell's life. In "Notes on Dali", Orwell writes that " [a] uto biography is only to be trusted when it reveals something disgraceful. A man who gives a good account of himself is probably lying, since any life when viewed from the inside is simply a series of defeats". In his essay "Shooting an Elephant", Orwell definitely "re...
  • Marrakech By Orwell Quotes And Analysis
    1,289 words
    Thesis: For the thesis, I would say that this essay shows how insignificant certain people and cultures are to the rest of the world. For example how someone can juts be buried with no name, and be erased from the world's memory in a short amount of time. Another example would be how the Arab man was envious of a bird's meal. This essay demonstrates how poorly man-kind is treated. Thesis Statement: " When you walk through a town like this -- two hundred thousand inhabitants, of whom at least twe...
  • Politics And The English Language
    1,622 words
    The language of politics is one that is universal to all languages. In 1948, George Orwell published an essay entitled Politics and the English Language, which discussed just that. In paragraph 21 of this essay, he claims, "political language... is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidarity to pure wind". This is absolutely right, it was in Orwell's time, and it still holds true today, in a time of mass media, corporate influence, and col...
