  1. I recently read this book for the first time. Your essay is very thorough and well documented. My general impression upon reading the book was – here’s a social scientist and journalist doing his utmost to grab the snobbish upperclass and wannabe middle class and give them a swift kick. Orwell’s super power, WORDS! and he wielded them mightily! Also recommend Christopher Hitchens lecture “Why Orwell Matters” on Youtube.
