About the Author
Eric Arthur Blair (1903-1950), better known by his pen-name, George Orwell, was born in India, where his father worked for the Civil Service. An author and journalist, Orwell was one of the most prominent and influential figures in twentieth-century literature. His unique political allegory Animal Farm was published in 1945, and it was this novel, together with the dystopia of Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949), which brought him world-wide fame. His novels and non-fiction include Burmese Days, Down and Out in Paris and London, The Road to Wigan Pier and Homage to Catalonia.

Today I don't think they'd let him publish this - not politically correct!
We can all deplore academic mushy writing, but Orwell described it perfectly 80 years ago. This is a hilarious take-down of the silly, pretentious, unnecessarily vague style of writing that clouds clear-thinking and clear expression.
It is not unenjoyable. Try it for yourself
