GEORGE ORWELLAKA ERIC BLAIR1903 - 1950 He considered himself a “truth writer” What Orwell saw… Context of 1984 Nazi Germany EVER since I have been scrutinizing political events, I have taken a tremendous interest in propagandist activity. I saw that the Socialist-Marxist organizations mastered and applied this instrument with astounding skill. And I soon realized that the correct use of propaganda is a true art which has remained practically unknown to the bourgeois parties. Mein Kampfby Adolf HitlerVolume One - A Reckoning Truth? What does this remind you of? “How easy it was, thought Winston, if you did not look about you, to believe that the physical type set up by the Party as an ideal, - tall muscular youths and deep bosomed maidens, blond haired, vital, sunburnt, carefree –existed and even predominated” Orwell considered himself a “truth writer” GEORGE ORWELLAKA ERIC BLAIR1903 - 1950 1984(sometimes written Nineteen Eighty-Four) Why keep a diary?
