As a critic, George Orwell cast a wide net. Equally at home discussing Charles Dickens and Charlie Chaplin, he moved back and forth across the porous borders between essay and journalism, high art and low. A frequent commentator on literature, language, film, and drama throughout his career, Orwell turned increasingly to the critical essay in the 1940s, when his most important experiences were behind him and some of his most incisive writing lay ahead. All Art Is Propaganda follows Orwell as he demonstrates in piece after piece how intent analysis of a work or body of work gives rise to trenchant aesthetic and philosophical commentary. With masterpieces such as qPolitics and the English Languageq and qRudyard Kiplingq and gems such as qGood Bad Books, q here is an unrivaled education in, as George Packer puts it, qhow to be interesting, line after line.qWith masterpieces such as aquot;Politics and the English Languageaquot; and aquot;Rudyard Kiplingaquot; and gems such as aquot;Good Bad Books, aquot; here is an unrivaled education in, as George Packer puts it, aquot;how to be interesting, line after line.aquot;
