George Orwell Why I Write First time when I heard George Orwell’s name was at school, year 12. And it wasn’t any literature lesson, it was a political science. My teacher said that if I want I can read Orwell’s book “1984” because it is about socialism and might be very useful for me. When I started to read it, I immediately understood that this book really differs from any other I have read before. Through the book I felt this feeling of being observed and overheard. I really started to worry for the main characters and tried to keep their secret as though by thinking about it I could ruin their lives. I enjoyed reading Orwell’s book, maybe because it was the first book so connected with policy, or maybe it was Orwell who could involve me in his work. In this essay Orwell tells his reader how he started to write and became a writer, he describes four motives for writing and thinks about writing in overall. George Orwell writes that he knew since the early childhood that he is going to be a writer. Personally, I believe him because I think that people who are talented discover their talents at a young age. Of course, there are some exceptions when one can understand his gift at age of about 50, but as we all know exceptions confirm rules. To my mind, George Orwell especially very interesting describes all those small details, pushes to a serious writing, as for example, description in his head of what is around him and etc. The writer sounds very honest with his reader, because of providing such a personal experience. Moreover, he answers why he gives us all this information about his steps in writing. Orwell thinks that we should firstly understand writers early development and only after that we can assess his motives for writing. I think that such position is very clear and wise, because it helps a lot to build a bridge between the writer and the reader.
