All Art Is Propaganda: Critical Essays - George Orwell

George Orwell’s powerful prose and critical mind are on display in All Art Is Propaganda: Critical Essays (Harcourt, $25), critiquing art, literature, film, and popular culture. Wonderful pieces discussing Dickens, Swift, Chaplin, Greene, and Gandhi combine a cogent treatise on their use of language and image, while simultaneously marrying the work to the underpinnings of political, religious, and philosophical thought guiding them.  Other pieces, such as “Good Bad Books” and “Confessions of a Book Reviewer,” show Orwell’s humorous side and voracious appetite for the written word in all forms, both high and low.
