George Orwell "Why I write"
I have chosen to write about George Orwell’s essay Why I write, because it gives the possibility to learn about the writer’s motivation for writing, from George Orwell’s point of view. The essay that includes ironic and curious statements shows the way - how he became the writer, how writing influence on him and on the way of his writing. He gave 4 reasons, why people write and become a writer. They are sheer egoism, aesthetic enthusiasm, historical impulse, and political purpose. He is detailing every reason so tersely and clearly, that I have no objection. Really, I had never thought about it, and I couldn’t imagine that reasons before I read George Orwell’s essay. However, when I read it I was so surprised that one person can describe 4 reasons in so easy and understandable way. Moreover, I couldn’t decided for whom writers write, for themselves to expound on the paper their emotions and feelings or for readers, although now I understand that it depends on writer.
In the essay George Orwell wrote that he knew that he would be a writer from the very early age. Writer were mixed up with the feeling of being isolated and undervalued, because of feelings that his father had never respect and support him and because of his loneliness and being unpopular throughout his schooldays. And compared what writer writes in essay I infer that when you are lonely and you can’t trust no one, talk to or hear you, it is good chance to take pen and paper and to start write, because mostly people are too busy or self-centered to notice what is going on around them.…
