    I enjoyed your sound and honest rage.

    Orwell had no bullshit, just common sense raised to a higher power. Been reading his essays recently. Politics and the English Language, of course, is implicit in your text.

    His essay on Dickens is some of the best criticism I've seen. There's an awareness of class, of psychology, there is really a deconstruction of Dickens's work, way ahead of its time, with zero pretension. Orwell just read Dickens thoroughly and carefully enough to see further into him than anyone else could.
