Post by JSlopezR11b on Fri Mar 03, 2017 12:05 am

Sapir-Whorf theory consists in the relation between culture, literature, language and how they all influence each other, this theory is clearly shown in Eric Arthur Blair's life ( George Orwell ). His childhood was full of good grades in school and texts he made from his bad experiences in school. He joined the Indian Imperial Police, there he saw things that dissapointed him from society, and that cultural aspect lead him to start criticizing society, he later became a critic and father of distopic literature, for making his critics he developed his own literary style, all his texts were distopic which means that he made strong and raw critics to society, his society perception is shown in ''1984'' which is probably his most famous book, a book in wich he expresses is culture and his language by literature means, and that's how Sapir-Whorf Theory is shown in his life.
