Abstract: Amid rising Cold War tensions in mid 90's, many sorts of propaganda needed to emerge out of the struggle between Capitalism and Communism. As fear grew that communism would spread further, Anti-Communist writers and artists labeled propaganda as a tool to react against various forms of Fascism, Communism and totalitarianism. George Orwell, among them, wrote his novel Nineteen Eighty Four in which a propagandist language usage is noticeably shown. Although the analysis of propaganda is complex and needs a deep historical research, this thesis is set to examine the experiences which lead Orwell to adopt propaganda in his Nineteen Eighty Four and to analyze the language that he presents and its utility in propaganda process. Equally important, this thesis aims to show to what extent this language boosts Orwell's dedication in influencing the audience to adopt his anti-totalitarian point of view. Moreover, relating propaganda and language in a systematic reading of Orwell's work helps to make it appear as a substantial resource for theorizing about the notion of thought control in the novel. To derive a theoretical and a practical explanation out of this modest study, I rely on the Biographical criticism, Marxist criticism and an application of Linguistic Determinism theory. All in all, this dissertation is set to put the reader in the everyday context of propaganda and literature that combines a political value.
