Rhetorical Analysis Of Gandhi By George Orwell

191 Words1 Page
In his passage, Orwell uses tone to show his passion. Throughout lines 28-35 Orwell uses words such as, “impossible,” “defeated,” and “inevitable” to show how passionate he is about this topic. He uses these strong adjectives to show his strong views on the subject. He, again, is talking about how he views friendships as more valuable than religion. Orwell’s tone is also contemptuous of religion. When he says things such as, “Gandhi behaved in an inconsiderable way,” “He [Gandhi] was willing to let hiss wife or a child die,” and “if the decision had been solely his own” to show that there were several points he didn’t agree with Gandhi on. He is showing us that although it may have been religiously correct, to Orwell it was morally unacceptable.
