In the footsteps of George Orwell: Patrick McCarthy as Italian correspondent for Tribune, 1978-1980
Patrick McCarthy identified himself with George Orwell, from whom he took his notion of 'political language' and was loosely inspired by Orwell when he was Tribune correspondent in Italy during the late 1970s. McCarthy's dispatches from Italy contain four 'Orwellian' elements: a spare and vivid language, a uniformly critical treatment of the holders of power, sympathy for the marginal classes of society and support for the PCI (Partito dei Comunsti Italiani) as a party of resistance and opposition.
