What did George Orwell study ?

I do not know where this would fit best so I hope this is okay .

I was referred to the appendix to 1984 to understand where Hub got the methods he followed to form the insane and ultra-complex gobbledygook in the absurd cult doctrine he unleashed upon this world.

I will need to give this a very serious study to give a better opinion .

BUT my initial reaction is - where in the world did Orwell get the insight needed to even write this ?

I have looked at several pieces online about his life and have gotten no clues what HE studied and would love any leads on where he got his info to better understand the ideas he wrote on .
