ABOUT THE AUTHOR

George Orwell, born Eric Arthur Blair, was a prominent English writer known for his lucid prose, social critique, and unwavering opposition to totalitarianism, while advocating for democratic socialism. His diverse body of work encompassed literary criticism, poetry, fiction, and polemical journalism. Orwell's most notable works include the allegorical novella "Animal Farm" (1945) and the dystopian novel "Nineteen Eighty-Four" (1949), both of which offered powerful critiques of authoritarianism and totalitarianism. His non-fiction writings, such as "The Road to Wigan Pier" (1937) and "Homage to Catalonia" (1938), showcased his keen observations of working-class life in England and his experiences as a soldier in the Spanish Civil War. Born in India and educated in England, Orwell served as an Imperial policeman in Burma before embarking on his writing career. He adopted the pen name "George Orwell" from his beloved River Orwell in Suffolk. Throughout his life, he worked as a journalist, teacher, and bookseller while producing influential essays on politics, literature, language, and culture. Orwell's contributions to language include iconic terms like "Big Brother," "Thought Police," "Room 101," "Newspeak," "memory hole," "doublethink," and "thoughtcrime." His impact on popular and political culture endures, with the term "Orwellian" being used to describe oppressive social practices. In recognition of his literary significance, The Times ranked George Orwell second among "The 50 greatest British writers since 1945" in 2008.
