George Orwell

Eric Arthur Blair was born on 25 June, 1903. Better known for his pen name George Orwell (chosen rather patriotically by combining St. George and the River Orwell), the author of Nineteen Eighty-Four and Animal Farm was an opinionated and outspoken democrat whose brilliantly written work remains contemporary and relevant today.

Although he died at the age of just 46 from tuberculosis, George Orwell lived a very eventful life - he was a teacher and lived in Burma working as a member of the British Imperial Police Force before fighting in the Spanish Civil War where he was wounded by a sniper and had to flee for his life. An avid follower of politics, he wanted to fight in World War II but was not allowed due to his injuries. He subsequently worked as a war correspondent during this time. George Orwell wrote six novels and three non-fiction books in his lifetime.
