About the Author

George Orwell, the pseudonym of Eric Arthur Blair, was born in Bengal, India, in 1903. He was educated at Eton, became a policeman in Burma but suffered and studied poverty. His great works, Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four, are a product of his hatred of totalitarianism. His legacy of writing and political thought is much admired today.

Richard Bradford is Research Professor at Ulster University and Visiting Professor at Avignon University. He has published thirty-five books including literary biographies of Ernest Hemingway, John Milton and most recently the widely-acclaimed Orwell: A Man of Our Time (2020).

What People are Saying About This

Anthony Burgess

1984 is a fantasy about disaffected journalists, novelists, poets, professors, and schoolmasters imposing an idealistic philosophy on the countries of the West — amalgamated into the superpower Oceania — which is no more than a notion of the nature of reality forged in an Oxford or Cambridge common room.

V. S. Pritchett

The most solid, the most brilliant thing George Orwell has done.

Alfred Kazin

1984 has been an extraordinary experience for me. It is...overwhelming in its keenness and prophetic power. I hardly know which to praise more -- Orwell's insight into the fate of man and its totalitarianism or his compassion for him.
