George Orwell 乔治·奥威尔

A British novelist and essayist between the two world wars

He is mush praised in the west partly because of his anti-communist point of view.

He was born in India, father, a so called empire-builder --serving the British government abroad.

He received good education in Britain and studied in the most famous school "Eden“.

He travelled widely. Marrakech is one of the places he travelled to. His travel made him take a hostile attitude toward imperialism. He showed deep sympathy for the poor and became a firm supporter of socialism.

He joined Spanish War. He was seriously wounded. The Spanish socialist forces divided into faction. The faction he belonged to was persecuted. So he became so pessimistic and depressed, which led him toward anti-communist attitude.

Animal Farm ---- a political fable *image-2*

Each animal represents a certain human character, meant to criticise Stalin's socialism. wwW.tiNGlikU.Com

In reading his works, several aspects draw our attention:

1. His works show sharp powers of observation and deep sympathy for suffering people.?

2. His works give a deep sense of conviction and urgency.

3. The use of English is clear, simple and direct, with no formality of embellishment. (addition/decoration) He said his ideal was to write prose like a window pane.
