George Orwell (1903-1950) was a British author and journalist, who is recognized today as one of the most influential writers in the English-speaking world.
Orwell was a democratic socialist and much of his writing reflects his political beliefs. His most famous works are Animal Farm (1945) and Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949), both of which offer strong criticism against authoritarian governments and political propaganda. In addition to his major novels, Orwell also wrote a number of famous essays inspired by his time as a police officer in the British colony of Burma.
