George Orwell is the pseudonym of Eric Arthur Blair. He was born in Bengal, India during 1903. When Blair was five years old, he went to a school in Henley. He did so well in school that he was recommended to the headmaster of one of the most exclusive preparatory schools. He went to good universities and became a scholar.
Eric joined the Indian Imperial Police in Burma; he published his first novel, “Burmese Days” in 1934 and essays such as “Hanging” and “Shooting an Elephant”. He then adopted his pen name “George Orwell” in 1933. George is the patron saint of England (and George V was monarch at the time), while the River Orwell in Suffolk was one of his most beloved English sites.
Orwell became poor for several years, he made “Down and Out in Paris and London” but he got ill during this period when he got work as a part-time assistant in a secondhand bookshop in Hampstead. He then published another novel, “Keep the Aspidistra Flying”.
The outbreak of the world war made Orwell write more books. He made Animal Farm during 1944. The Animal Farm was published and the story is sort of related to World War II and communism. In 1949 his best-known work, Nineteen Eighty-Four, was published. He wrote the novel during his stay on the island of Jura, off the coast of Scotland.
He married Eileen O’Shaughnessy during 1945 and adopted a son named Richard Horatio Blair. His wife died days after. Orwell married Sonia Brownell in 1949, shortly before his death. His life ended in 1950 due to tuberculosis.
