George Orwell

Born Eric Arthur Blair, George Orwell (1903-1950) occupies a special place in 20th century literature for his dystopian, satirical contributions to literature and language. When searching for a pseudonym, he settled on George Orwell as it was a "good English name". He is best remembered for his six novels, but also wrote nonfiction narrative essays, literary reviews and journalistic articles.

Orwell identified strongly with democratic socialism. Throughout his writing, themes surrounding social injustice, government and religion recur, and many of his works can be read on both a literal level and a metaphorical one.Orwell's writing was so pervasive that phrases of his creation are still used, such as the Thought Police, Doublethink, Big Brother and more. To this day, any overtly controlling regime or power is often referred to as Orwellian.
