"To see what is in front of one's nose needs a constant struggle."– George Orwell

About George Orwell
George Orwell was the pen name of English writer Eric Blair, best known for the satirical Animal Farm and the dystopian 1984. He was born in 1903 in India and raised in England. After school, he joined the Burmese police. He left after five years, disillusioned with colonialism, and lived in poverty while he taught himself to write. Following two rejections for Down and Out in Paris and London, he asked a friend to destroy the manuscript. She gave it to an agent instead, resulting in publication. He died in 1950.
