George Orwell was the pen name of Eric Arthur Blair, an English author who lived from 1903 to 1950. He is famous for his books Animal Farm, written in 1945, which was an attack on Stalin and the Soviet Union, and Nineteen Eighty Four, which introduces the concept of Big Brother. George Orwell could never have imagined the TV programme that his book would inspire in the early 21st century.

The book, which was written in 1949 was an attack on Cold War politics. Although the book is seen as a popular one and has been made into a film, Orwell was quite a serious political writer and his books contain deep messages.

His other works include Down and out in Paris and London, which he wrote in 1933 and numerous essays which were published throughout his career. Orwell was interested in politics but distrusted all political parties and was against political dictatorship.
