Orwell was much more than the author of two of the twentieth century’s most important novels – 1984 and Animal Farm – he was also a prolific essayist and cultural critic who managed to describe the English character with abiding accuracy. What will emerge, during this course, is a fuller and clearer picture of a politically engaged and controversial writer who reinvented himself several times, and who believed sincerely in the innate decency of ordinary men and women, and in their ability to determine their own future.
