Overview

George Orwell by Harold Bloom

Perhaps best known for his fable Animal Farm and his dystopian novel 1984, George Orwell was an influential journalist, critic, political activist, and cultural commentator. Within this volume, scholars comment on his political views, his perspective on totalitarianism, and his vision of other political dangers. Additionally, the experts in this text comment on Orwell's own forms of realism in his works and his unusual perspectives in his essays-sometimes pointing out where readers have misinterpreted his writing.
