A Post for Novelist Eric Arthur Blair AKA George Orwell B:6/25/1903 D:1/21/1950
I don't want this day to pass without paying homage to Eric Arthur Blair, "better known by his pen name George Orwell, was an English novelist, essayist, journalist and critic, whose work is marked by lucid prose, awareness of social injustice, opposition to totalitarianism, and outspoken support of democratic socialism."
Orwell died on this day in 1950! He was only forty six years old. As you may know, dear reader, I've referenced George Orwell in prior postings on Blogger, including one you may reference by clicking here. Btw, the screen shot seen in the first image atop this entry was given to me by a cyber friend so I don't know the source, but if I come upon it, I'll update this entry with the info.
