Week 9: George Orwell

4. Remember that you are always permitted a topic of your own: critical or creative.

For this weeks blog post, I am creating a mini digital kit containing resources about George Orwell.George.jpg

George Orwell, originally named Eric Arthur Blair, was born in India in June 1903 and died in England in January 1950. He was a novelist, essayist and critic with his most notable works published during 1945 (Animal Farm) and 1949 (Nineteen Eight-four).

At the age of one, Orwell moved from India to England where he later attended boarding school. Here he won scholarships that would help him to further his studies. Unable to pay to attend university, he joined the police force in India but five years later resigned and returned to England to become a writer.
