George Orwell's Life
George Orwell, born on June 25 1903 in Motihari, India, was a British novelist, some of his notable works being Nineteen Eighty Four, and of course, Animal Farm. George Orwell was born and spent the first few of his childhood years in India. When he was four years old, his family moved to England and settled at henley. There, he received a scholarship to Wellington and Eton. After leaving school, Orwell joined the Indian Imperial police from 1922 to 1927 (Biography in context, 2013). However, due to his poverty Orwell decided to stay in England after a home visit and decided to resign from the Indian Imperial police (Britannica, 2013). Ever since his resignation of the Indian Imperial police, Orwell decided to focus on his career as a writer, which was something he wanted to do since he was young (Biography in context, 2013).
The first few years of Orwell’s life as a novelist was spent among the outcasts of Europe and the unemployed miners in the North of England (Britannica, 2013). These experiences were recorded in his earlier novels and as a result, Orwell’s reputation at the time was mainly based on his works addressing poverty. His image as a writer took a turn when he published “The Road to Wigan Pier” in 19377. This marked his birth as a political writer, an impression that lasted for the rest of his life, eventually leading to the publishing of Animal Farm (Biography in context, 2013).
