About the Author

George Orwell, the pen name for Eric Arthur Blair, was born on June 25, 1903, in Motihari, Bihar, British India, and passed away on January 21, 1950. A journalist, essayist, novelist, and critic, he was a man of profound consciousness about social justice and the zealous clarity of his language. Orwell's literary career spanned a variety of genres, including journalism, essays, novels, and documentaries. He is widely lauded for his lucid prose, biting social criticism, opposition to totalitarianism, and outspoken support of democratic socialism. Orwell's 'The Complete Works' embrace his profound literary contributions and encapsulate a range of his insights on the sociopolitical conditions of his time. Perhaps the most iconic of his works are 'Animal Farm' (1945) and '1984' (1949), which have achieved the status of cultural touchstones. 'Animal Farm', a satirical fairy tale, exposes the corrupting influence of power through the fall of an idealistic revolution. '1984', a dystopian novel, explores the grim realities of a totalitarian state. His essays, like 'Shooting an Elephant', delve into the individual's conflicts with their conscience, and others are seminal explorations of politics, language, and literature. Orwell's legacy continues to influence and provoke thought on issues of freedom, truth, and the mechanisms of political control.
