George Orwell diaries online in blog format
August 3, 2008
George Orwell (Eric Arthur Blair) was one of the greatest writers and thinkers of the 20th century. If you don’t agree, then get the hell out. To my mind he’s in that select group of authors whose work can be profitably read and re-read. (Who else is on that list? For me, it includes A.J. Liebling, Aldous Huxley, Raymond Chandler, Dorothy Parker and Dashiell Hammett).
Now from the Orwell archive at University College in London comes material from his diaries in blog format. The NY Times did an article on it and you can connect directly to the diaries at orwelldiaries.wordpress.com.
