George Orwell’s Diaries Published

This article in the NY Times discusses the         recent publication of Orwell’s diaries, which are not totally as profound as one may have expected. The writing takes place over two decades and reflects Orwell’s activities, such as gardening (although he was a serious gardener). There is also much writing on the topics he cared deeply about: language, poverty, politics, and class. He hardly speaks of his wife or son, but the reviewer claims a sense of the man emerges. Perhaps prior to a big election is a good time to think about Orwell’s contributions to political thought. EPL holdings of George Orwell‘s work.
