Course Description

Famously an old Etonian who policed the Empire in Burma before going ‘down and out’ to experience poverty, Eric Arthur Blair took his pen-name George Orwell from the Suffolk river. A sensitive observer of the human condition and environment, his fiction became a gauge by which dictatorships are measured. This course surveys Orwell’s enduring and influential work, examining whether ‘Orwellian’ means concerned with a dystopian future or rather with the heritage and traditions of the past.
