George Orwell was born in British India in June 25, 1903. He grew up in England. The themes of British writer George Orwell's most famous works, Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949) and Animal Farm (1945) reflect his dedication to human liberty. These tales continue to exert a profound influence on writers and social thinkers, remaining among the most analyzed and discussed books ever written.
Orwell's uncompromising opposition to totalitarianism was born of his experiences during the Depression and the Spanish Civil War, in which he joined the fight against Fascism. In addition to his many full-length works, Orwell produced numerous essays and articles.
