The Orwell Society

George Orwell is known throughout the world for his masterpieces, Nineteen Eighty-Four and Animal Farm.  Any one of his other books or collections of essays, letters and journalism contain further pleasures and important writing, from a description of the perfect pub or how to make a cup of tea to the dangers of nationalism and how it differs from the patriotism deeply felt by Orwell.
