Who Is George Orwell Imperialism

Decent Essays
Abdelrahman Fikry English Miss Marwa Hosny George Orwell 1984 It was in 1903 when Eric Arthur Blair, the British writer best known for his pseudonym George Orwell, was born in Motihari, India. He studied at Eton College in England on a scholarship, and served in the Imperial Police. He was destined in Burma, from 1922 to 1927, when he returned to England. Sick and struggling to make his way as a writer, he lived for several years in poverty, first in Paris and later in London. As a result of this experience he wrote a first book 'Sin blanca in Paris and London' (1933), where he recounts the sordid living conditions of homeless people. 'Days in Burma' (1934), a fierce attack on imperialism, is also, to a large extent, an autobiographical work.
