a portrait of George Orwell.

Orwell: A Man of Our Time

by Richard Bradford Author

George Orwell’s work is as relevant today as it was in his own lifetime, in the age of Brexit, Trump, and populism, possibly even more so. “Doublethink” in Nineteen Eighty-Four is the forerunner to “Fake News,” the creation of the EU and more significantly the post-Imperial xenophobia that caused Britain to leave it and the struggle with his own antisemitism could serve as a lesson to today’s Labour Party, and while the Soviet Union is gone, China has taken its place as a totalitarian superpower. His work remains both prescient and significant; this is a vivid portrait of the man behind the writings that places his work at the center of the current political landscape.
