Some of George Orwell’s Most Startling Quotes with Artwork

The popularity of George Orwell, one of the twentieth-century’s most revered writers, has shown no sign of waning in the new millennium. Orwell’s exceptional body of work includes classic political fiction (1984 and Animal Farm), hugely influential non-fiction books (Down and Out in Paris and London, The Road to Wigan Pier, Homage to Catalonia), essays, literary criticism and polemical journalism. A number of his lesser-known novels – Burmese Days, Coming Up for Air, Keep the Aspidistra Flying – remain eminently readable. Little wonder, then, that Orwell is one of the most quoted writers. And, yes, you guessed it, our Facebook page has celebrated many of his most startling lines…
