1984


George Orwell, seud nimo de Eric Arthur Blair (1903-1950), escritor brit nico pol ticamente comprometido que ofreci un brillante y apasionado retrato de su vida y su poca. Orwell naci en Motihari, India, y estudi en el Eton College de Inglaterra gracias a una beca. Prest sus servicios en la Polic a Imperial India destinado en Birmania, de 1922 a 1927, fecha en la que regres a Inglaterra. Enfermo y luchando por abrirse camino como escritor, vivi durante varios a os en la pobreza, primero en Par's y m's tarde en Londres. Como resultado de esta experiencia escribi un primer libro Sin blanca en Par's y Londres (1933), donde relata las s rdidas condiciones de vida de las gentes sin hogar. En 1936 Orwell luch en el ej rcito republicano durante la Guerra Civil espa ola (1936-1939). El autor describe su experiencia b lica en Homenaje a Catalu a (1938), uno de los relatos m's conmovedores escritos sobre esta guerra y en el que se hace responsable al Partido Comunista Espa ol (PCE) y a la Uni n Sovi tica de la destrucci n del anarquismo espa ol que supuso el triunfo de la Falange. Su condena de la sociedad totalitaria queda brillantemente plasmada en una ingeniosa f bula de car cter aleg rico, Rebeli n en la granja (1945), basada en la traici n de Stalin a la Revoluci n Rusa, as como en la novela sat rica 1984 (1949). Esta ltima ofrece una descripci n aterradora de la vida bajo la vigilancia constante del Gran Hermano. Cabe citar entre otros escritos, la novela Que vuele la aspidistra (1936) y Disparando al elefante y otros ensayos (1950), ambas consideradas modelos de prosa descriptiva, y As fueron las alegr as (1953), un recuerdo de sus dif ciles a os de estudiante. En 1968 se publicaron en cuatro vol menes sus Ensayos Completos: Periodismo y Cartas. Orwell muri de tuberculosis en enero de 1950.
