George Orwell
amazon.co.uk
George Orwell was one of the greatest writers England produced in the last century. He left an enduring mark on our language and culture, with concepts such as 'Big Brother' and 'Room 101.' His reputation rests not only on his political shrewdness and his sharp satires (Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four) but also on his marvellously clear style and superb essays, which rank with the best ever written. Gordon Bowker's new biography, written to coincide with Orwell's centenary, includes fascinating new material which brings his life into unfamiliar focus. He writes revealingly about Orwell's family background; the lasting influence of Eton on his work and character; his superstitious streak and youthful flirtation with black magic; and his chaotic and reckless sex life, which included at least one homoerotic relationship. It highlights the strange circumstances of his first marriage and provides remarkable new evidence of his experiences in Spain and their nightmarish consequences. It also offers a fresh look at his peculiar deathbed marriage to a woman fifteen years his junior. All this has enabled Bowker to give Orwell's life a brilliantly fresh and distinctive interpretation.  read more

George Orwell's fishing holiday
amazon.co.uk
In the summer of 1942, George Orwell spent a fortnight (from Sunday 28th June to Saturday 11th July) staying on a farm in the Worcestershire village of Callow End, where he was having a solitary fishing holiday. (Callow End is close to the confluence of the River Severn and the River Teme). Orwell loved fishing and he kept his favourite fishing rod by his death-bed, hoping that if he recovered he could go fishing in Switzerland. Orwell was, at this time, a writer in the midst of realising what he really had to write, and - as this story goes - he finds plenty of inspiration for 'Animal Farm' whilst fishing in the River Severn, wandering around in the countryside, drinking in the Blue Bell and the Red Lion, bothering the locals and generally behaving untoward. When not ruminating over the trials and tribulations of the war (and being steadfast in his hope for the future of England), Orwell is waxing poetic about lost love and cursing the departure of Ping the Elastic Man from the pages of The Beano. And Orwell enjoys nothing more than yapping away with the animals of the farm on which he is staying you see, he has always been good with animals... although, whilst out rambling over the Old Hills one night, he finds himself getting into a spot of bother with an angry wild boar. This is a story of all things Orwellian: bickering Socialists and self-sufficiency, those nasty Fascists and a nice cup of tea; good bad books and good bad beer, magic lanterns of dreamy nostalgia and forewarnings of a frightful dystopia ('Nineteen Eighty-Four' is about to take over...)George Orwell had just turned 39 (the age of Winston Smith in 'Nineteen Eighty-Four') when this fishing holiday at Callow End took place. Orwell had very little time away from the BBC whilst working for the Eastern Service (and during this time he used to sit wearily through meetings in Room 101, a BBC conference room) but he was able to take a fortnight of leave for this fishing holiday. On the day of his arrival for his fishing holiday, it was three years ago to the day since his father died - perhaps, of course, this was just a coincidence. Shortly after Orwell's visit to Callow End, his mother dies. Orwell is soon to adopt his son Richard with his wife, Eileen - Eileen is also to die shortly, just before the publication of 'Animal Farm'. (And of Eileen, it is worth pointing out that this story takes place after the death of her brother, Laurence, who died in 1940 - the death of her beloved brother deeply affected her). Shortly after the death of Eileen, Orwell's older sister Marjorie is to die. So here is everybody's favourite George, fishing for a fortnight in the midst of chaos; losing himself in remembrances of the past and worries of the future, whilst hoping to find some reprieve in the present moment. Over the fourteen days Orwell spent at the farm in Callow End, he apparently caught eighteen dace (though one may have been a roach), two eels and one perch; on five days he caught nothing. Edward Cooper was born and brought up in the town of Malvern, Worcestershire, and he knows the local area very well (and the Blue Bell and the Red Lion both come with his discerning recommendation). And Cooper was born in the year of - it almost goes without saying nineteen eighty-four.  read more
