Pen name of Eric Arthur Blair (1903-1950) British author. His books include the satirical fable Animal Farm 1945, which included such slogans as “All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others”, and the prophetic Nineteen Eighty-Four 1949, portraying the catastrophic excesses of state control over the individual. Other works include Down and Out in Paris and London 1933. A deep sense of social conscience and antipathy toward political dictatorship characterize his work.

Life as a dishwasher and tramp were related in Down and Out in Paris and London, and service for the Republican cause in the Spanish Civil War in Homage to Catalonia 1938.
