I'm from almost all ethnic minorities at the same time and I'm pro-brexit
I saw a woman holding a poster quoting Orwell and comparing Bojo to a pig (as a vegan I'm ideologically against pejorative animal epithets). She had a strong French accent and gave a convinced speech that the UK will collapse after the no deal.
I read all of Orwell's works by the time I was 17 and I can tell you he is not what he is made out to be. His Alma Mater was Eton (ok by me) and he worked for MI5 for some time. He was not a great writer but more of a literary critic.
BTW which quote of Orwell? Was it in English?
There seems to be general agreement by Orwell’s fans, left and right, to skate gently over Orwell’s suspicions of Jews, homosexuals and blacks.
The last great English writer was D.H. Lawrence. They don't do him in universities anymore.
The Penguin second edition, published in 1961, contains a publisher's dedication, which reads: "For having published this book, Penguin Books were prosecuted under the Obscene Publications Act, 1959 at the Old Bailey in London from 20 October to 2 November 1960. This edition is therefore dedicated to the twelve jurors, three women and nine men, who returned a verdict of 'Not Guilty' and thus made D. H. Lawrence's last novel available for the first time to the public in the United Kingdom."
I think I read that book in 1966, or was it 1967?
