George Orwell’s diaries are now available in blog form. A prolific writer, Orwell wrote about everything, including everyday life, writing, and, of course, politics. The blog posts mirror his diary entries from seventy years ago. On Sept. 7, his political entries from 1938 begin on the blog. We all know what terrible events were happening in Europe at that time.
The blog address is www.orwelldiaries.wordpress.com The blog is sponsored by the Orwell Prize for writing, in association with the Orwell Trust, Political Quarterly and Media Standard Trust in Great Britain. An article in the New York Times about this blog inspired me to write about Orwell on my own blog. Here’s the link to my Orwell Article, which will lead you to more links, including the New York Times link……….Cathy
