George Orwell (1903-1950) was known throughout the world for his novels Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four, as well as for his essays, books of reportage, and other novels. Born Eric Arthur Blair on June 25, 1903, into the "lower-upper middle class" in Motihari, Bengal, India, where his father was a civil servant for the British government, Blair moved to England the following year with his mother and sister. He received an elite education, culminating at Eton, but did not go on to university. His early school years were not happy; he later wrote about his experiences in a bitter essay called Such, Such Were the Joys.
