Orwell on Freedom

By George Orwell

Published Nov 2018



Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four.  If that is granted, all else follows.


George Orwell is one of the world’s most famous writers and social commentators.  Through his writing he exposed the unjust sufferings of the poor and unemployed, warned against totalitarianism and defended free speech.  This selection from both his novels and non-fiction charts his prescient and clear-eyed thinking on freedom.
