Happy George Orwell Day

Today is George Orwell Day - a tribute to the great man launched on the 63rd anniversary of his death. For more info, there's quite a good article on the Grauniad's site here. There's also a lot of Orwell-related stuff - pardon the technical term - going on on Radio 4.

You can also read Orwell's seminal essay Politics and the English Language, which I remember having to do for A level English, here. (Most writers on film seem not to have read this, academics in particular!)
