It’s Orwell Week (#1 of 3)
George Orwell was a pen name for Eric Arthur Blair (1903–1950), an English novelist, essayist, journalist, and critic best known for the novella Animal Farm (1945), and Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949).
Orwell understood policing. In 1922 Blair took a position as a police officer in Burma. A colleague there recalled that Blair was fast to learn the language and that before he left Burma, “was able to speak fluently with Burmese priests in ‘very high-flown Burmese.'”
