Why Orwell Matters (2002)

Christopher Hitchens delivers a detailed diagnostic on a hero of literature, politics, and social consciousness. George Orwell’s life and writings are as valuable and prescient as ever, possessing a timeless quality. A portion of the work is difficult to follow unless your knowledge of British arts and movements is thorough. Yet that doesn’t detract from enjoying Orwell’s offerings and Hitchens’ analysis. Hitchens clearly exposes the facts and facets of the Orwellian legend and uncovers his future-thinking on social agendas and relationships, and in his faulty stances regarding homosexuality.

Orwell is a decent lion of England.
