At five he began an Anglican parish school in Henley. Two years after attending, he was upgraded St. Cyprians- located in Eastbourne, Sussex. His time there was less than luxury but Eric earned scholarships to go into Eton or Wellington College. He only learned for a semester at the latter before transferring to the former. Although he was severely despised by his teachers he earned a King’s Scholar title for the years 1917-1921.
Unfortunately Eric could not pay for his funds. In turn he joined the Imperial Indian Police after moving to Burma. In 1928 he returned home after garnering a mindset of complete hatred towards imperialism. A few years later in 1933 he adopted the name he is most famous for now, George Orwell.
George wrote book reviews for the New English Weekly until retiring in three years after the move. In 1945 he published the ever popular Animal Farm; a response to his hatred of Stalinism. His wife, Eileen, died the same year during surgery. Four years later he published the disturbing and popular 1984; having written it on an island off the coast of Scotland.
Orwell died of tuberculosis in the autumn of 1949. Per his orders, he was buried in the All Saints’ Churchyard, Sutton Courtenay, Oxfordshire.
