Becoming a great writer
It is a curious and daring lifestyle. If there' s one writer who's had the most influence on me, I think it should be George Orwell. I introduced Orwell in the infamous novel'1984' and I recall that I read it because I thought I'should'.
And Orwell is an important person here in England, and indeed all over the whole wide globe, and I felt bad that I hadn't even heard a single thing from him, namely English and so on. No other writer has had such a strong influence on me. I' ve come to see George Orwell and I thought I would be sharing some of the teachings I learned from his work.
orge Orwell ( "Eric Arthur Blair" was his true name) was borne in British India in 1903. An Orwell described his education as "the lower top tier". As he had noticed from an early age how impoverished his familiy was compared to the other kids at Eton College, he was.
So Orwell would be in Burma for five and a half years. In 1934 he described his adventures in his novel "Burmese Days". And Orwell learned to fluently read and write Myanmar and even tattoos his ankles like the natives, a practice designed to fend off snake. The' SHOTPING ON ELEFANT' (1936) is a brief essays about his story of how he killed an elephant that raged through the city where Orwell was located.
Orwell was touched by a lot of people from Burma topple the bull. So Orwell hesitated, but he felt that he could not show the locals any slackness. In 1927 Orwell went back to England. It' s at this point that Orwell began to recognize the issue of impoverishment and empathize with ordinary people.
Down and Out in London and Paris" is a depiction of his decline into despair, his exhausting life with long lessons and no resting period. It was about the routines and slavery of the Parisian arms and the excentric figures found in the Paris sloops. Orwell became ill in 1929 and was taken to a Paris clinic.
Here he composed "How the Poor Die", a graphical documentary of life and illness in a disadvantaged orphanage. It' horrible, but genuine and genuine; you see Orwell writes from a painful and sad state. In December 1929 Orwell went back to England. Up until 1932 Orwell used to spend his days reviewing and working as a coacher.
Orwell undertook many subcover trips as a hitchhiker to explore England's world. In fact, he was intentionally imprisoned and spend two nights in a prison-house. The next two years he taught at Hawthorns High School and later at Frays College. Orwell relinquished his job as a tutor after a case of lung inflammation and began to spend much of his spare minute on convalescence.
Here Orwell writes "Keep the Aspidistra Flying", a story about a man trying to escape the social pressure of currency and state. In the spring of 1936 Orwell lived in Wigan, Manchester, Sheffield and Barnsley - the UK's 15th largest city. That was during the Great Depression and he found that many were in a state of desperate need.
Around this period Orwell began to consolidate his opinions on Civicism. Orwell was supervised by the Special Branch because of his work. With the outbreak of the Civil War in the south of 1936, Orwell left for Barcelona to join the Republic armed force. As McNair cited Orwell, "I've come to struggle against fascism".
and sent to the Aragon Front. The Aragonese front was relatively calm most of the times. Mid-1937 Orwell was gunned through the neck by a sharpshooter, the slug missed the main atheria around a mustache.
This was the period when domestic conflict was intensifying on the Republic side and the current state of affairs became erratic. That made Orwell a refugee and he was compelled to leave Catalonia. He described his experience in the 1938 publication "Hommage an Katalonien". Orwell' s well being began to collapse and he spend the remainder of his English lifetime reviewing for literature and completing various fiction and essay work.
In Marrakech he briefly visited and published an article on the life of the French-Moroccan population. "Georges Orwell, Marrakech." Most of his stay was confined to a bedside clinic and he was found to be suffering from TB. In this state of poor physical condition he wrote'1984' and finished the novel in December 1948.
Orwell' s physicians said they would listen to the typist click all the time. So Orwell was decided to end the novel. George Orwell deceased on 21 January 1950 (46 years old) at the University College Hospital in London. It' a great disgrace that George Orwell should have been killed at the peak of his literary work.
I' d like to believe that he had much more to say to the rest of the planet. But his young death has kept him young in the mind of so many people, his work no less enlightening and forward-looking than at the moment of his inscription. A lot of great historic personalities passed away at a young age.
Curious and borne by a daring and idealistic universe. So I think this is, like all authors and performers should be - without be?-?without anxiety or doubts. He was not fearful of exploring the deepest parts of the globe, plunging into extreme destitution and fighting Nazism.
Here, immersed in sludge and in the foxholes, all great tales are made. It is important that an actor should not be scared to throw himself into the coldness, respond to the big issues and face the grim reality.
