About this course:

This course honors the 70th anniversary of the death of George Orwell (Eric Blair, 1903-1950), considered by many one of the foremost prose stylists of the English language and one of the world’s most provocative public intellectuals. We continue the chronological reading of major works by Orwell, including the final two listed here, his most famous and influential works: The Road to Wigan Pier (1937) Homage to Catalonia (1938), Coming Up for Air (1939), Animal Farm (1945), and Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949). Selected essays will be read from the internet. A class luncheon at a restaurant in Westwood will be held after the last day of class in order to allow students in interact and network in a non-classroom environment.
