Orwell the Blogger

The Orwell Prize, Britain’s pre-eminent prize for political writing, is publishing George Orwell’s diaries as a blog. From 9th August 2008, Orwell’s domestic and political diaries (from 9th August 1938 until October 1942) will be posted in real-time, exactly 70 years after the entries were written.

This wonderful initiative will be both a fascinating look at the life of one of the great writers of the 20th century as well as a window onto life in Britain during the lead-up to and early years of World War II.
