Introducing the book of George Orwell by B.T. Oaksley
The Book of Life of George Orwell by B.T. Oxley is a good choice for those who are interested in George Orwell, a well-known, well-known and capable English writer, but who do not have enough time to read his works or do not get bored of studying them.

Contrary to what its name implies, this book does not focus only on the private life of this popular author, although it does study the biographies of the authors of such works as “Animal Castle”, “1984”, “Breathing Fresh Air”, “Money … and Nothing Else” and … It is certainly readable and not without grace;
Rather, with an overview of his works, he acquaints the audience with the ups and downs of Orwell’s thoughts in each of them, and when and in what geography a novel was written, what factors contributed to its writing, and under what inspiration the characters He created it and examined the historical events that took place at the same time as his short life and had a direct impact on his thoughts and works.

A look at the works of George Orwell shows that despite the fact that each of them takes place at a different time, all or most of them have a single subject and, of course, a single conclusion. The logical course of his ideas, which is crystallized in his works, is from a poor portrayal of the situation of the lower class or, as he puts it, the British working class, and very harsh criticisms of the socio-economic system of that country in the late 1920s and early 1930s. Approval comes with superficial criticism of the system in the late 1930s and 1940s.

Perhaps the author’s claim that Orwell himself was his main hero can be confirmed, because he did not have a fate other than that of his heroes, that is, not to bow down but to confirm the same situation that he claimed to be fighting.
One of his main goals was to sow the seeds of despair and hopelessness towards the destiny of human beings, and in the first place towards the destiny of any struggle for more points. He portrays the image of British colonialism with the victory of the struggles of the Indian people and the independence and expulsion of the British from that country, as if after this event the hegemonic nature of Britain changed to a liberal nature and Britain is the cradle of freedom, because “this country “It is the only place where armed men do not roam the streets and no one is afraid of the secret police.”

Orwell is said to have been non-religious, but it is clear from the course of his work that his thoughts, after much conflict with obvious contradictions, turned to morality and the surrender to destiny, which is one of the fundamental tenets of Christianity.
Christianity, unlike revolutionary and revolutionary Islam, has largely voted in favor of stabilizing the situation around it and has played a compromising role. (This claim should not be taken to mean the denial of the anti-imperialist struggles of Christianity and the Christian clergy, especially in the late 1970s and beyond, and especially in Latin and Central America.)

In his collection of works, after much struggle over belief in the other world and religious beliefs about life, Orwell writes:
“The main problem is, while accepting death as the end, how can religious beliefs (about life) be restored to their original condition?”
“If death ends everything, then it will be much more difficult to believe that man can be righteous even in the face of defeat,” he says elsewhere.

But he did not use these religious beliefs to fight, because he had said goodbye to the struggle or what he called the struggle.
Explain why Orwell, who believed in the struggle against colonialism and, in his own words, against all manifestations of human oppression of man, goes to the threshold of kissing the island’s politicians at the end of his life. What needs to be explained is that he no longer cared where the struggles of the Lancashire and Yorkshire workers would end up or what harm the new British colonialism would do to the people of the occupied countries. George Orwell’s Life is a critique of Orwell’s work.

Selected Quotes by George Orwell:
Fools always show themselves to be something other than what they are.
– Following the conventional beliefs is unconscious.
– It is believed that it is indestructible.
– The failure of human natural law.
– In this game, victory is not possible, only some defeats are better than others. This!
Loneliness is a valuable thing. Everyone needs to be alone from time to time.

“The Life of George Orwell” by b. ت. Is Oxley. The author of this book is a collection of writings, critiques and analyzes on the works of George Orwell (1903-1503), a British author. In an excerpt from the book, we read: Orwell’s own novels (excluding the Animal Castle, five of them) believe in a very different atmosphere. This atmosphere is very close to that of another author he praised, George Gissing.

According to Orwell, Gissing is the author of a history of savagery, pollution, and defeat. His novels were a protest against a form of self-harm known as English respect, analyzing the way in which the two factors of respect, woman and money, were met by society to avenge itself on the courage and wisdom it sought to pursue. Was used.
In an article entitled “The Interests of the Clergy” in which he discusses the autobiography of the Spanish surrealist painter Salvador Dill, Orwell wrote that a man who paints a good picture of himself is probably lying “because every life seen from the inside is just a series of failures.” . » Apparently, such a defeat came to the Italian militia, whom Orwell met in the Barcelona sanatoriums during the Spanish Civil War and who became a symbol of the elite of the oppressive Italian working class.
