George Orwell Now!

by Richard Lance Keeble | 31 August 2015
Synopsis
George Orwell remains an iconic figure today - even though he died in 1950. His dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four depicts a Big Brother society in which the state intrudes into the most intimate details of people's lives - and, not surprisingly, it became a constant reference point after Edward Snowden's revelations. The word «Orwellian» is constantly in the media - used either as a pejorative adjective to evoke totalitarian terror or as a complimentary adjective to mean «displaying outspoken intellectual honesty». Interest in Orwell's life and writings - globally - continues unabated. Beginning with a preface by Richard Blair, Orwell's son, George Orwell Now! brings together thirteen chapters by leading international scholars in four thematic sections: Peter Marks on Orwell and the history of surveillance studies; Florian Zollmann on Nineteen Eighty-Four in 2014; Henk Vynckier on Orwell's collecting project; and Adam Stock on 'Big Brother's Literary Offspring' Paul Anderson «In Defence of Bernard Crick»; Luke Seaber on the «London Section of Down and Out in Paris and London» ; John Newsinger on «Orwell's Socialism»; and Philip Bounds on «Orwell and the Anti-Austerity Left in Britain» Marina Remy on the «Writing of Otherness in Burmese Days and Keep the Aspidistra Flying »; Sreya Mallika Datta and Utsa Mukherjee on «Reassessing Ambivalence in Orwell's Burma»; and Shu-chu Wei on Orwell's Animal Farm alongside Chen Jo-his's Mayor Yin Tim Crook on «Orwell and the Radio Imagination»; and editor Richard Lance Keeble on «Orwell and the War Reporter's Imagination» Peter Stansky, in an afterword, argues that Orwell is now more relevant than ever before.
