His writing is incredibly relevant in today's time despite being written over half a century before, and although I would say that 1984 especially does not represent today's society, it can explain how such a society can happen. Regardless of your feelings on current events, it is hard to argue that big changes are happening and it is easy to see why George Orwell remains an acclaimed author today, as his path into dystopia appears be frighteningly relevant to many.
This is a rather short author page as George Orwell was a rather interesting man, but you can read that on Wikipedia, and the brilliance of his writing is better experienced than described, and I cannot do that without typing out the book! Regardless, I hope it has perhaps persuaded you to check him out, or if you have already and like him, that I have done him justice!
Obviously his bibliography is rather long and contains a lot of essays, so I shall be posting his two most famous here for now and adding more as I discover them!
