George Orwell was born "Eric Arthur Blair" ninety-nine years ago today.  His prescient and chilling works, "Animal Farm" and "1984" have shaped dystopian culture and literature from their inception.  "1984" in particular might be one of the most important works of the 20th century.


Who was George Orwell and why is he such an important figure?


How close are we to living out the nightmarish world without privacy and love inhabited by Winston Smith?


You might be startled and suprised as we look back at Orwell and ahead with the dark world that's emerging.
