George Orwell was the pen name of Eric Arthur Blair. Orwell's most famous work was the novel '1984'. He also wrote 'Animal Farm' and other novels as well as non-fiction.

Thank you for posting this picture. I was just reading Bill Bryson, Notes from a Small Island and he desribed his visit of EABs grave. I wondered whether someone in the Panoramio World took care of posting a picture of the gravestone of this eminent author. You did.Great.

Thanks for your visit Captain_Peter. It always seems to be a modest grave for such a famous author. Regards, purdey

Thanks for your visit picsonthemove. Orwell was an important author and I've read most of his work. He deserves to be remembered. Best wishes, purdey

Thank you for posting this picture of a much admired writer. I particularly like his essays and "Down and out in Paris and London"

Thanks for visiting GyurIca and Draken. George Orwell died tragically young. I often wonder what else he might have achieved if he'd lived longer. My personal favourite is 'Animal Farm'.

Perhaps we have seen with our friends this film in the Cinema two years ago.

Hi GyurIca. The only cinema film of 'Animal Farm' I can find was an animation made in 1954. I do remember seeing it years ago. Details are on IMDb.com. All the best, Brian

Hi Brian!

You have had lots of visitors since I was here.

Best wishes,

Hi GyurIca. Good to hear from you again! I have just realised this isn't on Google Earth, which I think it should be, as it is an important subject, so I've requested a review. All the best from the UK, Brian

One of my alltime favourite authors! Wikileaks is a great antidote for the 1984 scenario!

We await the outcome of the extradition proceedings of the wikileaks founder Julian Assange with some concern. Meantime, all of George Orwell's writings are on the web. Searching for 'George Orwell books online' turns up at least two sites where his work can be read online for free.
