    An acclaimed author and political commentator, Orwell is very hard to pin down. He is a complex mass of confusions - an anti-establishment, pro-English, ex-Etonian, ex-policeman, and socialist, who was ardently anti-authoritarian. He was as anti-fascist as he was anti-communist, a former Spanish Civil War soldier who was anti-war but pro the Second World War. Towards the end of his life, George Orwell took refuge on a remote Inner Hebridean island to write what would become his most famous novel.
