George Orwell

Eric Arthur Blair, better known as George Orwell, was born on June 25, 1903 in Motahari, Bengal to Richard Walmesley Blair and Ida Mabel Limouzin. In 1904, Limouzin took her two children to England for the education she felt they deserved. Richard Blair stayed in India to finish out the seven years left until his retirement. Orwell read many books as a child, but one that left a significant impression on him throughout his life was “Gulliver?s Travels.” In 1911, Orwell entered St. Cyprians school. His parents worked out a deal with the headmaster for him to attend the school at a cheaper tuition, and in return, when Orwell received scholarships to attend larger colleges his achievement could be advertised to attract higher paying students. In 1917, Orwell won a scholarship to Wellington College, after three months, he received a scholarship to Eaton University. He attended Eaton University until 1921 after he did poorly in his classes. It was while attending these shools, that Orwell first began to realize the difference of his social background to that of the wealthy students he attended school with. Orwell left for
