George Orwell (1903-50), novelist, sociologica! writer and the author, in Animal Farm, of a satire which shows every sign of being a permanent addition to literature, was one of the most dynamic critics of the age in which he lived his all too brief life. He affected the thoughts of his contemporaries, and in this sympathetic assessment Mr. Hopkinson shows how and why he did so.

Mr. Hopkinson, formerly a scholar of Pembroke College, Oxford, made an outstanding name for himself by his editing of Picture Post during its first decade of life. He has also published novels and short stories, including a distinguished collection, The Transitory Venus (1948); his most recent publications are Down the Long Slide ( 1949) and Love's Apprentice (1953).
