The Real George Orwell: Dreaming

After the Spanish Civil War, Eric and Eileen Blair travel to Morocco - so that he can rediscover "the heart of England". George Orwell - the pen name of Eric Blair - was a writer and political commentator who 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.
