Orwell, as I'm sure you know--you being an expert on this as well as, apparently, every other subject--was gravely injured in Spain in '37. It obviously affected his faculties.

I honestly know next to nothing about Orwell's life, so I checked what you said on Wikipedia, to benefit from your knowledge and learn something.

The year he published the Kipling essay was the year he began writing Animal Farm.  It is my opinion it is the book that defines the last century.

Oh well.  I'm sure there are important reasons to contradict whatever I might say.  But how am I to profit from what you say, if disagreement with me becomes automatic and mechanical.
