(53) In 1936, Orwell moved to the industrial part of England so he could investigate the conditions of working-class life and the effects of unemployment. In 1937, he went to Spain to serve in their militia, fighting against the forces meaning to establish a fascist government. This is where he first began to distrust the Soviet Union. From 1943 to 1946 he was the editor of the newspaper, the "Tribune". He also served as a wartime correspondent from Paris in 1945. He wrote and published Animal Farm during this time.
was an abandoned farmhouse with outbuildings near the northern end of the island, situated at the end of a five-mile (8 km), heavily rutted track from Ardlussa, where the owners lived. Conditions at the farmhouse were primitive but the natural history and the challenge of improving the place appealed to Orwell. His sister Avril accompanied him there and young novelist made up the party. In July Susan Watson arrived with Orwell's son Richard. Tensions developed and Potts departed after one of his manuscripts was used to light the fire. Orwell meanwhile set to work on . Later Susan Watson's boyfriend arrived. A fan of Orwell since school days, he found the reality very different, with Orwell hostile and disagreeable probably because of Holbrook's membership of the Communist Party. Susan Watson could no longer stand being with Avril and she and her boyfriend left.
Some animal farm essay questions that are worth the while:
Benjamin, on the other hand, is the farm donkey. He's cantankerous andill-tempered, cynical, and the oldest animal on the farm. He refuses totake a position on the revolution and is entirely unaffected by thepatriotic fervor the other animals. He simply continues on working at thesame pace he always has, staying out of politics, not commenting even whenthe pigs start changing the rules. Benjamin is the disaffected cynic,certain that "life would go on as it always had gone on —that is, badly."
