Noted as a novelist and critic as well as a political and cultural commentator, Orwell is among the most widely admired English-language political essayists of the 20th century. He is best known for two novels he wrote after World War II critical of totalitarianism in general, and Stalinism in particular: Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four. Both were written and published towards the end of his life.
