The Orwell Prize for political writing
I have written before about George Orwell and some of his books on this blog. He aimed to write in a clear and powerful way and he had political ideas that he wanted to communicate in books such as 1984. That book was published in 1949 and Orwell died at the age of 46 in January 1950.
