William Collins (mra-uk): “Orwell’s Preface Revisited”

George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four is my favourite work of fiction. I read it again every few years, and I’m always struck by the parallels with modern-day life – in recent years, by the parallels with feminism, of course. If Orwell were alive today, doubtless he’d be writing about ‘Big Sister’. It’s been many years since I last read Animal Farm, and I was formerly unaware of the Preface to the book, of which William Collins writes in an insightful new piece.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

  • Though I regard Animal Farm essential reading I was ignorant of this preface. It is truly remarkable , even without Mr Collin’s helpful annnotations it is so clear on the corrosion of Democracy through partiality. Orwell was remarkable in his dissection of our modern political culture.
