Orwell’s Diaries

The Orwell Prize has started a blog, in which they’ll post the diary entries of George Orwell, every day, what he wrote on that day. They’ll also post helpful notes by Peter Davison, who edited the Complete Works.

Today is the first one, from August 9th, 1938. On that day, Orwell picked up a snake by the tail & it scared his dog. I also learned a Shakespeare fact: that ancient peoples though the tongue of the snake gave poison, not the fangs.

I’m going to enjoy this so much.
