Ethical and Political Issues in George Orwell's Novels

PHIL 0991N S01 [CRN: 26469]

You may be familiar with Animal Farm and 1984, but did you know that George Orwell wrote four other novels? These other four novels are much less well known nowadays than they should be. This seminar will consider Orwell’s six novels in chronological order and will discuss, not only the usual points about the evils of totalitarianism, but also his wide-ranging insights about people, language, and politics (such as “If you kept the small rules, you could break the big ones”). In order to include students with varied backgrounds and interests, this seminar has no prerequisites.
