The Orwell Diaries

The Orwell Prize, which sponsors a British prize for political writing, is publishing George Orwell’s diaries as a blog, with each entry appearing on the site exactly seventy years after it was written.  The entries will appear from August, 2008 through October 2012 and cover the pre-War and early World War II period.

Beyond reproducing the diaries, the site also uses tags on each entry to find related entries, includes background information and comments from users of the site.  You can view the diaries at
