In the Wind Like Singing


Over on Kill Your Darlings, Angela Meyer writes a lovely reflective essay on her time spent in Barnhill, where George Orwell stayed while he wrote 1984. She explores Orwell through the mess that might be 1984, the perfection of his essays, and the importance of a book he renounced, A Clergyman’s Daughter. Much like she did at times, in that room where Orwell wrote, the essay lights a candle for the author to remember him by.
