Why I Read

I dreamt I dwelt in marble halls,
And woke to find it true;
I wasn't born for an age like this;
Was Smith? Was Jones? Were you?
(George Orwell, "Why I Write")
The fact that he was writing this in 1935 in rhyme should maybe have tipped him off he wasn't made for an age like this.

Anyway, found professional occasion to go back to this essay by Orwell this morning. Read all about it in a month or three.
