Catch up with A.L. Kennedy’s 2017 Orwell Lecture, ‘Orwell with women’ on YouTube, courtesy of UCL Arts and Humanities:

Deeply associated with political thinking – and our increasingly rapid descent into newspeak and unhistory – Orwell was also a meticulously close observer of women and placed them at the centre of his imaginative life.

A famously self-contained man, often part of all-male groups, Orwell nevertheless had an enduring and vital relationship with the female. The talk will look at the different threads of this relationship.
