Appendix II: Chronology

1943

On 24 November Orwell resigned from his post of Talks Producer in the Indian section of the BBC Eastern Service. Before the end of the month he had begun work as literary editor of Tribune, of which his friends, the Labour MPs Aneurin Bevan and G. R. Strauss, were co-directors and which had as its editor, Jon Kimche, whom Orwell had known since October 1934 when they had worked together at Booklovers' Corner in Hampstead. On 3 December Orwell's first "As I Please" appeared, the column he wrote in Tribune every week until 16 February 1945 and thereafter irregularly until April 1947. Aneurin Bevan allowed Orwell his head as literary editor, so that it was not uncommon for opinions, largely to do with Russia, then a war ally, or the nature of Socialism, in the literary section of the paper to controvert those in the front political section with the result, as Michael Foot has said, "How many readers [ Orwell] offended no one can calculate (the circulation manager made her rough-and-ready weekly estimate)." Orwell wrote, Tribune is not perfect, . . . but I do think it is the only existing weekly paper that makes a genuine effort to be both progressive and. humane -- that is, to combine a radical Socialist policy with a respect for freedom of speech and a civilised attitude towards literature and the arts."

On 9 December he began his series of book reviews in the Manchester Evening News which were normally to appear every other Thursday until 21 November 1946 under the heading "Life . . . People . . . and Books". Also in December Orwell's occasional book reviews for the Observer became a regular series, continuing fortnightly until 5 May 1946.


1944

In February Orwell finished Animal Farm which he had begun writing in November. During May he completed the manuscript of TheEnglish People
