Orwell online

George Orwell‘s diaries are being published as a blog. See the article on BBC’s website. The Orwell Prize began publishing the diaries last Saturday, Aug. 9, 2008, and will continue to post each entry 70 years after it was written. Read the diaries here.

I like the idea of exploring history in this way. You may recall my earlier entry about a soldier’s WWI letters being published on the dates of the original letters. The added mystery there is finding out if he survives the war to return home safetly. You’ll find a link to those letters in my “other blogs & etc.” list to the right, titled WWI: Experiences of an English Soldier.
