A Cool Person in the AKIC Universe: George Orwell

I think David Warren best summed up Orwell. He was a poet. Orwell's politics, despite his clear visions of the scene of his time, were nothing special. But he added to the English language.

Hitchens, of all people, praised Orwell's ascetism. Orwell had no need for a car.
