“Light on Orwell.” Article by unidentified writer. Listener, 4 February, 144–145. Summary of an “Omnibus” (BBC 1) program titled “The Road to the Left,” which consists of a portrait of George Orwell. In 413 words, Mailer analyzes Orwell’s narrative power in 1984 and praises his “profoundly prophetic” vision of a future filled with “dull, awful, obscene, miserable, picayune little wars…that would…kill the world slowly.”
