Orwell's Diaries as Blog

The diaries of George Orwell ( born Eric Arthur Blair (25 June 1903 – 21 January 1950) are to be published as a blog:

From 9th August 2008, you will be able to gather your own impression of Orwell’s face from reading his most strongly individual piece of writing: his diaries. The Orwell Prize is delighted to announce that, to mark the 70th anniversary of the diaries, each diary entry will be published on this blog exactly seventy years after it was written, allowing you to follow Orwell’s recuperation in Morocco [recovered from a life-threatening lung haemorrhage], his return to the UK, and his opinions on the descent of Europe into war in real time. The diaries end in 1942, three years into the conflict.
