Christopher Hitchens. Why Orwell Matters. London. 2002. PR6029.R8 Z664 2002

In the long tradition of British dissent, Orwell believed that a good writer’s freedom from orthodoxy necessarily made him a heretic. He summed up the writer’s duty by quoting words from P. P. Bliss’s 1873 Revivalist hymn:

                                                   Dare to be a Daniel,

                                                   Dare to stand alone;

                                                   Dare to have a purpose firm,

                                                   Dare to make it known.  (“The Prevention of Literature,” 1946)
