A Collection of Essays (Harvest Book) Cover

 

Staff Pick

Sharing the same uncompromising language as his fiction, Orwell's essays explore everything from shooting an elephant to Henry Miller, and from boyhood schooling to the Spanish Civil War. Yet, despite the diversity of subjects, each essay looks to do the same thing: peel back the surface to look at what is, what isn't, and what should be. Go ahead and do yourself a favor—blow your mind with some Orwell.

Publisher Comments:

George Orwell's collected nonfiction, written in the clear-eyed and uncompromising style that earned him a critical following

 

One of the most thought-provoking and vivid essayists of the twentieth century, George Orwell fought the injustices of his time with singular vigor through pen and paper. In this selection of essays, he ranges from reflections on his boyhood schooling and the profession of writing to his views on the Spanish Civil War and British imperialism. The pieces collected here include the relatively unfamiliar and the more celebrated, making it an ideal compilation for both new and dedicated readers of Orwell's work.

Synopsis:
