Synopsis

The articles collected in George Orwell's Essays illuminate the life and work of one of the most individual writers of this century-a man who elevated political writing to an art. This outstanding collection brings together Orwell's longer, major essays and a fine selection of shorter pieces that includes "My Country Right or Left," "Decline of the English Murder," "Shooting an Elephant," and "A Hanging." With great originality and wit, Orwell unfolds his views on subjects ranging from a revaluation of Charles Dickens to the nature of Socialism, from a comic yet profound discussion of naughty seaside postcards to a spirited defense of English cooking. Displaying an almost unrivalled mastery of English plain prose, Orwell's essays created a unique literary manner from the process of thinking aloud and continue to challenge, move, and entertain.
