Why i write and other essays on literature


Eric Arthur Blair (1903–1950), more commonly known by his pen name George Orwell, was an English journalist, essayist, critic, and novelist most famous for his novel “Nineteen Eighty-Four” (1949) and allegorical novella “Animal Farm” (1945). His work is characterised by an opposition to totalitarianism and biting social commentary, and remains influential in popular culture today. Many of his neologisms have forever entered the English language, including “Thought Police”, “Big Brother”, “Room 101”, “doublethink”, “thoughtcrime”, and “Newspeak” to name but a few. This volume contains a fantastic collection of Orwell’s best essays on a variety of subjects including politics, literature, travel, poverty, writing, and more. Highly recommended for all lovers of the English language and not to be missed by collectors of Orwell’s seminal work. Contents include: “A Hanging”, “Shooting an Elephant”, “Down the Mine”, “North and South”, “Boys’ Weeklies and Frank Richards’s Reply”, “Charles Dickens”, “Inside the Whale”, “The Art of Donald McGill”, “The Lion and the Unicorn”, “Wells, Hitler and the World State”, etc.
