  • About This Book


A clear-eyed, uncompromising collection of essays from the conscience of his generation and the author of 1984 (V. S. Pritchett). 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 works collected here include "Such, Such Were the Joys," "Shooting an Elephant," "Politics and the English Language," and "Why I Write." Perfect for those new to Orwell's work and a wonderful compilation for the experienced Orwell reader, A Collection of Essays is an invaluable anthology.
