'The general uncertainty as to what is really happening makes it easier to cling to lunatic beliefs.'
These essays, reviews and articles illuminate the life and work of one of the most individual writers of this century - a man who created a unique literary manner from the process of thinking aloud and who elevated political writing to an art. This wonderful collection includes some of Orwell's longer, major essays and a selection of shorter pieces that include 'A Hanging' and 'Shooting an Elephant'.
