Product description

Synopsis

A collection of Orwell's less accessible essays. It includes his lament for the inferior quality of modern murders, his comments on the changing face of fictional crime, his essays on Dickens, Kipling and Salvador Dali and his eyewitness account of a hanging in Burma and a lazar-house in Paris.

About the Author

Eric Arthur Blair (1903-1950), better known by his pen-name, George Orwell, was born in India, where his father worked for the Civil Service. An author and journalist, Orwell was one of the most prominent and influential figures in twentieth-century literature. His unique political allegory Animal Farm was published in 1945, and it was this novel, together with the dystopia of Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949), which brought him world-wide fame. His novels and non-fiction include Burmese Days, Down and Out in Paris and London, The Road to Wigan Pier and Homage to Catalonia.
