The year has come and gone but George Orwell s prophetic nightmarish vision in of the world we were becoming is timelier than ever i i is still the great modern classic of negative utopia a startlingly original and haunting novel that creates an imaginary world that is completely convincing from the first sentence to the last four words No one can deny the novel s hold on the imaginations of whole generations or the power of its admonitions a power that seems to grow not lessen with the passage of time, In Orwell went to Spain to report on the Civil War and instead joined the fight against the Fascists This famous account describes the war and Orwell s experiences Introduction by Lionel Trilling, George Bowling the hero of this comic novel is a middle aged insurance salesman who lives in an average English suburban row house with a wife and two children One day after winning some money from a bet he goes back to the village where he grew up to fish for carp in a pool he remembers from thirty years before The pool alas is gone the village has changed beyond recognition and the principal event of his holiday is an accidental bombing by the RAF br, Shooting an Elephant is Orwell s searing and painfully honest account of his experience as a police officer in imperial Burma killing an escaped elephant in front of a crowd solely to avoid looking a fool The other masterly essays in this collection include classics such as My Country Right or Left How the Poor Die and Such Such were the Joys his memoir of the horrors of public school as well as discussions of Shakespeare sleeping rough boys weeklies and a spirited defence of English cooking Opinionated uncompromising provocative and hugely entertaining all show Orwell s unique ability to get to the heart of any subject
