The Road to Wigan Pier

Editura: Mariner Books

Anul aparitiei: 1972

Before he authored the dystopian 1984 and the allegorical Animal Farm, George Orwell was a journalist, reporting on England's working class -- an investigation that led him to examine democratic socialism. In the 1930s, the Left Book Club, a socialist group in England, sent George Orwell to investigate the poverty and mass unemployment in the industrial north of England. Once there, he went beyond the requests of the book club, to investigate the employed as well. Orwell chose to live as the coal miners did -- sleeping in foul lodgings, subsisting on a meager diet, struggling to feed a family on a dismal wage, and going down into the hellish, backbreaking mines. What Orwell saw clarified his feelings about socialism, and in The Road to Wigan Pier, he pointedly tells why socialism, the only remedy to the shocking conditions he had witnessed, repelled "so many normal decent people." "Orwell's code was a simple one, based on truth and 'deceny'; he was important -- and original -- because he insisted on applying that code to his own Socialist comrades as well as to the class enemy...It is the best sociological reporting I know."--The New Yorker

George Orwell Boxed Set: 1984, Animal Farm

Editura: BLACKSTONE AUDIO BOOKS

Anul aparitiei: 2007

This boxed set includes two of George Orwell's most famous and beloved novels, 1984 and Animal Farm. 1984 George Orwell depicts a gray, totalitarian world dominated by Big Brother and its vast network of agents, including the Thought Police, a world in which news is manufactured according to the authorities' will and people live tepid lives by rote. Winston Smith, the hero with no heroic qualities, longs only for truth and decency. But living in a social system in which privacy does not exist and where those with unorthodox ideas are brainwashed or put to death, he knows there is no hope for him. He knows even as he continues to pursue his forbidden love affair that eventually he will come to destruction. The year 1984 has come and gone, yet George Orwell's nightmare vision in 1949 of the world we were becoming is still the great modern classic of negative Utopia. It is a propehtic and haunting tale that exposes the worst crimes imaginable: the destruction of freedom and truth. Animal Farm George Orwell's classic satire of the Russian Revolution has become an intimate part of our contemporary culture, with its treatment of democratic, fascist, and socialist ideals through an animal ...

Rebelion en la Granja

Editura: LD BOOKS INC

Anul aparitiei: 2002

Quizá la empresa mas difícil de acometer sea la de hacernos conscientes. El mundo en que vivimos parece decididamente abocado a distraernos, a impedirle a los individuos un momento de lucidez para mirar su entorno, observar cómo funciona la sociedad. Los verdaderos poderes del visionario de Orwell radican en su capacidad para mirar no sólo los objetos, sino, principalmente, la sombra que proyectan. Rebelión en la granja es una fábula en la que la adjudicación de las aflicciones y necesidades humanas a los animales protagonista venció la resistencia racional de los primeros lectores a mirar lo que no querían mirar. Lo que nos cuenta Orwell ya estaba en los periódicos: la historia sobre los crímenes estalinistas en la Unión Soviética.

Anul aparitiei: 1990

With extraordinary relevance and renewed popularity, George Orwell's 1984 takes on new life in this hardcover edition. "Orwell saw, to his credit, that the act of falsifying reality is only secondarily a way of changing perceptions. It is, above all, a way of asserting power."--The New Yorker In 1984, London is a grim city in the totalitarian state of Oceania where Big Brother is always watching you and the Thought Police can practically read your mind. Winston Smith is a man in grave danger for the simple reason that his memory still functions. Drawn into a forbidden love affair, Winston finds the courage to join a secret revolutionary organization called The Brotherhood, dedicated to the destruction of the Party. Together with his beloved Julia, he hazards his life in a deadly match against the powers that be. Lionel Trilling said of Orwell's masterpiece "1984 is a profound, terrifying, and wholly fascinating book. It is a fantasy of the political future, and like any such fantasy, serves its author as a magnifying device for an examination of the present." Though the year 1984 now exists in the past, Orwell's novel remains an urgent call for the individual willing to speak ...

A National Review Top Ten Best Nonfiction Books of the Century "One of Orwell's very best books and perhaps the best book that exists on the Spanish Civil War."--The New Yorker In 1936, originally intending merely to report on the Spanish Civil War as a journalist, George Orwell found himself embroiled as a participant--as a member of the Workers' Party of Marxist Unity. Fighting against the Fascists, he described in painfully vivid and occasionally comic detail life in the trenches--with a "democratic army" composed of men with no ranks, no titles, and often no weapons--and his near fatal wounding. As the politics became tangled, Orwell was pulled into a heartbreaking conflict between his own personal ideals and the complicated realities of political power struggles. Considered one of the finest works by a man V. S. Pritchett called "the wintry conscience of a generation," Homage to Catalonia is both Orwell's memoir of his experiences at the front and his tribute to those who died in what he called a fight for common decency. This edition features a new foreword by Adam Hochschild placing the war in greater context and discussing the evolution of Orwell's views on the Spanish ...

Keep the Aspidistra Flying

Editura: UNIV OF TORONTO PR

Anul aparitiei: 2011

Orwell's darkly comic novel centres around the life of Gordon Comstock, onetime advertising copywriter turned bookshop employee and struggling poet. Gordon's disdain for money and artistic compromise preclude his earning enough of a living to escape constant public embarrassment. On top of this, it gives him terrible trouble holding on to his girlfriend. Unwilling to dilute his stubborn stance on capitalistic pursuits, he constantly obsesses "money, money, money, all is money". Gordon's problems mount while his only published volume, "Mice", gathers dust on a shelf, and his attempts at a new collection stagnate. Written during Orwell's time living in Notting Hill and set in London during "the year of blight, 1934", the novel is a fine example of Orwell's wit, and a masterpiece of fiction. It also hints towards themes about power and relationships that would colour his later works Nineteen Eighty-Four and Animal Farm . Reader Richard E. Grant is one Britain's best-loved actors, and best remembered for his role in Withnail & I . In 1997. Grant also appeared as Gordon Comstock in a film version of Orwell's novel.

Orwell: A Celebration

Editura: HAL LEONARD PUB CO

Anul aparitiei: 2010

Dominic Cavendish's acclaimed monologue adaptation of George Orwell's Coming up for Air - first seen at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2008 - forms the first half of an unprecedented theatrical homage to Orwell created to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the novel and the 60th anniversary of his masterwork Nineteen Eighty-Four. As well as placing two of his best-loved essays - Shooting an Elephant and A Hanging - in a theatrical context, Cavendish has distilled The Ministry of Love interrogation scenes from 1984 into a short, sharp, shocking vignette of a man's inhumanity to man. Together they demonstrate the enduring power and range of Orwell's writing, its observational clarity, bracing humour and political intensity. Orwell: A Celebration was in production at the Trafalgar Studios, London, in June 2009.
