In this collection of eight witty and sharply written essays, Orwell looks at, among others, the joys of spring (even in London), the picture of humanity painted by Gulliver and his travels, and the strange benefit of the doubt that the public permit Salvador Dali.

It also included here are a mouth-watering essay on the delights of English Cooking and a shocking account of killing an elephant in Burma.
