George Orwell Hardback
Edited by Courtney T. Wemyss, Alexej Ugrinsky
This collection of essays addresses a number of facets of George Orwell, examining both Orwell the man of letters and Orwell the political man.
In his preface, Courtney Wemyss asserts that Orwell may not receive the recognition he is due because at present he is appreciated for the wrong reasons.
The author of other fine novels (such as Burmese Days and Coming up for Air), Orwell should also be recognized for his literary criticism, book reviews, and documentaries, which depict the England of his times in the manner of Samuel Pepys.
The Less-recognized--and equally important--facets of George Orwell's works and impact on English culture presented in this collection will prove informative to Orwell specialists and to scholars of twentieth-century English literature and politics.
