According to Orwell, the North was 'a strange country.' In an industrial landscape, its inhabitants seem to inhabit a bleak world caught in the gaze of 1930s realism.
Such stereotypes have been tenacious. This book challenges these stereotypes, establishing the strategic and mobile nature of 'the North' and the effects of literary realism.
