Description

A personal study of George Orwell's life and work. From the moment we open the pages of My Orwell it is clear that the author has a deep affection for his subject - the brilliant left-wing novelist and essayist who gave the world Homage to Catalonia, Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four. Here is an intriguingly personal view of a maverick Englishman, an eccentric genius and anti-Establishment, anti-Imperialist figure who turned away from his priveleged public school background and focused on the other side of England and her Empire - the poverty, brutality, prejudice and jingoism. G. Wesley McCullough takes us through Orwell's maze of near-Dickensian characters, outlines his plots, points out his inconsistencies, yet praises his passion for life and causes and his intense involvement in the world he knew. With plentiful original quotation, the text offers us rich glimpses of Orwell's literary style - and his gift for poignant observation. Highly entertaining and thoroughly rewarding, My Orwell provides - on the eve of the centenary of Orwell's birth - a wonderful reminder and fresh portrait of one of the twentieth century's great authors.
