1984

Published in the summer of 1949, George Orwell’s nineteen Eighty-Four is one of the most definitive texts of modern literature. Set in Oceania, one of the three inter-continental superstate that divided the world among themselves after a global war, Orwell’s masterful critique of the political structures of the time, works itself out through the story of Winston Smith, a man caught in the webs of a dystopian future, and his clandestine love affair with Julia, a young woman he meets during the course of his work for the government. As much as it is an entertaining read, nineteen Eighty-Four is also a brilliant, and more importantly, a timeless satirical attack on the social and political structures of the world.

Animal Farm

Animal Farm

The greatest political satire of our times

The animals on Manor Farm revolt against their human masters and take control. Led by the pigs they decide to run the farm on egalitarian principles. In time, the pigs are corrupted by power and a new tyrannical order is established under their leader Napoleon.

Animal Farm is a satirical fable and tells us how good intentions and noble ideals can quickly metamorphose into greed, corruption, betrayal and decadence. A modern classic, it remains as relevant and insightful today as it was when it was first published in 1945.

Revised edition: Previously published as Animal Farm, this edition of Animal Farm (Westland Classics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

Animal Farm (GP Hardbacks)

Animal Farm (GP Hardbacks)

Animal Farm is regarded in the Literary field as one of the most famous satirical allegories of Soviet totalitarianism. Orwell based the book on Events up to and during Joseph Stalin's regime. Orwell, a democratic socialist and a member of the Independent Labour Party for many years, was a critic of Stalin and was suspicious of Moscow-directed Stalinism after his experiences in the Spanish Civil War.

The plot is an allegory in which the pigs in a farm play the role of the Bolshevik revolutionaries and overthrow and oust the human owners of the farm, setting it up as a commune in which, at first, all animals are equal. The other characters have their parallels in the real world, but care should be taken with these comparisons as they do not always match History exactly and often simply represent generalised concepts.

The novel was chosen by TIME Magazine as one of the 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to the present.

The superstate and its residents are dictated to by a political regime euphemistically named English Socialism, shortened to 'Ingsoc' in Newspeak, the government's invented language. The superstate is under the control of the privileged elite of the Inner Party, a party and Government that persecutes individualism and independent thinking as 'thought-crime', which is enforced by the 'Thought Police'. This novel, in a way, criticizes the forced implement of the colonial thought system and life onto various colonies by the Great Britain.

Homage to Catalonia

Homage to Catalonia

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 Civil War.
 
“No one except George Orwell . . . made the violence and self-dramatization of Spain so burning and terrible.”— Alfred Kazin,New York Times
 
“A wise book, one that once read will never be forgotten.”—Chicago Sunday Tribune

Modern Classics Homage To Catalonia (Penguin Modern Classics)

Modern Classics Homage To Catalonia (Penguin Modern Classics)

'Every line of serious Work that I have written since 1936 has been written, directly or indirectly, against totalitarianism and for democratic Socialism as I understand it'. Thus wrote Orwell following his experiences as a militiaman in the Spanish Civil War, chronicled in Homage to Catalonia. Here he brings to bear all the force of his humanity, passion and clarity, describing with bitter intensity the bright hopes and cynical betrayals of that chaotic episode: the Revolutionary euphoria of Barcelona, the courage of ordinary Spanish Men and Women he fought alongside, the terror and confusion of the front, his near-fatal bullet wound and the vicious treachery of his supposed allies. A firsthand account of the brutal conditions of the Spanish Civil War, George Orwell's Homage to Catalonia includes an introduction by Julian Symons in Penguin Modern Classics.

Animal Farm

Animal Farm

When the oppressed animals of Manor Farm defeat their master, Mr. Jones and take over the farm for themselves, they envisage it to be the beginning of independence and abundance. However, a devious and heartless elite among the animals starts to take control and the other animals find themselves helplessly trapped as another gradually replaces one form of dictatorship. Orwell’s frightening ‘fairy story’ is a timeless and overwhelming Satire of idealism deceived by power and corruption. Although, it almost remained unpublished due to its savage attack on Stalin, Britain’s then ally and got turned down by publisher after publisher, today it’s known to be one of Orwell’s best works and a world-famous classic.

Seeing Things as They Are: Selected Journalism and Other Writings (Penguin Modern Classics)

Seeing Things as They Are: Selected Journalism and Other Writings (Penguin Modern Classics)

'This selection is a ceaseless delight ... there is a treat on almost every page' Daily Telegraph

George Orwell wrote, in his words, from 'a desire to see things as they are'. This new collection of his Journalism and other writings, including articles, essays, broadcasts, poems, book and film reviews from across his career, shows his unmatched genius for observing the world. Whether discussing Polish immigration or Scottish independence, railing against racism, defending the English language or holding an imaginary conversation with Jonathan Swift, these pieces reveal a clear-eyed, Entertaining and eternally relevant chronicler of his age.

Edited with an introduction by Peter Davison

'Orwell's luminous gift was for seeing things, for noticing what others missed, took for granted or simply found uninteresting, for discovering meaning and wonder in the familiarity of the everyday... Nothing escaped or seemed beneath his notice, which was what made him such a good reporter... Seeing Things As They Are is intended to be a collection first and foremost of his journalism, with preference given to lesser-known pieces and reviews as well as some of the poems he wrote. It is full of Interest and curiosities' Jason Cowley, Financial Times

'Peter Davison gives us a feast of [Orwell's] shorter writings, showing how from such hesitant beginnings he evolved into the writer of enduring importance we know, committed to decency, equality and political honesty, who could nevertheless wax lyrical over the first signs of spring or an imaginary English pub' Gordon Bowker, Independent

England Your England (Penguin Modern Classics)

England Your England (Penguin Modern Classics)

'England is a Family in which the young are generally thwarted and most of the power is in the hands of irresponsible uncles and bedridden aunts. Still, it is a family.'

'England Your England' is one of the most compelling and insightful portraits of the nation ever written. Shot through with Orwell's deeply felt sense of patriotism and love for his homeland, the essay is at the same Time unfailingly clear-eyed about the nation's failings: entrenched social inequality, a dishonest press and a class system that only works for those at the top. Written during the Second World War, as the bombs were falling on England, the essay today speaks to the nation's current moment of crisis just as urgently as it did in Orwell's own time. It is a crucial read for anyone who wants to understand who we are, and where we've come from.

Politics and the English Language (Penguin Modern Classics)

Politics and the English Language (Penguin Modern Classics)

'Politics and the English Language' is widely considered Orwell's most important essay on style. Style, for Orwell, was never simply a question of aesthetics; it was always inextricably linked to Politics and to truth.'All Issues are political issues, and Politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.When the General atmosphere is bad, language must suffer.'Language is a political issue, and slovenly use of language and cliches make it easier for those in power to deliberately use misleading language to hide unpleasant political facts. Bad English, he believed, was a vehicle for oppressive ideology, and it is no accident that 'Politics and the English Language' was written after the close of World War II.
