As ferociously fresh as it was more than a half century ago this remarkable allegory of a downtrodden society of overworked mistreated animals and their quest to create a paradise of progress justice and equality is one of the most scathing satires ever published As we witness the rise and bloody fall of the revolutionary animals we begin to recognize the seeds of totalitarianism in the most idealistic organization and in our most charismatic leaders the souls of our cruelest oppressors, Shooting an Elephant is Orwell s searing and painfully honest account of his experience as a police officer in imperial Burma killing an escaped elephant in front of a crowd solely to avoid looking a fool The other masterly essays in this collection include classics such as My Country Right or Left How the Poor Die and Such Such were the Joys his memoir of the horrors of public school as well as discussions of Shakespeare sleeping rough boys weeklies and a spirited defence of English cooking Opinionated uncompromising provocative and hugely entertaining all show Orwell s unique ability to get to the heart of any subject, The year has come and gone but George Orwell s prophetic nightmarish vision in of the world we were becoming is timelier than ever i i is still the great modern classic of negative utopia a startlingly original and haunting novel that creates an imaginary world that is completely convincing from the first sentence to the last four words No one can deny the novel s hold on the imaginations of whole generations or the power of its admonitions a power that seems to grow not lessen with the passage of time, This unusual fictional account in good part autobiographical narrates without self pity and often with humor the adventures of a penniless British writer among the down and out of two great cities The Parisian episode is fascinating for its expose of the kitchens of posh French restaurants where the narrator works at the bottom of the culinary echelon as dishwasher or plongeur In London while waiting for a job he experiences the world of tramps street people and free lodging houses In the tales of both cities we learn some sobering Orwellian truths about poverty and society
