Inside the Whale & Other Essays by George Orwell


Nice UK mass market paperback w/ cover showing portrait of Orwell by Peter Blake.

Excellent reading copy with some light wear to cover and tanning to pages.  Small spot of damage to top margin of back cover. 

George Orwell is best remembered for ANIMAL FARM and 1984, but it is his essays that launched him. In them he not only demonstrated how he thought, but proposed a rule as to how thinking ought to proceed. Tracing his arguments and their development in these essays is a rich and rewarding exercise.

The range of Orwell's interests was limitless, and a glance at the titles of some of his subjects in this book gives us an idea..."Shooting an Elephant," "Lear, Tolstoy and the Fool" and "England Your England."
