Book Description Tapa dura. Condition: New. 1. "One cannot help but be struck by the degree to which he (George Orwell) became, in Henry James\'s words, one of those upon whom nothing was lost. By declining to lie, even as far as possible to himself, and by his determination to seek elusive but verifiable truth, he showed how much can be accomplished by an individual who unites the qualities of intellectual honesty and moral courage." -- Christopher HitchensOrwell\'s first work -- a sensitive and insightful description of the life of the working poor in Paris and the homeless in London. It is still very relevant today, and while aimed at the casual reader, it is of interest to the scholar and activist.George Orwell&nbsp(born Eric Blair, 1903, Motihari, Bengal, died Jan 1950, London)was a leading British writer of the twentieth century.&nbspHe studied at Wellington College and&nbspEton (1917-1921) where he was a King\'s Scholar. After Eton, he followed family tradition and joined the Indian Imperial Police in Burma, until 1927 when, disgusted by imperialism, he resigned to pursue his boyhood dream of being a writer.&nbspHe published an autobiographical book&nbspDown and Out in London and Paris, with Victor Gollancz Ltd. under his pen name of George Orwell.&nbspThis established his literary career.&nbspOrwell was a prolific journalist, essayist, novelist and nonfiction writer.&nbspHe is remembered for his prescient writing and his unwavering commitment to truth and clarity of expression. His last two novels--Animal Farm&nbspand&nbspNineteen Eighty-Four--have placed him at the pinnacle of British literature. - Libro bajo demanda. Seller Inventory # 1849025940
