Synopsis: Homage to Catalonia is political journalist and novelist George Orwell's personal account of his experiences and observations in the Spanish Civil War...

Review: "I wonder what is the appropriate first action when you come from a country at war and set foot on peaceful soil. Mine was to rush to the tobacco-kiosk and buy as many cigars and cigarettes as I could stuff into my pockets." Most war correspondents observe wars and then tell stories about the battles, the soldiers and the civilians. George Orwell--novelist, journalist, sometime socialist--actually traded his press pass for a uniform and fought against Franco's Fascists in the Spanish Civil War during 1936 and 1937. He put his politics and his formidable conscience to the toughest tests during those days in the trenches in the Catalan section of Spain. Then, after nearly getting killed, he went back to England and wrote a gripping account of his experiences, as well as a complex analysis of the political machinations that led to the defeat of the socialist Republicans and the victory of the Fascists.

Book Description Canongate Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2011. CD-Audio. Book Condition: New. Unabridged edition. Language: English . Brand New. ISBN: 9781906147839 / Cat No: TT7CD903 Homage to Catalonia is George Orwell s vivid account of his experiences fighting in the Spanish Civil War, and a portrait of disillusionment which offers background to the anti-Stalinist subtexts to his later novels, Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four. Orwell s experiences include being shot in the neck by a sniper, and being forced into hiding as factions of the Left battle on the streets of Barcelona. Orwell entered Spain intending to gather an experience worth writing as well as to fight Fascism, and wrote Homage to Catalonia within months of his return. His fresh memories, honesty and bitterness make for a fulfilling and rounded account of a man s journey from naive enthusiasm to a reluctant loss of ideals. The book was praised for being one of few works of literature to come out of the Spanish Civil War which didn t toe the Communist line; instead, Orwell expresses his anger and unsentimentality about the Left, having seen the political chaos of Republican Spain with his own eyes.
