HOMAGE TO CATALONIA


HOMAGE TO CATALONIA

GEORGE ORWELL    Book Number: 89624    Product format: Paperback

'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 George 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. This first-hand account is intentionally unsparing and highlights the periodic brutality and routine squalor of war. Orwell himself suffered a serious neck wound and his descriptions of being shot are unforgettable. He also survived a Spanish prison. This classic was first published in 1938. 250pp, paperback.
