A searing account of George Orwell s experiences of working class life in the bleak industrial heartlands of Yorkshire and Lancashire i The Road to Wigan Pier i is a brilliant and bitter polemic that has lost none of its political impact over time His graphically unforgettable descriptions of social injustice slum housing mining conditions squalor hunger and growing unemployment are written with unblinking honesty fury and great humanity, 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, London Gordon Comstock has declared war on the money god and Gordon is losing the war Nearly and rather moth eaten already a poet whose one small book of verse has fallen flatter than any pancake Gordon has given up a good job and gone to work in a bookshop at half his former salary Always broke but too proud to accept charity he rarely sees his few friends and cannot get the virginal Rosemary to bed because or so he believes If you have no money women won t love you On the windowsill of Gordon s shabby rooming house room is a sickly but unkillable aspidistra a plant he abhors as the banner of the sort of mingy lower middle class decency he is fleeing in his downward flight br br In i Keep the Aspidistra Flying i George Orwell has created a darkly compassionate satire to which anyone who has ever been oppressed by the lack of brass or by the need to make it will all too easily relate He etches the ugly insanity of what Gordon calls the money world in unflinching detail but the satire has a second edge too and Gordon himself is scarcely heroic In the course of his misadventures we become grindingly aware that his radical solution to the problem of the money world is no solution at all that in his desperate reaction against a monstrous system he has become something of a monster himself br br Orwell keeps both of his edges sharp to the very end a happy ending that poses tough questions about just how happy it really is That the book itself is not sour but constantly fresh and frequently funny is the result of Orwell s steady unsentimental attention to the telling detail his dry quiet humor his fascination with both the follies and the excellences of his characters and his courageous refusal to embrace the comforts of any easy answer, 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
