Delving into the literary canon, George Orwell encounters dusty classics and lesser-known works of literature on his own exhilarating terms. The novels of Henry Miller lead him inside the belly of Jonah's whale, an imagined refuge in a time of total war. A trenchant investigation of Charles Dickens unfolds into a poignant portrait of nineteenth-century liberalism. A minor pamphlet on Shakespeare by Tolstoy provokes a stirring evocation of humanism and the excessive vitality of life.

A series of singularly thrilling reading experiences, they celebrate Orwell's engagement with the world of writers and literature.

George Orwell, born Eric Arthur Blair, was a novelist, essayist, journalist and critic. He served as an Imperial Police Officer in Myanmar (formerly Burma), lived in near-destitution in Paris and fought against fascism in the Spanish Civil War. His powerful explorations, in both novels and essays, of totalitarianism and fascism firmly established the adjective 'Orwellian' in the English language.
