Reviews

  • Best known for novels 1984 and Animal Farm, Orwell was also a superb essayist, and these two fine collections display his breadth of topic and depth of skill... Unpretentious, intelligent, compassionate and brilliantly insightful

    Doug Johnstone, Big Issue
  • It is [his] critical essays which strike home and are reread... His essays form the laurels of the crown on his troubled brow

    Spectator
  • Orwell's essays are among the best things he did

    Daily Telegraph
