Homage To Catalonia Down And Out In Paris And London by George Orwell


Original Title: Homage To Catalonia Down And Out In Paris And London

Homage to Catalonia is both a memoir of Orwell’s experience at the front in the Spanish Civil War and a tribute to those who died in what he called a fight for common decency. Down and Out in Paris and London chronicles the adventures of a penniless British writer who finds himself rapidly descending into the seedy heart of two great European cities. This edition brings together two powerful works from one of the finest writers of the twentieth century.

Homage To Catalonia by George Orwell


Original Title: Homage To Catalonia

Passionately opposed to fascism, British author George Orwell served as an soldier in the militia for the POUM—the Worker’s Party of Marxist Unification, one of the parties involved in the Spanish Civil War—from 1936–1937. Serving on the frontlines, Orwell saw action in Catalonia and Aragon, and was seriously wounded by a sniper in May 1937. At the same time that Orwell was recovering from his injuries, the POUM was declared illegal and Orwell was forced to flee Spain in order to avoid arrest. In Homage to Catalonia, Orwell frankly recounts his experiences as a soldier, revealing his passionate commitment to the ideals of communism and his equally passionate opposition to fascism. Be it mystery, romance, drama, comedy, politics, or history, great literature stands the test of time.
