Keep The Aspidistra Flying
In Keep the Aspidistra Flying, 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.
A Clergyman's Daughter
Intimidated by her father, the rector of Knype Hill, Dorothy performs her submissive roles of dutiful daughter and bullied housekeeper. Her thoughts are taken up with the costumes she is making for the church school play, the hopelessness of preaching to the poor, and by debts.
Coming Up for Air
George Orwell's paean to the end of an idyllic era in British history, Coming Up for Air, is a poignant account of one man's attempt to recapture childhood innocence as war looms on the horizon. George Bowling, forty-five, mortgaged, married with children.
Burmese Days describe corruption and imperial bigotry in a society where, 'after all, natives were natives'. When Flory, a white timber merchant, befriends Indian Dr. Veraswami, he defies this orthodoxy.
When the downtrodden animals of Manor Farm overthrow their master Mr. Jones and take over the farm themselves, they imagine it is the beginning of a life of freedom and equality. But gradually, a cunning, ruthless élite among them, masterminded by the pig's Napoleon and Snowball, starts to take control.
Winston Smith rewrites history. It’s his job. Hidden away in the Record Department of the sprawling Ministry of Truth, he helps the Party, and the omnipresent Big Brother, control the people of Oceania.
