9780156767507: The Road to Wigan Pier

In the 1930s Orwell was sent by a socialist book club to investigate the appalling mass unemployment in the industrial north of England. He went beyond his assignment to investigate the employed as well-”to see the most typical section of the English working class.” Foreword by Victor Gollancz.

Review :

Although George Orwell grew up in the relative comfort of the English middle class, his socialist convictions and general sense of fairness led him to hate his country's deeply ingrained class structure. That perspective permeates this book, but the most striking elements are the quotidian details of life that Orwell observes in his first-person account of the lives of coal miners and others in the poor north of England. Wigan Pier is almost too realistic at times, as Orwell brings his unparalleled powers of observation to portray the wretched conditions of the working class. That Orwell may have slanted his reporting to make things look worse than they were is a question that does not lessen the book's interest.

Description du livre Cengage Learning, Inc, United States, 1972. Paperback. État : New. American.. Language: English . Brand New Book. In the 1930s George Orwell was sent by a socialist book club to investigate the appalling mass unemployment in the industrial north of England. He went beyond his assignment to investigate the employed as well. Not one to observe from the sidelines, Orwell shared the experiences of the coal miners, living in foul lodgings, subsisting on a meager diet, and going down into the hellish, back-breaking mines. What he saw and recorded helped clarify his feelings about socialism. In this book he pointedly tells why socialism, the only remedy to the shocking conditions he had witnessed, repelled so many normal decent people. His rebuke was so stinging that it brought a rebuttal from one of his sponsors, published as a foreward to the original edition of The Road to Wigan Pier and also included here.
