George Orwell ↠ 7 READ CHARACTERS í eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ↠ George Orwell READ A Collection of Essays 107 Rge Orwell fought the injustices of his time with singular vigor through pen and paper In this selection of essays he ranges from reflections on his boyhood schooling and the profession of writing to his views. The best collection of essays that I ve read so far14 well written essays by Eric Arthur Blair 1903 1950 also known as George Orwell It covers a wide range of topics from his childhood Spanish Civil War Mahatma Gandhi Charles Dickens Rudyard Kipling Jewish religion politics etc to his shooting of an elephant while serving as a police in Burma Perfectly written in his trademark direct clear and taut writing the style that I first encountered in his political satirical sci fi 1984 and political fable Animal FarmThe only difference is that these are non fiction The essays made me understand what kind of a man George Orwell was a lover of euality justice and free will Such Such Were the Joys 5 stars Amazing A very moving memoir of Orwell s stay at Crossgates a school for the rich students in England He only afforded to go to that school because he was a bright boy The school kept him because he had a good chance of passing entrance exams in the prestigious universities later and that would help maintaining the image of the school The one part that I found so sad was that the little George did not have a cake year after year during his stay at that school because his parents could not afford it and this was just one of the ways for a poor but bright pupil could be discriminated This boyhood memoir is better than Roald Dahl s Boy A Story of Childhood as this is inspiring and meatier Charles Dickens 5 stars Amazing David Copperfield and A Tale of the Two Cities are my two novels that I first read when I was in a fresh college graduate in the mid 80s That s why they will always be among my favorite classic works In this essay Orwell analyzes the works of Dickens in a way that is very easy to understand and will help you appreciate Dickens as a writer Orwell said that Dickens is a moralist he wanted to correct the wrongs that are perpetuated by either those in power or those who were rich in England during his time However there are a couple of his works that do not belong to this so called social propagandist drama and they are A Tale of the Two Cities and Hard Times All the works including David Copperfield Nicholas Nickleby Oliver Twist Martin Chuzzlewit and Our Mutual Friend follow a certain formula and fall into the same morality theme Orwell just made me want to line up next all the other books by Dickens that are in my to be read tbr file The Art of Donald McGill 3 stars I liked itDonald McGill 1875 1962 was a cartoonist whose comic strips were very popular in England during Orwell s time Prior to this I did not know that Britons would love daily comic strips in a way that I and my friends used to read Baltic and Co on the dailies when we were growing up Orwell examined the comic strips over the years and wrote a detailed analysis of its main theme and McGill s outlook on marriage sex gender euality and drunkenness He did not say that he was McGill s fan but he would not be able to write his conclusion of this long running comic strip had he not been a fan Orwell a comic strip s fan Rudyard Kipling 4 stars I really liked itOrwell gave his view on T S Eliot s defense of Kipling being branded as a Fascist This label seemed to be triggered by Kipling s written article regarding a white British soldier beating a nigger yes during that time this n word was still printable Orwell tends to disagree with Eliot by saying that there is a definite strain of sadism in him over and above the brutality which a write of that type has to have Kipling is a jingo imperialist he is morally insensitive and aesthetically disgusting Juicy rght Considering that they were both Englishmen and highly esteemed classic novelists However the essay is not all negative about Kipling in Orwell s point of view He says that Kipling was the only English write of their time who has added phrases to the language and they all became popular like East is East and West is West The white man s burden What do they know of England who only England know The female of the species is deadly than the male Somewhere East of Suez and Paying the Dane geld Raffles and Miss Blandish 4 stars I really liked itDetailed comparison between a 501 mystery book No Orchids for Miss Blandish 1939 by James Hadley Chase and the book that Orwell said to be the book that inspired it Raffles I have been looking for a copy of this Miss Blandish book What Orwell basically gave the plot of the story about a girl who was raped for a long period of time and she fell in love with her rapist but I did not take it as a spoiler Rather he made me want to order the book via so I can read it right away Well maybe in my next horde Shooting the Elephant 5 stars AmazingVery short yet I guess this is the best essay in the book It talks about Orwell s stay in Burma as a policeman He hated his job because he feels that the Burmese people do not like English people as they are the colonizers ie oppressors In this particular essay there is a runaway elephant that has killed a native Being a policeman Orwell is asked to kill the elephant I will not tell you the rest as it is too much of a spoiler If you have no time to read the whole book just read this while standing in the bookstore I assure you that it will be worth the time and the pressure on your legs You will get a glimpse a good glimpse of what kind of man the young Orwell was that probably drove him to write his books that are said to be anti totalitarianism Politics and the English Language 4 stars I really liked it Orwell criticizing the way school professors expressed themselves in written form He even gave excerpts of these English professors formal passages He said that the decline of the English language is brought about by the foolish thoughts of the writers These thoughts were made possible because of the slovenliness of the English language Hence the situation was similar to a man drinking because he feels himself to be a failure and he becomes a complete failure because he drinks He gamely offered these pieces of advice for writersi Never use a metaphor simile or other figure of speech which you are used to seeing in printii Never use a long word where a short one will doiii If it is possible to cut a word out always cut it outiv Never use the foreign phrase a scientific word or a jargon word if you can think of an everyday English euivalentv Break any of these rules sooner than say anything outright barbarous Reflections of Gandhi 4 stars I really liked itOrwell hailed Gandhi and his non violence but he emphasized that the old man did not do anything without personal ambitions If E M Forster s Passage to India was about British hypocrisy there were also a hint of hypocrisy in Gandhi s stance and writings For example when Gandhi was asked what should be done with the Jews in Europe Gandhi allegedly said that German Jews ought to commit collective suicide which would have aroused the world and the people of Germany to Hitler s violence After the war Gandhi justified himself the Jews had been killed anyway and might as well have died significantly Marrakech 3 stars I liked itBefore Hitler rose in power in 1931 Jewish jokes were common in Europe This explained he negative Jewish references that turned me off when I read my first book by Orwell a couple of years back Down and Out in Paris and London Now I know better The Jews have that distinctive look that was also intimated by Howard Jacobson in his Booker award winning book The Finkler uestion that was my first book read this year but they are cunning as they are gutsy in business and fond of money lending with interest Well that was according to Orwell Looking Back on the Spanish War 3 stars I liked itThe resistance of the working class against Franco British France and Russia sided with the urban trade union members while the Nazis Italy and Germany sided with Franco However Orwell uestioned the intent of Russia in the war This should have been an interesting essay but I found that war to have of little impact on me compared to WWII in the Pacific All I know is that American novelists like Hemingway or Cummings volunteered during this period as ambulance drivers This was because there was the Great Depression in the States so job was scarce Inside the Whale5 stars AmazingThis is about the feeling of claustrophobia that must have been similar to what the prophet Jonas felt while inside the whale Orwell used as a springboard Henry Miller and his opus The Tropic of Cancer Orwell praised Miller for his courage of writing something that belong to the 20 s and not in fashion When Tropic of Cancer was published the Italians were marching into Abyssinia and Hitler s concentration camps were already bulging The international foci of the of the world were Rome Moscow and Berlin It did not seem to be a moment at which a novel of outstanding value was likely to be written about American dead beats edging drinks in the Latin uarter France Of course a novelist is not obliged to write directly about contemporary history but a novelist who simply disregards the major public events of the moment is generally either a footler or a plain idiot Orwell went on explaining why he found this Miller book outstanding When I first opened Tropic of Cancer and saw that it was full of imprintable words my immediate reaction was a refusal to be impressed Most people s would be the same I believe Nevertheless after a lapse of time the atmosphere of the book besides innumerable details seemed to linger in my memory in a peculiar way Together with his other book Black Spring these two books created a world of their own as the saying goes The books that do this are not necessarily good books they maybe good bad books like Raffles or the Sherlock Holmes stories or perverse and morbid books like Wuthering Heights or The House of the Green Shutters Read him Miller for five pages ten pages and you feel the peculiar relief that comes not so much from understanding as from being understood He knows all about me you feel he wrote this especially for me It is as though you could hear a voice speaking to you a friendly American voice with no humbug in it no moral purpose merely an implicit assumption that we are all alike England Your England 3 stars I liked itAn essay that he wrote while Nazi airplanes were flying on the British skies dropping bombs Contains his many complaints about Britain s political system its stand during the war its alliances its expanding middle class etc Boys Weeklies 4 stars I really liked itOrwell sold newspaper dailies when he was a young boy and this essay includes his analysis of the dailies during his time I don t know of any newspapers in Britain so I was not able to relate to this one However I also sold newspapers in the province when I was a young boy Why I Write 5 stars AmazingFrom the tender age of 5 or 6 Orwell already knew that he wanted to become a writer He was the only boy in the family of 4 that includes his mother and two sisters older and younger He was a lonely boy probably because he did grow up with a father and he found comfort in books reading stories and novels and and writing poetry At the age of 16 he read Milton s Paradise Lost that made him realized that the beauty of the English language He gave the following as motivations the drive writers to write 1 Sheer egoism2 Esthetic enthusiasm3 Historical impulse4 Political purposeOrwell did not say it but I think the last one was what drove him to write 1984 and Animal Farm He wanted to push the world in a certain direction to alter other people s idea of the kind of society that they should strive after No book is genuinely free from political bias The opinion that art should have nothing to do with politics is itself a political attitude p 313Sorry for the long review I was just carried away by this book I did not know that reading essays could be as exciting and enriching as reading works of fiction Risk Takers: Uses and Abuses of Financial Derivatives, Third Edition injustices of his time with singular vigor through pen and paper In this selection of essays he ranges from reflections on
