The Orwell Reader is a remarkable collection that showcases Orwell's talent as a writer, reporter, and social critic. Selected from his vast array of fiction, essays, and reportage, the writings in this anthology reveal the development of Orwell as a writer and a thinker, as well as reflect and illuminate the troubled times in which he lived and worked. His gifts as an interpreter of the social and political landscape are justly celebrated, as is his mastery of the vivid portrait, the humorous scene, and the dramatic and absorbing tale. To readers who are familiar only with Orwell's famous works, this collection offers a fresh and stimulating view of a writer in whom compassion and enjoyment are as native as the rage for justice.
