Down and Out in Paris and London by , Book Resume:

Originally published in 1933, “Down and Out in Paris and London” is a memoir in two parts by English author George Orwell. His first full-length work, it chronicles the time he spent living in poverty in London and Paris, recounting his experiences working casual manual labour jobs and living as a vagabond on the fringes of society. A fascinating and thought-provoking insight into the poverty that exists in the two prosperous cities, “Down and Out in Paris and London” is not to be missed by fans of Orwell's seminal work. Eric Arthur Blair (1903–1950), more commonly known by his pen name George Orwell, was an English journalist, essayist, critic, and novelist most famous for his novel “Nineteen Eighty-Four” (1949) and allegorical novella “Animal Farm” (1945). His work is characterised by an opposition to totalitarianism and biting social commentary, and remains influential in popular culture today. Many of his neologisms have forever entered the English language, including "Thought Police", "Big Brother", "Room 101", "doublethink", "thoughtcrime", and "Newspeak" to name but a few. Other notable works by this author include: "Burmese Days" (1934), "Keep the Aspidistra Flying" (1936), and "Coming Up for Air" (1939). Read & Co. Classics is proudly publishing this memoir now in a new edition complete with the introductory essay "Why I Write".

The People of the Abyss by Jack London Book Resume:

The experiences related in this volume fell to me in the summer of 1902. I went down into the underworld of London with an attitude of mind which I may best liken to that of the explorer. I was open to be convinced by the evidence of my eyes, rather than by the teachings of those who had not seen, or by the words of those who had seen and gone before. Further, I took with me certain simple criteria with which to measure the life of the underworld. That which made for more life, for physical and spiritual health, was good; that which made for less life, which hurt, and dwarfed, and distorted life, was bad.

Shooting an Elephant by George Orwell Book Resume:

A biting critique of British imperialism, wrapped in a highly personal story about a police officer in colonial Burma. While he is most famous for his long-form fiction, including such works as Nineteen Eighty-Four and Animal Farm, George Orwell was also an accomplished essayist, and Shooting an Elephant stands as one of his best, and most well known, pieces. Orwell worked as a police officer in Burma earlier in his, and there has been a great deal of debate about whether the story is autobiographical.

A Clergyman's Daughter by George Orwell Book Resume:

'The face was quite unfamiliar to her, and yet not strange. She had not known till this moment what face to expect'. A Clergyman's Daughter is George Orwell's least well-known, most unappreciated novel. Drawing on his experiences as a hop-picker, teacher, and urban vagrant, it tells the peculiar story of Dorothy Hare, the daughter of the Rector of St Athelstan's in the fictional town of Knype Hill. Unacknowledged by her absent-minded father and gossiped about by his rheumatic parishioners, Dorothy is suddenly and traumatically catapulted into the unknown. She wakes up in London, her memory temporarily gone; travels to the Kentish countryside; spends a night in Trafalgar Square; works for the authoritarian schoolteacher Mrs Creevy; and then journeys back to her old, limited life. A novel about loss and return, A Clergyman's Daughter charts the course of a young woman's voyage out and circular homecoming. In his introduction to the novel, Nathan Waddell lays out the fantastical elements and socio-political dimensions of A Clergyman's Daughter and examines how it drew inspiration from James Joyce's epic modernist novel Ulysses, a book Orwell deeply admired. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

All Art Is Propaganda by George Orwell Book Resume:

As a critic, George Orwell cast a wide net. Equally at home discussing Charles Dickens and Charlie Chaplin, he moved back and forth across the porous borders between essay and journalism, high art and low. A frequent commentator on literature, language, film, and drama throughout his career, Orwell turned increasingly to the critical essay in the 1940s, when his most important experiences were behind him and some of his most incisive writing lay ahead. All Art Is Propaganda follows Orwell as he demonstrates in piece after piece how intent analysis of a work or body of work gives rise to trenchant aesthetic and philosophical commentary. With masterpieces such as "Politics and the English Language" and "Rudyard Kipling" and gems such as "Good Bad Books," here is an unrivaled education in, as George Packer puts it, "how to be interesting, line after line."

The Auschwitz Photographer by Luca Crippa,Maurizio Onnis Book Resume:

Based on the powerful true story of Auschwitz prisoner Wilhelm Brasse, whose photographs helped to expose the atrocities of the Holocaust. 'Horror in sharp focus... important, because the world must know.' John Lewis-Stempel, Daily Express __________ When Germany invaded Wilhelm Brasse's native Poland in 1939, he was asked to swear allegiance to Hitler and join the Wehrmacht. He refused. He was deported to Auschwitz concentration camp as political prisoner number 3444. A trained portrait photographer, he was ordered by the SS to record the inner workings of the camp. He began by taking identification photographs of prisoners as they entered the camp, went on to capture the criminal medical experiments of Josef Mengele, and also recorded executions. Between 1940 and 1945, Brasse took around 50,000 photographs of the horror around him. He took them because he had no choice. Eventually, Brasse's conscience wouldn't allow him to hide behind his camera. First he risked his life by joining the camp's Resistance movement, faking documents for prisoners, trying to smuggle images to the outside world to reveal what was happening. Then, when Soviet troops finally advanced on the camp to liberate it, Brasse refused SS orders to destroy his photographs. 'Because the world must know,' he said. For readers of The Librarian of Auschwitz and The Boy Who Followed His Father into Auschwitz, this powerful true story of hope and courage lies at the very centre of Holocaust history. __________ 'A remarkable tale of survival against the odds... an enthralling book.' The Sydney Morning Herald 'Brasse has left us with a powerful legacy in images. Because of them we can see the victims of the Holocaust as human and not statistics.' Fergal Keane

George Orwell by Robert Colls Book Resume:

An intellectual who did not like intellectuals, a socialist who did not trust the state, a writer of the left who found it easier to forgive writers of the right, a liberal who was against free markets, a Protestant who believed in religion but not in God, a fierce opponent of nationalism who defined Englishness for a generation. Aside from being one of the greatest political essayists in the English language and author of two of the most famous books in twentieth century literature, George Orwell was a man of many fascinating contradictions, someone who liked to go against the grain because he believed that was where the truth usually lay. George Orwell. English Rebel takes us on a journey through the many twists and turns of Orwell's life and thought, from the precocious public school satirist at Eton and the imperial policeman in Burma, through his early years as a rather dour documentary writer, down and out on the streets of Paris and London and on the road to Wigan pier, o his formative experiences as a volunteer soldier in the Spanish Civil War. Above all, the book skilfully traces Orwell's gradual reconciliation with his country, a journey which began down a coal mine in 1936 to find its exhilarating peaks during the dark days of the Second World War.

The Ministry of Truth by Dorian Lynskey Book Resume:

"Rich and compelling. . .Lynskey’s account of the reach of 1984 is revelatory.” --George Packer, The Atlantic An authoritative, wide-ranging, and incredibly timely history of 1984--its literary sources, its composition by Orwell, its deep and lasting effect on the Cold War, and its vast influence throughout world culture at every level, from high to pop. 1984 isn't just a novel; it's a key to understanding the modern world. George Orwell's final work is a treasure chest of ideas and memes--Big Brother, the Thought Police, Doublethink, Newspeak, 2+2=5--that gain potency with every year. Particularly in 2016, when the election of Donald Trump made it a bestseller ("Ministry of Alternative Facts," anyone?). Its influence has morphed endlessly into novels (The Handmaid's Tale), films (Brazil), television shows (V for Vendetta), rock albums (Diamond Dogs), commercials (Apple), even reality TV (Big Brother). The Ministry of Truth is the first book that fully examines the epochal and cultural event that is 1984 in all its aspects: its roots in the utopian and dystopian literature that preceded it; the personal experiences in wartime Great Britain that Orwell drew on as he struggled to finish his masterpiece in his dying days; and the political and cultural phenomena that the novel ignited at once upon publication and that far from subsiding, have only grown over the decades. It explains how fiction history informs fiction and how fiction explains history.

George Orwell ́s Documentary Work - Focusing on "Down and Out in Paris and London" and "The Road to Wigan Pier" as examples by Birthe Stolz Book Resume:

Seminar paper from the year 2003 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2+, University of Duisburg-Essen, course: Dystopian Literature - Huxley and Orwell, 27 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: In this term paper I want to focus on two of the most popular documentaries by George Orwell: Down and Out in Paris and London and The Road to Wigan Pier. While most people, when hearing the name George Orwell, think of the novel 1984 and the fable Animal Farm, only a few know that his first literary successes were books of a very different genre. The documentaries DOPL and RWP influenced his career as a political writer and coined him as an ambivalent left-wing intellectual. The term paper is structured chronologically, first dealing with DOPL and then focusing on RWP. In order to understand Orwell ́s curiosity regarding the English working-class and the poor in general, I found it important to give a brief overview on his social background (chapter 2). I will then continue with explaining the circumstances in which Orwell found himself before going to London and Paris and describing his motives for living among the oppressed (chapter 3.1). In order to give an impression of the contents of the book, chapter 3.2 summarizes the most interesting and important passages and quotations. Chapter. 3.3 focuses on the style and the literary means. The last chapter on DOPL (chapter 3.4) refers to Orwell ́s political standpoint when writing the book, including opinions and reactions to the latter. Chapter 4.1 begins with a description of the political and economic situation in the 1930 ́s. In my mind, it is important to get an impression of the problems and circumstances of the historical background when Orwell gathered the material for RWP because the time is closely connected with the content of the book. In the next chapter, I again will give an answer to the question why Orwell wrote this book which in this case is a little different because it was commissioned. Furthermore I will discuss the meaning and the function of the Left Book Club which played an important role in respect of RWP. Chapter 4.3 summarizes the two parts of the book while chapter 4.4. again focuses on stylistic and literary means. The importance of the political substance of RWP is mirrored in chapter 4.5, including Orwell ́s aims, analysis, definition of socialism and his attacks on middle-class socialists. The last chapter of the term paper deals with the controversial opinions RWP called forth and especially with its opponents of the left-wing intelligentsia.

Orwell on Truth by George Orwell Book Resume:

Over the course of his career, George Orwell wrote about many things, but no matter what he wrote the goal was to get at the fundamental truths of the world. He had no place for dissemblers, liars, conmen, or frauds, and he made his feelings well-known. In Orwell on Truth, excerpts from across Orwell’s career show how his writing and worldview developed over the decades, profoundly shaped by his experiences in the Spanish Civil War, and further by World War II and the rise of totalitarian states. In a world that seems increasingly like one of Orwell’s dystopias, a willingness to speak truth to power is more important than ever. With Orwell on Truth, readers get a collection of both powerful quotes and the context for them.

1984. Nineteen Eighty-Four. Animal farm. Down and Out In Paris and London. Illustrated by George Orwell Book Resume:

A lot of things that Orwell described as if happening in 1984 can be observed in the nowadays world. However, he depicted the future that everyone should be afraid of at any time. The anti-utopian parable or satiric story Animal Farm is an allegory of the Revolution of 1917 and the following events in the USSR. It shows the transformation of supposedly animal society: from the complete freedom after the cruel former owner, Mr. Jones was banished to the dictatorship of the boar, Napoleon. Down and Out in Paris and London is a memoir in two parts on the theme of poverty in the two cities, which was written deliberately in a non-academic tone.
