Homage to Catalonia: Penguin Modern Classics

Autor George Orwell Introducere de Julian Symon
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 30 mar 2000
'Every line of serious work that I have written since 1936 has been written, directly or indirectly,againsttotalitarianism andfordemocratic Socialism as I understand it'. Thus wrote Orwell following his experiences as a militiaman in the Spanish Civil War, chronicled inHomage to Catalonia. Here he brings to bear all the force of his humanity, passion and clarity, describing with bitter intensity the bright hopes and cynical betrayals of that chaotic episode: the revolutionary euphoria of Barcelona, the courage of ordinary Spanish men and women he fought alongside, the terror and confusion of the front, his near-fatal bullet wound and the vicious treachery of his supposed allies.

A firsthand account of the brutal conditions of the Spanish Civil War, George Orwell'sHomage to Cataloniaincludes an introduction by Julian Symons in Penguin Modern Classics.
