Homage to Catalonia is a bracing personal account of George Orwell's time fighting for the Republican army in the Spanish Civil War. Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. This edition is introduced by Helen Graham, a leading historian on the Spanish Civil War. George Orwell came to Spain in 1936 as a journalist, intending to report on the civil war. But on arrival in Barcelona he witnessed a revolution against the Spanish bourgeois in full swing - with the working class in the saddle - and almost immediately he joined the Republican militia to fight for this worthy cause. In Homage to Catalonia Orwell retells his experience of the Spanish Civil War with brutal honesty, from the painful stasis of the front line to the mania of street fighting, and from the tension of being in hiding to the relief of coming home to England. A unique first-hand account of war, it is also critical in our understanding of Orwell's political passions.

"Every line of serious work that I have written since 1936 has been written, directly or indirectly, against totalitarianism and for democratic socialism as I understand it." Thus wrote Orwell following his experiences as a militiaman in the Spanish Civil War, chronicled in Homage 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.

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. In “Homage to Catalonia”, Orwell recounts his experiences fighting in the Spanish Civil War on the side of the POUM militia of the Republican army, which would provide the inspiration and motivation for the anti-totalitarian themes that would come to pervade his writing. A fantastically detailed account of an ordinary foot soldier's life in wartime, “Homage to Catalonia” will appeal to those with an interest in socialism and is not to be missed by fans of Orwell's seminal work. Other notable works by this author include: “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".
