Description

Commissioned by the Left Book club in 1936, George Orwell set out to report on working class life in the bleak industrial heartlands of Yorkshire and Lancashire. The experience profoundly changed him, and in "Wigan Pier" he unleased a brilliant and bitter polemic that has not lost its force with the passage of time. The first edition of "The Road to Wigan Pier' included 32 plates. These illustrations of slum conditions, which give added resonance to Orwell's indictment, are restored in this new edition.

Author Biography

Eric Arthur Blair (George Orwell) was born in India in 1903. He was educated at Eton, served with the Indian Imperial Police in Burma, and worked in Britain as a private tutor, schoolteacher, bookshop assistant and journalist. In 1936, Orwell went to fight for the Republicans in the Spanish Civil War and was wounded. In 1938 he was admitted into a sanatorium and from then on was never fully fit. George Orwell died in London in 1950.
