Homage to Catalonia

George Orwell
Edited by Lisa Mullen

Oxford World's Classics

  • This follows the original text of the 1938 first edition, amended to conform with Orwell's 'Errata to Homage to Catalonia', which he compiled in 1949.
  • The introduction develops the argument that Homage to Catalonia transcends its contested status as history and demands to be read on its own terms as a work of literature by a writer at the height of his powers.
  • By examining Homage to Catalonia, not just as a historic piece of reportage, but as an aesthetic response to the rise of fascism and post-truth propaganda, this new edition emphasises its powerful influence on Orwell's greatest works of fiction.
