Description

This new edition of Orwell's 1933 text comes with an authoratative introduction, explanatory notes, and a select bibliography to help first-time readers situate the novel in it's contexts and offer a fresh new re-evaluation of the work to returning readers.

  • George Orwell's first book tackles themes of social injustice, prejudice, and class discrimination that speak as loudly to a modern audience as they did to the original readership of 1933.
  • Published within the world-renowned Oxford World's Classics series, this new edition of the text re-evaluates traditional interpretations of the work and the importance of its genre and style.
  • The Oxford World's Classics edition is distinct in providing an accessible and authoritative introduction, explanatory notes, select bibliography, a chronology of Orwell's life and work, and a note on the textual edition.
