In this widely acclaimed biographical essay, Christopher Hitchens evaluates the life span, achievements, and myth of George Orwell’s great political writer and participant, George Orwell.True emulative and counter-current in style, Hitchens is both admiring and aggressive, sympathetic but critical, taking the true measure of his subject matter as a hero and his problem.Responding to both detractors and false asylum seekers, Hitchens tears down the facade of holiness, erected by hagiographers and refutes criticism, point by point.He examines Orwell and his point of view on fascism, empire, feminism, and on this side of Britain, as well as his view on America, a country and a culture to which he has exposed much ambivalence.If reflection on empires or dictatorships, race or class, nationalism or popular culture, Orwell’s moral perspective remains indispensable in a world that has undergone great change in the fifty years since his death.Combining the best of Hitchens’s polemic of punch and intellectual elegance in a dense and subtle argument, this book addresses not only why Orwell questions today, but how it will continue to be so in an uncertain future world.Christopher Hitchens, one of the most incisive minds of our time, responds to Orwell on the page in this provocative encounter of spirit, restraint and moral truth on this provocative encounter of mind, restraint and moral truth
