In this collection a group of political scientists, literary critics, social historians and writers reassess "Nineteen Eighty-Four" and other parts of Orwell's oeuvre. Bernard Crick's "Orwell and English Socialism" serves as an introduction to the various threads followed up in these essays - Orwell's evolving political ideas, his devotion to good writing, and the final concentration of his thought into the savage satire of "Nineteen Eighty-Four".
