Reader's note

George Orwell was well aware that political creeds are often rationalisations of emotional problems. Here, with remarkable human insight, he shows us a man in process of maturing from infantile and negative hatreds into a positive acceptance of life. The following excerpt taken from the beginning of the book showcases main character Gordon making excuses - He jingled the coins in his pocket. He was nearly thirty and had accomplished nothing; only his miserable book of poems that had fallen flatter than any pancake. And ever since, for two whole years, he had been struggling in the labyrinth of a dreadful book that never got any further, and which, as he knew in his moments of clarity, never would get any further. It was the lack of money, simply the lack of money, that robbed him of the power to 'write'. - find out how his perspective changes. Add this classic, orange, penguin to your collection today.
