Orwell, George
Critical Essays.
Secker and Warburg, London, 1946. First edition of Orwell's essential collection of literary criticism. Octavo, original cloth. Near fine in a very good dust jacket with some rubbing to the extremities. Uncommon in the original dust jacket. In these essays, Orwell applies to writers as diverse as Dickens, Kipling, Frank Richards and P. G. Wodehouse a new method of critical analysis. The essays are not political tracts, their main emphasis is literary, but they open with the assumption that every writer is in some sense a propagandist and that subject-matter, imagery, even tricks of style are governed by the "message" that the writer is attempting to put across. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Raptis Rare Books, ABAA/ ILAB [Palm Beach, FL, U.S.A.]
