Homage to Catalonia -- George Orwell

Staff Pick

Before he was George Orwell of literary fame he was Eric Blair, a largely unknown Englishman who arrived in Barcelona in 1936 to fight in the Spanish Civil War. Orwell, with a touch of sadness and humor as well as a refreshingly modest humanity, thoughtfully conveys the story of his involvement in this enigmatic conflict. This isn't a story of someone who had a profound impact on the war. Rather it's the story of someone who experienced the profound impacts of war in all its glory, horror, and absurdity. Glimmers of the writer he was to become lie within.
