Mehr über den Autor

Die utopische Fabel "Farm der Tiere" und der Roman "1984", eine Schreckensutopie über das Leben in einer totalitären Gesellschaft, sind zwei der meistgelesenen Bücher des 20. Jahrhunderts. Sie stammen von dem Briten Eric Arthur Blair alias George Orwell, geboren am 25. Januar 1903 in Indien. Bereits in seinem Romandebüt "Erledigt in Paris und London" zeigt sich der Autor politisch motiviert; kritisch beschäftigt er sich darin mit dem Leben von Obdachlosen, zu denen er als junger Mann selbst zeitweise gehört hatte. Er kämpfte 1936 im Spanischen Bürgerkrieg, in dem er schwer verletzt wurde. "Animal Farm" erschien 1945, ein Jahr darauf "1984". George Orwell starb am 21. Januar 1950 in London an Tuberkulose. Sechs Wochen vor seinem Tod heiratete Orwell seine langjährige Freundin Sonia Brownell.

Format: Taschenbuch
I had to read this book for my Master's degree in English. I had read the two classics Nineteen-Eighty-Four and Animal Farm before, but I didn't know what to expect from the largely unknown rest of Orwell's novel works. Well, in a nutshell: they're impressive and mature pieces of literature. Keep the Aspidistra Flying is easily my favourite, although the rest of the bunch is a great read, too. Definitely worth picking up!

Diese Romane geben einen tiefen Einblick in das Übel des Imperialismus und in die sozialen Schwierigkeiten im England zwischen den Kriegen. Sehr empfehlenswerte Lektüre für Länder, in denen man sonst nur 'Animal Farm' und '1984' kennt.

A must-have for any Orwellian 26. Juli 2008
Von MarkK - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
George Orwell ranks as one of the great English-language authors of the twentieth century. Born to a middle-class family, he went from Eton to policing in Burma, washing dishes in Paris, and fighting in the Spanish Civil War. The experiences of his life became the inspiration for essays, articles, and nine books, the final two of which - Animal Farm (Everyman's Library (Cloth)) and Nineteen Eighty-Four - are among the greatest novels ever written. This collection, the fruit of nearly two decades of editorial labor by Peter Davison, brings together nearly every word Orwell ever wrote: books, letters, reviews, radio broadcasts, diaries, and much more, as well as correspondence from others. Presented in twenty volumes, they are organized as follows:

NOVELS:
Volume 1: Down and Out in Paris and London
Volume 2: Burmese Days
Volume 3: A Clergyman's Daughter
Volume 4: Keep the Aspidistra Flying
Volume 5: The Road to Wigan Pier
Volume 6: Homage to Catalonia
Volume 7: Coming Up for Air
Volume 8: Animal Farm
Volume 9: Nineteen Eighty-Four

OTHER WRITINGS:
Volume 10: A Kind of Compulsion (1903-36)
Volume 11: Facing Unpleasant Facts (1937-39)
Volume 12: A Patriot After All (1940-41)
Volume 13: All Propaganda is Lies (1941-42)
Volume 14: Keeping Our Little Corner Clean (1942-43)
Volume 15: Two Wasted Years (1943)
Volume 16: I Have Tried to Tell the Truth (1943-44)
Volume 17: I Belong to the Left (1945)
Volume 18: Smothered Under Journalism (1946)
Volume 19: It is What I Think (1947-48)
Volume 20: Our Job is to Make Life Worth Living (1949-50)

The set at whole is a magnificent achievement. With each of the novels Davison has removed the multitude of changes made by successive editors and restored the text to what Orwell had originally written. His other works allow readers to examine Orwell's life and the evolution of his writing, as well as how he mined his life for the details of some of his most memorable passages. Combined they make this set a literary monument to one of the most influential writers in history and a must-have for any fan of Orwell's work.

One World? 12. Mai 2002
Von John Couch - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Since each of Orwell's books have sufficient reviews (raves), I won't bore you with repetition.
I was suprised that this compilation (officially called "The Complete Novels") is not officially available on Amazon.com. If you'd like a single book with "all" of Orwell's novels, it is available via the Amazon.co.UK site. Nothing fancy, just the stories. The only drawback is that the print font is smaller than in most books. For most, this will not be a problem, though.
Be careful: although called "The Complete Novels", it doesn't include "Down and Out in Paris and London" or a couple of his other books. Maybe they weren't considered novels.

Due For A Reassessment? 8. März 2010
Von cvairag - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Is there any doubt? The most important 20th Century man of letters in English - fiction, essays, journalism, belles lettres, name it - the weight, relevance, passion, and scope of his work is unparalleled, unrivaled - and accessible even to schoolchildren - most of whom, in America, read Animal Farm before graduating Junior High.
In this Orwellian nightmare we sojourn, Big Brother is watching us by way of the NSA, Interpol, CIA, Mossad, or whoever, and whatever option from the arsonal of methods at their disposal the intelligence community may choose to employ to make short work of our effete and generally furtive attempts at a semblance of privacy, and the derivative, "doublespeak" (descended or referring to Oceania's "newspeak") is the talk of the town in a day when our public officials do not lie to us but rather "mispeak".
Like Thoreau, whom he much parallels in the heart of that incomparable masterpiece, Homage To Catalonia, he died young (1903-1950) - but packed a staggering measure of life into an ourvre as essential as it is substantial - and real, in the deepest sense of the word.
Another big plus is that these books are solid as and built like Big Ben itself, for many hours of enjoyment and/or insight, hopefully both, by the legendary publishing house, Secker & Warburg, in 1980. By that hour, I would assume, they had come to the realization that Orwell had been their greatest find.
Superb Collection 10. April 2014
Von gibraltar-british-zone - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I was only going to buy "1984" but then I thought that I would like to read "Animal Farm" too. That is when I discovered the existence of this collection of all of Orwell's novels.
Three novels in particular, "A Clergyman's Daughter", "Coming Up For Air" and "Keep The Aspidistra Flying" show in great detail how much of a struggle life could be in the first half of the twentieth century and how easy we have it now in comparison. They made me think of how desperate it must have been to be poor in those days with no welfare state and only charity to keep one from starvation.
"Burmese Days" gives an insight into one of the colonies of the then British Empire and illustrates how we British exploited our overseas territories and their people.
I knew of the plot of "Animal Farm" but still found it a fascinating insight into the life cycle of communism and why it usually fails due to "some animals being more equal than others".
As with "Animal Farm" I also knew of the plot of "1984", having seen the film many years ago and having heard the Bowie songs "1984" and "Big Brother" many times but I still wanted to read the book. I think life described in the book is how it may have been if WW2 had gone the other way. I may now buy the DVD to see how the film compares to the book.
I am pleased that I bought this compilation as I have now read a further four good novels that I may never have read otherwise.
Good edition 21. Juli 2013
Von John Alsop - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

A bunch of classic novels. Some to revisit and some (like Burmese Days) to read for the first time. Effortless, inventive writing - a mix of geat journalism and imagination.
