Book Review: Homage to Catalonia

Homage to Catalonia

by George Orwell

Review by Claude

A very thorough guide from one of the literary world’s greatest titans of the 20th century. It narrates the human toll of this ‘forgotten war’ in a captivating, yet precise way that only Orwell could. This book provides the reader with a deeply personal account of the author’s time as a soldier, a period of his life which would radically influence his later works. Lovers of Orwell will rejoice at this historical account, charged with the hopes and dreams of a nation in crisis and a lost generation.
