About this book

This bold new reading of Orwell's work focuses upon his representation of communities and the myths that shape them. It analyzes his interpretations of class, gender and nationality within the context of the period. The book uses a range of texts to argue that Orwell attempted to integrate 'traditional' communal identities with socialist politics.

About the authors

BEN CLARKE has taught at Leader University, Taiwan and the University of Derby, UK. He has written on Orwell, utopian writing, and Taiwan, and is currently working on a literary history of the Nineteen-Thirties.

Reviews

'Orwell in Context is a must for every researcher, critic and aficionado of Orwell's work. It provides not only a stimulating and sometimes controversial close-reading of Orwell's fictional and journalistic work but also an insightful social history of Britain in the 1930s and 1940s.' - Kritikon Litterarum

'Ben Clarke's lucid and diligently researched Orwell in Context...provides challenging and persuasive readings of Orwell's work in its social and historical context. As such, Orwell in Context not only deserves a splace in every research library but also on the shelves of every admirer of Orwell's work.' - Christine Berberich, Modernism/Modernity
