  • "When George Orwell went to the north of England in the thirties to find out how industrial workers lived, he not only observed but shared their experience. He stayed in dreary lodgings and subsisted on the scant, cheerless diet of the poor. He went down into the coal mines and walked crouching, as the miners did, from one to three miles, to the coal face which was a passage too low to stand up in. The essence of this book is the searing, yet beautiful report of what Orwell found in the coal mine--"Wigan Pier"--and the unforgettable and important answers that were there. -from back cover."@en
  • "In the 1930s Orwell was sent by a socialist book club to investigate the appalling mass unemployment in the industrial north of England. He went beyond his assignment to investigate the employed as well-"to see the most typical section of the English working class." Foreword by Victor Gollancz."@en
  • "An unflinching look at unemployment and life among the working classes in Britain during the Great Depression, <The Road to Wigan Pier</ offers an in-depth examination of socio-economic conditions in the coal-mining communities of England's industrial areas, including detailed analysis of workers' wages, living conditions, and working environments.</ Orwell was profoundly influenced by his experiences while researching <The Road to Wigan Pier</ and the contrasts with his own comfortable middle-class upbringing; his reactions to working and living conditions and thoughts on how these would be improved under socialism are detailed in the second half of the book.</ HarperPerennial Classics brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms.
