    A searing account of George Orwell's observations of working-class life in the bleak industrial heartlands of Yorkshire and Lancashire in the 1930s, "The Road to Wigan Pier" is a brilliant and bitter polemic that has lost none of its political impact over time. His graphically unforgettable descriptions of social injustice, cramped slum housing, dangerous mining conditions, squalor, hunger and growing unemployment are written with unblinking honesty, fury and great humanity. It crystallized the ideas that would be found in Orwell's later works and novels, and remains a powerful portrait of poverty, injustice and class divisions in Britain.

    O avtorju

    -George Orwell-

    George Orwell (1903–1950) je pisec, ki ga večina ljudi verjetno najprej poveže z romanom 1984 in s satirično alegorijo Živalska farma. Manj znana so njegova druga dela, med katerimi posebno mesto pripada Orwellovemu knjižnemu prvencu Na robu in na dnu v Parizu in Londonu, s katerim se je zavihtel na literarno prizorišče. Orwell si je vse življenje prizadeval za izboljšanje položaja zatiranih in prezrtih in o tem je brez zadržkov govoril v svojih žurnalističnih in literarnih besedilih. Glasno in pogumno je zagovarjal socialistična načela in obenem nasprotoval tako komunizmu kot izkoriščevalski kapitalistični miselnosti. Socialni angažma in izbran pripovedni slog mu opravičeno podeljujeta status enega najpomembnejših družbenih vizionarjev in pripovednikov 20. stoletja.
