In a timely and radically new reappraisal of George Orwell's fiction, Loraine Saunders reads Orwell's novels as tales of successful emancipation rather than as chronicles of failure. Contending that Orwell's novels have been undervalued as works of art, she offers extensive textual analysis to reveal an author who is in far more control of his prose than has been appreciated. Persuasively demonstrating that Orwell's novels of the 1930s such as A Clergyman's Daughter and Keep the Aspidistra Flying are no less important as literature than Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four, Saunders argues they have been victims of a critical tradition whose practitioners have misunderstood Orwell's narrative style, failed to appreciate Orwell's political stance, and were predisposed to find little merit in Orwell's novels. Saunders devotes significant attention to George Gissing's influence on Orwell, particularly with regard to his representations of women. She also examines Orwell's socialism in the context of the political climate of the 1930s, finding that Orwell, in his successful negotiation of the fine balance between art and propaganda, had much more in common with Charlie Chaplin than with writers like Stephen Spender or W. H. Auden. As a result of Saunders's detailed and accessible analysis, which illuminates how Orwell harmonized allegory with documentary, polyphonic voice with monophonic, and elegy with comedy, Orwell's contributions to the genre of political fiction are finally recognized.

Combining literary, cultural, and political history, and based on extensive archival research, including previously unseen FBI and CIA documents, Archives of Authority argues that cultural politics--specifically America's often covert patronage of the arts--played a highly important role in the transfer of imperial authority from Britain to the United States during a critical period after World War II. Andrew Rubin argues that this transfer reshaped the postwar literary space and he shows how, during this time, new and efficient modes of cultural transmission, replication, and travel--such as radio and rapidly and globally circulated journals--completely transformed the position occupied by the postwar writer and the role of world literature. Rubin demonstrates that the nearly instantaneous translation of texts by George Orwell, Thomas Mann, W. H. Auden, Richard Wright, Mary McCarthy, and Albert Camus, among others, into interrelated journals that were sponsored by organizations such as the CIA's Congress for Cultural Freedom and circulated around the world effectively reshaped writers, critics, and intellectuals into easily recognizable, transnational figures. Their work formed a new canon of world literature that was celebrated in the United States and supposedly represented the best of contemporary thought, while less politically attractive authors were ignored or even demonized. This championing and demonizing of writers occurred in the name of anti-Communism--the new, transatlantic "civilizing mission" through which postwar cultural and literary authority emerged.

This Appreciation Of Orwell S Novels Has Basically Been Intended To Place The Novelist In The Humanistic Perspective. The Humanistic Urges Make Inroads Into The Human Psyche Which Show Up His Assertion Of Faith In The Human Endeavour. The Humanistic Urges Which Emanate From His Literary And Fictional Art, Enable Man To Make A Better Living On The Planet Earth Is The Basic Thrust Which The Book Projects Him As A Novelist Of Humanitarian Concern. Orwell S Portrayal Of Life, In All Its Varied Piquant Colours And Perspectives, Helps To Unroll His Perspicacity Of Incessant Love For The Downtrodden, The Plebeian And Above All For The Suffering Humanity. The Book Systematically Studies The Growth And Evolution Of Humanistic Movements Which Enabled Orwell To Envisage That Revolutions Brought About In Terms Of The Socialistic And The Capitalistic Machinations Merely Annihilate Human Aspirations. It Is An Attempt To Emphasize Orwell S Anguish And Disillusionment Which He Faced During The Thirties. It Reveals His Aversion To The Sinister Pacific Designs Of Society. It Is A Depiction Of Orwell S Incessant Search For Man S Retrieval From The Pacifistic Cloister Of Totalitarian And Dictatorial Domains. The Book Lucidly Elevates Orwell As A Committed Writer, Committed To His Love For The Mankind And His Humanitarian Concern For A Meaningful Existence On The Planet Earth.George Orwell Is Ranked Along With The British Writers Like D.H. Lawrence, E.M. Forster And Graham Greene. What Is Striking Is That It Is A Systematic And Analytical Study Of Orwell S Novels, Essays, Letters, Travelogues And His Other Writings From The Humanistic Perspective. The Book Projects George Orwell Not Only As A Political Satirist Or A Polemicist But Also As A Complete Novelist And Connoisseur Of Varied Nuances Of Literature With His Firm Assertion In Man S Dignity And Human Potentialities (Nineteen Eighty Four; Animal Farm). His Other Novels Like Burmese Days, A Clergyman S Daughter, Coming Up For Air Are An Extended Metaphor Of His Deep And Profound Humanitarian Vision. Orwell S Novels Make For Rays Into The Humanistic Urges And Make Assertion Of Faith In The Inherent Potentialities Of Human Life For A Better Living On The Planet.Infact, The Book Intends To Expose Modern Pretence And Hypocrisy And Thus Brings Into Focus Orwell S Relentless Literary And Fictional Efforts Inculcated Against All Forms Of Evil Showing His Aversion To Both The Socialistic And Capitalistic Patterns Of Society. It Deals With The Realistic Exposition Of The Totalitarian And Dictatorial Powers Which Remain Hidden Inside The Whale. As George Orwell Felt The Smoldering Anguish Of The Thirties, His Concern For A Way Out To The Crisis Social, Moral, Political Even Existential Has Been Shared By Other Novelists Like Graham Greene, Evelyn Waugh, Aldous Huxley, C.P. Snow, Meyers, Rexwarner, John Wain, William Golding And Kingsley Amis.Relevance Of Orwell S Exploration Of The Exquisite Humanistic Urges And His Incessant Humanitarian Concern Is A Transcendental Reality Which Goes On To Remain Undiminished Even With The Turn Of The New Century And The Golden Millennium.
