Historical wars settle on an accepted narrative, for better or worse. Many of his essays and diary entries are devoted to nutting out the motives behind propaganda and political decisions, or measuring the morale of a hoodwinked public. The hero, a young airman, is accused of bombing and sinking a British submarine.

So, as always, Orwell makes me think about stuff, whether I agree with him or not. Well, actually, I wouldn't, because it would mean I became hugely important. It is an enormous, deliberately farcical story about some semi-imbecile Jews, first in the Greek island of Cephalonia and later in Switzerland. He is writing for a general audience, and not trying to put himself above his audience. He can stand inside him as well as outside him and realize that he is heroic as well as childish, competent as well as silly.

After the death of his first wife Eileen O'ShaughnessyOrwell became desperately lonely. Of course we all get lost soon enough, unless we are willing to put in the work. Spain really initiated him, convincing him not only of the evil of totalitarian Communism, but also of the justice and need for libertarian socialism. All of our items are checked for quality before they go on sale and we like to think that our prices mean that no item is beyond your budget. Ah, even with math books, it is possible to guide the general reader too, in short stages. These war years were the high point of Orwell's political involvement.
