The Road to Wigan Pier The Study of Socialism

Author: George Orwell

Page: 173

View: 959

The first half of The Road to Wigan Pier documents his sociological investigations of the bleak living conditions among the working class in Lancashire and Yorkshire in the industrial north of England before World War II. The second half is a long essay on his middle-class upbringing, and the development of his political conscience, questioning British attitudes towards socialism. Orwell states plainly that he himself is in favour of socialism, but feels it necessary to point out reasons why many people who would benefit from socialism and should logically support it, are in practice likely to be strong opponents.

This collection of social, political and cultural history writings from the 1930s, a decade still too often characterized as that of the 'Auden Generation', brings together important texts of the period and makes accessible some of the key writings of the decade which are either scattered and difficult to locate, or have long been out of print. The anthology offers students and the general reader the opportunity to explore the full range of ideas behind the fiction, poetry, art and music of the 1930s.
