Synopsis

A searing account of George Orwells 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. But The Road to Wigan Pier is also a very personal work. The author exposes his middle-class upbringing, and the development of his political conscience, questioning British attitudes towards socialism. This essay crystallized the ideas that would be found in Orwells later works and novels, and remains a powerful portrait of poverty, injustice and class divisions in Britain.
