Shooting an Elephant is Orwells searing and painfully honest account of his experience as a police officer in imperial Burma killing an escaped elephant in front of a crowd solely to avoid looking a fool. The other masterly essays in this collection include classics such as My Country Right or Left, How the Poor Die and Such, Such were the Joys, his memoir of the horrors of public school, as well as discussions of Shakespeare, sleeping rough, boys weeklies and a spirited defence of English cooking. Opinionated, uncompromising, provocative and hugely entertaining, all show Orwells unique ability to get to the heart of any subject. A collection of witty and incisive non-fiction, George Orwells Shooting an Elephant includes an introduction by Jeremy Paxman in Penguin Modern Classics.
