George Orwell, qui a participé à la guerre civile espagnole en tant que combattant, a écrit en 1942 ces quelques phrases qui annoncent presque mot pour mot le monde fictif de son célèbre roman, 1984, publié en 1949 : " Je me rappelle avoir dit un jour à Arthur Koestler "L histoire s'est arrêtée en 1936", ce à quoi il a immédiatement acquiescé d'un hochement de tête. Nous pensions tous les deux au totalitarisme en général, mais plus particulièrement à la guerre civile espagnole…

George Orwell - Gli anni dell'«Observer»

Questo libro raccoglie tutti gli articoli e le recensioni scritti da Orwell per l'"Observer" dal 1942 al 1949. I cento pezzi esatti che compongono questa raccolta offrono il ritratto di un Orwell di grande rigore morale, ma anche di un mondo non così lontano in cui la storia era ancora cronaca e la letteratura non era ancora storia. Tristi, arrabbiati, a volte severi, spesso divertenti, questi articoli testimoniano l'associazione di alti ideali e dolorosa consapevolezza che veniva a incarnarsi nella figura di Orwell. "Se ti guardi dentro, chi sei, don Chisciotte o Sancho Panza?", una volta aveva domandato. "Quasi sicuramente entrambi." Era proprio la contraddizione tra questi due aspetti, la dialettica tra idealismo e cinismo, a conferire a Orwell quella peculiare energia che lo ha reso uno dei più grandi scrittori del Novecento.
