    If you had asked me why I had joined the militia I should have answered 'To fight against Fascism' and if you had asked me what I was fighting for I should have answered 'Common decency Sometimes when I get particularly frustrated with that strange idealist in me that chose to work with teenage education I thin

    Always preferred Orwell as a writer of nonfiction and Homage to Catalonia is most certainly up there with the best of it Didn't think much of Animal Farm and haven't even bothered to read 1984 yet which to be honest doesn't really interest me anyway What does interest me a lot is his voice in the real world I think now having read this Down out in Paris London and some of his brilliant essays he's simply a great writer Didn't thi

    3 ½ starsNow after many false starts In my first attempt at reviewing this I began by saying “This is a first rate source for information on the Spanish Civil War” Wrong It really is a very poor source of information on the SCW Because it is on a very personal level and is mostly seen from a very limited and narrow point of view this is really an almost useless book for learning anything historically sign

All the war propaganda all the screaming and lies and hatred comes invariably from people who are not fighting George Orwell is one of my favourite writers 1984 and Animal Farm were game changers for me when I first picked them up at 12 years old and they fostered an interest in politics that would stay with me for the rest of my life Homage to Catalonia never uite affected me in the same way but I decided it was time to do a reread of it as an adult In July I will be visiting Catalonia again my first time doing so as an adult so it seemed especially appropriateOrwell is a great writer but it s just a shame that the material here is not that exciting I found it interesting reading about how his experiences fighting Franco and the fascists during the Spanish Civil War shaped his personal and political beliefs it s just that his extensive detailing of trench life is repetitive and largely uneventfulThe place where Orwell was stationed actually saw very little action He describes a bunch of raggedy boys stood around shivering in the cold smoking any cigarettes they could get hold of and mostly just waiting for something to happen All uiet on the Western Front documents trench warfare the filth the cold the rats and it is a far compelling account Here it gets uite tedious even with Orwell s accessible and conversational styleIt s not just a memoir though He also attempts to explain the history of the conflict and separate out the different groups involved He explains how the Anarchists and Communists were in conflict with one another but were in this case technically on the same side against Franco How well Orwell understands this history is not clear and his explanation of all the political differences is rather convoluted he packs a lot of information into a couple of chapters especially when he turns his attention to the trade unions involved What it is possible to gather from the complex web that Orwell portrays is that the political landscape at this time was a complete mess He often uses his trademark humour to comment on the ridiculousness of the war and it was indeed a ridiculous situation I did some outside reading on the Spanish Civil War and it is easy to see why Orwell s two chapters of background info are lacking It was such a complex conflict that had in part been building for close to a hundred yearsOne of my favourite aspects of the book and in truth probably why I like Orwell uite a lot is that he never really portrays any person as his enemy His enemy remains fascism throughout He speaks highly of those he meets and claims that while his memories of Spain were most evil he had very few bad memories of Spaniards He was as far as I can tell a humanist And in the midst of all that chaos that was no small thingBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube

Page 127 the author states that while watching a fat Russian it was the first time that he had seen a person whose profession was telling lies unless one counts Journalists I wonder what the sublimely brilliant writer of this observation George Orwell would think if he was seeing the accusations of fake news lies that is routinely hurled around today He himself warns against his own bias while writing about his time in Spain Trust nothing is the mantra Indeed I first read Orwell in my late teens I have thought back hard in recent days and I think it was my parents that gave me for what I think must have been my 17th or 18th birthday a compendium of books that contained Animal Farm Burmese Days A Clergyman s Daughter Coming Up for Air Keep the Aspidistra Flying and Nineteen Eighty Four I read Nineteen Eighty Four first and was spellbound Being very much a reader of Sci Fi in my youth this was something utterly different It was beyond great and after several rereads over the years and a good few items as to Orwell s ideas behind it I have considered Nineteen Eighty Four one of greatest piece of English language literature the world has ever seen I read the other books in the compendium and found Animal Farm to be in the classic mold as well So where does Homage to Catalonia fit In my opinion this is an exceptionally important book for those that have been admirers of Orwell s and look to understand why he wrote both Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty Four In Spain there was betrayal of the ideals that he held dear by those he thought he could trust It is not a matter if I or anyone else agreed or disagreed with his political beliefs he had his ideals but watched them literally gunned down The narrative of his time in Spain shows an almost naive outlook as he went to the front feeling a part of a working class fight against fascism to a return to Barcelona to discover all he thought exemplar smashed by his own side of the political spectrum Strangely through all this he could still write about humans being generally decent Should all that Orwell wrote of those days in Spain be lessons for us all in not trusting those whose profession is telling lies I think so Read this book and read the genesis of ideas for the sublime Nineteen Eighty FourJudge a book by its cover Not generally but image of a bidding of farewell to the International Brigades near Barcelona 1938 by Robert Capa is certainly one of the most striking and apt I have seen In passing I would like to thank my great friend Gordon Wilson for his gift of this book on my 60th birthday As I write may his Welsh team do themselves proud at the world cup and may we have a great time at the sevens
