Download e-book for kindle: George Orwell and Religion by Michael G. Brennan

By Michael G. Brennan

In his perspective towards faith, George Orwell has been characterized in a variety of phrases: as an agnostic, humanist, secular saint or maybe Christian atheist. Drawing at the complete diversity of his private and non-private writings - from significant works akin to Keep the Aspidistra Flying, 1984 and Down and Out in Paris and London to his shorter journalism and personal letters and journals - George Orwell and Religion is a tremendous reassessment of Orwell's life-long engagement with faith. Exploring Orwell's existence and paintings, Michael Brennan illuminates for the 1st time how this profound engagement with faith trained the intensely humanitarian spirit of his writings.
