"George Orwell's would make only a limited claim upon our attention if it were nothing more than a record of personal experiences in the Spanish [Civil W]ar. But it is much more than this. It is a testimony to the nature of modern political life. It is also a demonstration on the part of the author of one of the right ways of confronting that life. ... What he learned from his experiences in Spain of course pained him very much, and it led him to change his course of conduct. But it did not destroy him, it did not, as people say, cut the ground from under him. It did not shatter his faith in what he previously believed, nor weaken his political impulse, nor even change its direction."

- Introduction, Lionel Trilling

Beacon Press, 1952
