'Shooting an Elephant' is Orwell's 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 Orwell's unique ability to get to the heart of any subject. A collection of witty and incisive non-fiction, George Orwell's Shooting an Elephant includes an introduction by Jeremy Paxman in Penguin Modern Classics.… (mere)

I read this story aloud to my class of sixth graders -many of whom were of course huge chatterboxes. They were still and respectful the entire time. When I finished, you could hear a pin drop and many - including me - had tears in their eyes. I don't think we read aloud enough to kids - especially at this age. There is still so much value in it.

This is a collection of essays by George Orwell. Very well written and very interesting. ( )

Some essays are quite good: Shooting an Elephant, Bookshop Memories, A Hanging, How the Poor Die, Such, Books vs. Cigarettes, Such Were the Joys, and maybe a few others. Some not so good. Did not care for the Dickens essay but then, I don't care for Dickens. He is assuredly a good writer. His prose is of a different time so it tends to take extra concentration to just grasp his meaning. The title essay was worth the price of the book alone....5,000 kyat (less than $4 US, new) in Yangon, Myanmar. ( )

For å forstå 1984 og Animal Farm er denne boken et must. Den et også nødvendig fort å forstå at vår tid ikke et så mye annerledes enn alle tider.

Meget vel anvendt tid. ( )

Collection d'essais commie dans un style très charmant, rédigés entre 36 et 46. Sur le fond, on y trouve de nombreux prototypes des considérations qui apparaîtront dans 1984. Manifestement le sujet avait macéré en lui longtemps... ( )

A collection of eighteen essays by the author of Nineteen Eighty Four and Animal Farm, etc. these represent the last of his finished work. There is excellent reading here, whether it be the title piece on the English colonial attitude, or his thoughts on books, poetry, cigarettes, a report on a hanging and a death, reflections on Gandhi, a toad, English murder, and other assorted topics, and in the field of the essay this provides fine style as well as stimulating thinking. For the selective reader as well as his established followers.
