內容簡介


「歐威爾不僅僅是個好作家,因為他對於真相的熱情,人類直到現世都非常需要他」─英國星期日泰晤士報

「歐威爾是二十世紀最偉大的作家」─英國觀察家報

喬治‧歐威爾是英國知名作家,曾任職警察、記者,成長、生活背景讓他看到極權主義的恐怖以及人性的黑暗面,作品中有濃濃反極權主義的思想,代表作為《一九八四》和《動物農莊》,歐威爾的重要性不僅限於文學界,對於政治、文化界都有很大的影響。

本書從歐威爾的書籍、評論、信件、戰時日記等作品中,以「真相」為主題,選出具有代表性的句子,從討論各人對於誠實的道德倫理,到探討言論自由和政治宣傳中的真實等。歐威爾的思想跨越時間,這些名句就算是現在社會都還是有讓讀者一針見血的體悟,歐威爾的作品可說是人類社會的傳世經典。

Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two equals four. If that is granted, all else follows.'

This selection of George Orwell’s writing, from both his novels and non-fiction, gathers together his thoughts on the subject of truth. It ranges from discussion of personal honesty and morality, to freedom of speech and political propaganda. Orwell’s unique clarity of thought and illuminating scepticism provide the perfect defence against our post-truth world of fake news and confusion.

'The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it.'


Includes an introduction by Alan Johnson and passages from Burmese Days, The Road to Wigan Pier, Coming Up for Air, The Lion and the Unicorn, Animal Farm, Nineteen Eighty-Four, Orwell’s letters, war-time diary, criticism and essays including ‘Fascism and Democracy’, ‘Culture and Democracy’, ‘Looking Back on the Spanish War’, ‘As I Please’, ‘Notes on Nationalism’, ‘The Prevention of Literature’, ‘Politics and the English Language’ and ‘Why I Write’.
