This is the second volume of a two part examination of Orwell’s development as a writer. This volume covers the years from the publication of Down and Out in Paris and London in January of 1933, to his departure for Spain in June of 1937. This is not a biography in the ordinary sense, although it does incorporate biographical information. It is, rather, an examination of the experiences and influences that made him who he was and led him to write what he did.
