Resumo:

"Scenes from an Afterlife: The Legacy of George Orwell surveys the posthumous history of the most controversial, and arguably the most important, political writer of the twentieth century. Building on Rodden's first major study of Orwell's complex and contested legacy, this sequel presents new scenes of his posthumous reception and influence. It is a book about a life that became a legend." "George Orwell's afterlife is a unique tale of contemporary fame, the implausible yet true story of a literary second act that knows no comparison. More than a half-century after his death, Orwell's name still wields a rhetorical and political force sufficient to stimulate public argument. In addressing the intellectual bequest and cultural impact of Orwell, Scenes from an Afterlife provides a significant contribution to contemporary cultural history."--BOOK JACKET.
