The Lion and the Unicorn: Socialism and the English Genius (Penguin Modern Classics) Kindle Edition
George Orwell's moving reflections on the English character and his passionate belief in the need for political change.
The Lion and the Unicorn was written in London during the worst period of the blitz. It is vintage Orwell, a dynamic outline of his belief in socialism, patriotism and an English revolution. His fullest political statement, it has been described as 'one of the most moving and incisive portraits of the English character' and is as relevant now as it ever has been.

From the Back Cover
'England is the most class-ridden country under the sun. It is a land of snobbery and privilege, ruled largely by the old and the silly'
This is the most powerful portrait of England - and why it must change - ever written. Composed as bombs were falling over London at the height of the blitz, it remains as radical, witty and crucial today as it was in 1941.
'One of the most famous essays in the English language' Spectator
'Orwell's idea of a better England is stirring again today' Guardian
'Nowadays Orwell is, more than ever, a beacon of light in a darkening world' Financial Times--This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
