GEORGE WOODCOCK
The Writer and Politics


Freedom Press has re-issued as a paperback, George Woodcock’s collection of essays The Writer and Politics (first published by the Porcupine Press in 1948), of which the author writes in his introduction:

“It recognises the paramount need for a change in social structure, in order to promote the freedom of individual development. … This book … embraces a social approach to literature and thought, which takes into account the society where writers work and live. Its attitude is, however, very different from that of the soial literature of the 1930s which was dominated by the political ideology of Marxism.”

The volume includes essays on Alexander Herzen, Franz Kafka, Arthur Koestler, Peter Kropotkin, Pierre-Joseph Proudhon, Ignazio Silone and George Orwell.

248pp.
