Orwell: Keep The Aspidistra Flying
Aug 16, 2010
Though a work of fiction, this piece is perhaps the best window into the actual life that Orwell lived through. It captures the many subtle ways that money can pervade and poison "middle-class" life; so much so that the actual poverty of middle class life is revealed.

It is when he gets at you through your sense of decency that he finds you helpless."
