Inhaltsangabe: George Orwell was asked to write a biography of George Gissing, having hailed him as "perhaps the best novelist England has produced." He had to refuse, and instead of a book like this one, Orwell wrote a novel, 1984. His closeness to Gissing can help draw the map of English literature from 1880 to 1950. Orwell was born in the year that Gissing died, 1903. Both of them lived 46 years and died of lung disease. It is likely that Orwell borrowed the first name of his pseudonym from Gissing. Orwell, though, chose to live among the poor to begin a lifelong commitment to leftist politics. Gissing became poor by bad luck and bad judgement; he came to believe that political solutions were unlikely to abolish human misery, and declared that the great subject of his novels was the situation of educated people with "not enough money." Paul Delany has read Gissing's 22 novels, and his other works, with a fine biographer's eye. Gissing was a neurotic writer, and everything in his later life was determined by the twin disasters of his imprisonment and his marriage to Nell Harrison. Prison he concealed altogether. It could be argued that Victorian society rested on hypocrisy, requiring everyone to lie about their desires. But the major figures in Gissing's novels are almost always bad liars. In his own case a mistake in youth created daily misery that he could never shake off. Yet Gissing the novelist gives us better than anyone the flavor of London in the 1880s and 1890s: a compound of wet streets, fog, coal-smoke, narrow horizons, and an imagination equal to it all. In Paul Delany he has found the perfect biographer.

Buchbeschreibung Buchzustand: New. George Gissing, hailed by George Orwell as 'perhaps the best novelist England has produced', became poor by bad luck and bad judgement. He came to believe that political solutions were unlikely to abolish human misery, and declared that the great subject of his novels was the situation of educated people with 'not enough money'. Gissing was a neurotic writer, and everything in his later life was determined by the twin disasters of his imprisonment and his marriage to Nell Harrison. The novelist gives us better than anyone the flavour of London in the 1880s and 1890s: a compound of wet streets, fog, coal-smoke, narrow horizons and an imagination equal to it all. In Delany he has found the perfect biographer. This biography does an excellent job of rehabilitating his reputation, showing how he overcame a disastrous marriage to a prostitute and imprisonment for theft to produce some of the Victorian era's most socially aware novels. DAILY TELEGRAPH. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 1871

Buchbeschreibung Phoenix, 2009 9780753825730, 2009. Soft cover. Buchzustand: New. NEW paperback. 444 pages. B/w photographs. A much-praised account of the life of George Gissing, best known now, perhaps, as the author of New Grub Street, a novel set in the literary circles of late Victorian London. He is almost unknown now, and probably under-rated even in his day. George Orwell called him "perhaps the best novelist England has produced". This biography, too, has been much praised. The Independent wrote "Gissing was awfully short of blessings in his life, but he is now very blessed in getting the kind of canny, sensitive and clued-up biographer he (and his fiction) have long been crying out for".
