The Road to Wigan Pier
is Orwell's analysis of what was wrong with Great Britain in the 1930's, with class distinctions more evident than ever, and the growing threat of Fascism not being met by an ineffectual Socialist movement.
There is a previously posted LRF version of The Road to Wigan Pier
on this forum, which closely follows the Gutenberg text.
This current version has been converted directly from the Project Gutenberg text, with the following enhancements:
Proper use of opening and closing quotes, and apostrophes.
Correct use of italics
for emphasised text, instead of CAPITALS.
A lot of fixes to typos, presumably scanning artifacts.
. Italics are rendered on the PRS with additional trailing white space, which can look a bit odd if italicised text is followed by punctuation, e.g., instead of "Is this italics ?
", I have chosen to italicise the subsequent punctuation, e.g., "Is this italics?
", which I think looks better.
I hope you like this version, and please let me know of any corrections.
