Orwell, George: A Clergyman's Daughter. v1.1. 8 June 2009
In A Clergyman's Daughter Orwell tells the story of Dorothy Hare, the clergyman's daughter of the title, whose life is turned upside-down when she suffers an attack of amnesia, and she is plunged into the underworld of the destitute in 1930's London--sleeping rough in Tralfalgar Square, and hop-picking for measly wages in Kent. But liberated from the strictures of her upbringing, of which she has little memory, she finds a new freedom despite the hardships of very little money.
There is a previously posted LRF version of A Clergyman's Daughter 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:
Replaced "--" with em-dashes.
Proper use of opening and closing quotes, and apostrophes.
Correct use of italics for emphasised text, instead of CAPITALS.
"Smart" italics. 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.
