Orwell, George: The Road to Wigan Pier. v1.1. 15 June 2009

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.
"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.

Hi ShellShock,

I think you forgot to attach the book. Can you upload it, please?

Thanks.

This is the second time I've done this!

Thanks for letting me know.

Thanks, ShellShock.

I actually think that there is something wrong somewhere because I've seen other upload threads where there actually is no upload. Actually, there is, but it is a file called attach.html (or something similar), and when I look at the file, it is the copyright notice displayed just on top of the attached files (the one that says "This work is in the Canadian public domain..."). I meant to notify one of the admins. I may do that later today.

Thanks again.
