Orwell, George (1903 – 1950)
An important five-page letter, on sleeping rough in London
An exceptional letter of personal anecdote and reportage, Orwell writes a long account of his experience slumming it in Trafalgar Square one weekend during the Depression. Orwell would revise these personal anecdotes and observations for the beginning of his long essay, Hop-Picking, published inThe New Statesman and Nation in October 1931.
