Read full description of the books Да здравствует фикус!:

Главный герой романа - Гордон Комсток, представитель выродившейся дворянской фамилии. Гордон, писатель-неудачник, испытывает презрение к деньгам, достатку, буржуазности и фикусу на окне, как символу всего этого. Он служит в рекламном агентстве "Новый Альбион" и обнаруживает у себя настоящий талант к сочинению слоганов, но реклама внушает ему отвращение и представляется пошлой карикатурой на возвышенное художественное творчество. Герой намеренно отказывается от денежной работы, считая ее недостойной. Он хочет посвятить себя литературе, но творчество для него несовместимо с буржуазным образом жизни - семьей, детьми и фикусом на окне. Однако и гордая бедность не способствует ни вдохновению, ни личному счастью. В своих неудачах начинающий писатель винит одного врага - деньги. Он продолжает упрямо придерживаться своих правил - отказывается от помощи друзей, экономит на всем, но все напрасно - депрессия нарастает, а плоды собственного литературного творчества внушают отвращение…
Что же спасет героя от гибели? Восторжествует ли скромный цветок, а с ним и простые человеческие радости?
Забавный сатирический роман Джорджа Оруэлла, написанный в середине прошлого века, остается смешным, актуальным и очень познавательным и в начале нынешнего столетия.
Рекомендуется для прочтения начинающим авторам…

Read information about the author

Ebook Да здравствует фикус! read Online! Eric Arthur Blair, better known by his pen name George Orwell, was an English author and journalist. His work is marked by keen intelligence and wit, a profound awareness of social injustice, an intense opposition to totalitarianism, a passion for clarity in language, and a belief in democratic socialism.

In addition to his literary career Orwell served as a a police officer with the Indian Imperial Police in Burma from 1922-1927 and fought with the Republicans in the Spanish Civil War from 1936-1937. Orwell was severely wounded when he was shot through his throat. Later the organization that he had joined when he joined the Republican cause,The Workers Party of Marxist Unification (POUM), was painted by the pro-Soviet Communists as a Trotskyist organization (Trotsky was Joseph Stalin's enemy) and disbanded. Orwell and his wife were accused of "rabid Trotskyism" and tried in absentia in Barcelona, along with other leaders of the POUM, in 1938. However by then they had escaped from Spain and returned to England.

Between 1941 and 1943, Orwell worked on propaganda for the BBC. In 1943, he became literary editor of the Tribune, a weekly left-wing magazine. He was a prolific polemical journalist, article writer, literary critic, reviewer, poet and writer of fiction, and, considered perhaps the twentieth century's best chronicler of English culture.

Orwell is best known for the dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four (published in 1949) and the satirical novella Animal Farm (1945) — they have together sold more copies than any two books by any other twentieth-century author. His 1938 book Homage to Catalonia, an account of his experiences as a volunteer on the Republican side during the Spanish Civil War, together with numerous essays on politics, literature, language, and culture, are widely acclaimed.

Orwell's influence on contemporary culture, popular and political, continues decades after his death. Several of his neologisms, along with the term "Orwellian" — now a byword for any oppressive or manipulative social phenomenon opposed to a free society — have entered the vernacular.
