The Clergyman's Daughter - George Orwell - A Short Summary & Review

 


A short summary of The Clergyman's Daughter:

Dorothy's "memorial" sojourn to the city.

My favorite George Orwell quote from the book:

"Why not take life as your found it?"


Questions to ponder while reading The Clergyman's Daughter:

Have you ever had to go hungry?

Why do you do what you do?

My review of the book:

A good look into repression, poverty, and individual choices.

A still relevant criticism of how we treat the poor.

I am not sure that I agreed with Dorothy's final choice.
