"Schindler not only demonstrates the fundamental connections between Balthasar and the wider philosophical project of this century; he also demonstrates the continuing power of Balthasar's theology - as a human encounter with the glory of God - to shape culture and community."--BOOK JACKET.

Escrita con su mejor vena satírica, George Orwell nos cuenta en esta novela la historia de Gordon Comstock, un poeta frustrado que un buen día decide combatir el tentador poder del dinero viviendo en las más míseras condiciones. Gordon Comstock es un poeta frustrado dispuesto a llevar sus ideales hasta las últimas consecuencias. Rechaza un lucrativo trabajo como publicista para aceptar un humilde puesto en una destartalada librería de Londres que apenas le da para comer. Eso sí, le permite ser fiel a sus principios. Su firme determinación es alejarse de la seguridad simbolizada por la flor de la aspidistra, presente en todas las ventanas de los hogares de clase media británicos y emblema de una existencia desahogada. Gordon prefiere pasar las noches temblando de frío en su habitación alquilada mientras intenta escribir, ensimismado en su sueño de noble pobreza. Pero la exclusión y la marginación acabarán por darle una importantelección de vida: «Los principios están muy bien, siempre que no haya que ponerlos en práctica.» La crítica dijo... «Literatura de primera. Comparable a Voltaire y a Swift.» The New York
