The Road to Wigan Pier is a book written by George Orwell and published in 1937. The book is divided into two parts, with the first part describing the living conditions of working-class people in industrial towns in England during the 1930s. Orwell spent time in these areas to conduct research and provide a firsthand account of the poverty, squalor, and unemployment that many people experienced. The first part of the book also explores the political and economic causes of the dire situation faced by working-class people. Orwell argues that capitalism and the pursuit of profit are largely responsible for the plight of the poor, as they create a system that prioritizes the interests of the wealthy over those of the working class. The second part of the book is more personal, as Orwell shares his own experiences of living with working-class people in the north of England.
