    You are missing the context on the zen-egg stuff… he was trying to forget about spanish civil war after publishing Homage to Catalonia!! He was in a post-traumatic sindrome, and eggs are a methaphore of balls (or guts) that he needed to get over with it. When he’ll have enough days with both eggs instead of just one, he’ll start to talk about politics and philosophy and the relation of individuals and society.

    Or maybe he was just hungry.

    Isn’t Orwell currently in the process of writing Coming Up for Air?

    Was Homage to Catalonia (published in early 1938) a flop?

    Normal service is resumed. To be fair if he is in the process of writing books the diary is only going to be a short, simple affair I would think.

  5. Panos says:

    Lol, Orwel really does love eggs.

  6. The Ridger says:

    Yes, he is writing Coming Up for Air.

  7. Josh says:

    From wikipedia on Coming Up For Air

    The themes of the book are nostalgia, the folly of trying to go back and recapture past glories and the easy way the dreams and aspirations of one’s youth can be smothered by the humdrum routine of work, marriage and getting old.

    W00t! Two Eggs. An exceptionally good day. I think he should get more chickens.

  9. D says:

    Produced by his chickens, or eaten by him at breakfast? Or both?

  10. Working title: ‘Going Out For Eggs’.

  11. margot says:

    Mistake. It WAS coming up for air

  12. margot says:

    JamesonLewis3rd – I answered you in yesterday’s comments.

    Eggs come and eggs go,
    Always a disappointment:
    Three might satisfy

  14. Looks like he’s still under the weather, despite his more hopeful post of yesterday.
