Burmese Days was Orwell's first novel, and was issued in 1934. The story is based on his own experiences as a police officer in Burma. Set in the dying days of the Raj, it depicts the harshness and darker side of colonial rule. At its centre is John Flory, a lone individual hopelessly trapped in a vast political system; themes which set the agenda for much of his writing.
