George Orwell’s classic satirical novel Animal Farm is a sharp-edged portrayal of the slippery slope from revolt for equality to tyrannical totalitarianism, as a group of mistreated animals rebel and attempt to take over their farm.
In this timeless fabel, George Orwell’s message is clear and the progressive revolution isn’t all that it seems. As the animals brandish biting slogans and declare equality across the farm, their idealisms slowly merge into a new kind of enslavement as one of the pigs leads them into a dictatorship.
First published in 1945, Animal Farm was an allegory for Stalin’s Soviet Union and Russia’s 1917 revolution. Orwell is known for the ease with which he communicates his opposition to totalitarianism in simple language and striking imagery. The endless cycle of the corruption of power is clear in this allegoric novella and this is a story that will remain with the reader long after they put the book down.
George Orwell’s acclaimed tale has been republished by Read & Co. Classics, complete with the author’s introductory essay ‘Why I Write’. A must-read for book lovers of all ages and an ideal gift for those who enjoyed Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four.
