Animal Farm (Penguin English Library)

Author(s): George Orwell


Renowned urban artist Shepard Fairey's new look for Orwell's timeless satire'All animals are equal. But some animals are more equal than others.'Mr Jones of Manor Farm is so lazy and drunken that one day he forgets to feed his livestock. The ensuing rebellion under the leadership of the pigs Napoleon and Snowball leads to the animals taking over the farm. Vowing to eliminate the terrible inequities of the farmyard, the renamed Animal Farm is organised to benefit all who walk on four legs. But as time passes, the ideals of the rebellion are corrupted, then forgotten. And something new and unexpected emerges. . . Animal Farm- the history of a revolution that went wrong - is George Orwell's brilliant satire on the corrupting influence of power.

Product Information

I only read this short, powerful allegory recently and there is still (disturbingly) much that can be gleaned from it. Orwell's many caveats about totalitarian rule, equality and power are delivered in such a way that the message cannot be lost on you. - Charlotte, The Book Grocer
