A classic, it is a novel - a wise, compassionate, and illuminating fable for our times.

There is an unusual coup at Mr. Jones’ farm. The mistreated animals led by pigs revolt against their human masters and violently expel them. The animals decide to run the farm by themselves on egalitarian principles. With fiery idealism and stirring slogans they set out to create a paradise of progress. Thus begins the most telling fairy tale ever written-a razor edged satirical allegory that records the obvious journey from revolution against tyranny to a hideous totalitarianism. When Animal farm was first published more than five decades ago it was directed primarily against Stalinist Russia. Today it is unmistakably clear that wherever and whenever freedom is attacked, the sharp comedy of Orwell’s masterpiece has a relevance still excellently fresh.

A wise, compassionate, and illuminating fable for our times.

‘…in Animal Farm’ Orwell left us a lesson about the human contribution to political terror that will always be as up-to-date as next years election.
