Product Description

In his story of a downtrodden society of overworked, mistreated animals and their quest to create a paradise of progress, justice, and equality, Orwell gave us one of the most scathing satiric fables ever written. As ferociously fresh as it was more than a half century ago, Animal Farm is a parable about would-be liberators everywhere. As we witness the rise and bloody fall of the revolutionary animals through the lens of our own history, we see the seeds of totalitarianism in the most idealistic organizations; and in our charasmatic leaders, the souls of our cruelest oppressors.

Publisher's Description

With a foreword by Ann Patchett

George Orwell's timeless fable - a parable for would-be liberators everywhere, glimpsed through the lens of our own history

As ferociously fresh as it was more than a half century ago, this remarkable allegory of a downtrodden society of overworked, mistreated animals, and their quest to create a paradise of progress, justice, and equality is one of the most scathing satires ever published. As we witness the rise and bloody fall of the revolutionary animals, we begin to recognize the seeds of totalitarianism in the most idealistic organization; and in our most charismatic leaders, the souls of our cruelest oppressors.

This new , beautiful paperback edition with a foreword by Ann Patchett  features deckled edges and french flaps -- a perfect gift for any occasion.

Editorial Reviews

Animal Farm remains our great satire on the darker face of modern history.” –Malcolm Bradbury

“As lucid as glass and quite as sharp…[Animal Farm] has the double meaning, the sharp edge, and the lucidity of Swift.” –Atlantic Monthly

“A wise, compassionate, and illuminating fable for our times.” –New York Times

“Orwell has worked out his theme with a simplicity, a wit, and a dryness that are close to La Fontaine and Gay, and has written in a prose so plain and spare, so admirably proportioned to his purpose, that Animal Farm even seems very creditable if we compare it with Voltaire and Swift.” –Edmund Wilson, The New Yorker

“Orwell’s satire here is amply broad, cleverly conceived, and delightfully written.” –San Francisco Chronicle

“The book for everyone and Everyman, its brightness undimmed after fifty years.” –Ruth Rendell

With an Introduction by Julian Symons
