Product Description

Animal Farm is the most famous by far of all twentieth-century political allegories, and its account of a group of barnyard animals who revolt against their vicious human master and then submit to a tyranny erected by their own kind can fairly be said to have become a universal drama for our time. Taking as his starting point the betrayed promise of the Russian Revolutioni, Orwell lays out a vision which, in its bitter wisdom, gives us the clearest understanding we possess of the possoble consequences of our social and political acts.

Publisher's Description

 

Animal Farm is the most famous by far of all twentieth-century political allegories. Its account of a group of barnyard animals who revolt against their vicious human master, only to submit to a tyranny erected by their own kind, can fairly be said to have become a universal drama. Orwell is one of the very few modern satirists comparable to Jonathan Swift in power, artistry, and moral authority; in animal farm his spare prose and the logic of his dark comedy brilliantly highlight his stark message.

 

Taking as his starting point the betrayed promise of the Russian Revolution, Orwell lays out a vision that, in its bitter wisdom, gives us the clearest understanding we possess of the possible consequences of our social and political acts.

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
