In an attempt to “set things right”, the animals in a farm rebel against their human masters and begin governing themselves on the new Animal Farm in this satire on communism by George Orwell.
Summary of the Book
Inspired by a long-forgotten ballad, two young pigs decide to exact vengeance on their corrupt human rulers. They lead the other farm animals in an epic battle as they oust the farmer and his family, seizing control over the farm. They declare that there will be no more meaningless labour, and that all animals are created equal. However, their “government” soon begins to fall apart as they begin displaying their mistrust for one another. In their attempts to be different from their human masters, they begin to slowly follow their edicts, and slowly their ideals shift. In Animal Farm, there is only one thing that you must remember. All animals are created equal, but some animals are more equal than others.
About George Orwell
Eric Arthur Blair, better known as George Orwell, was an English writer born in Burma. He is best remembered for his essays, his diaries, his novels, including 1984 and Down and Out in Paris and London.
Orwell is considered to be a pioneering novelist and thinker, responsible for the rise of the dystopian literature genre. It is, therefore, no small achievement that the word Orwellian has become a synonym for totalitarian regimes and their ideals.
