Product description

Review

"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."--The 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

About the Author

George Orwell (pseudonym for Eric Blair [1903-50]) was born in Bengal and educated at Eton; after service with the Indian Imperial Police in Burma, he returned to Europe to earn his living penning novels and essays. He was essentially a political writer who focused his attention on his own times, a man of intense feelings and intense hates. An opponent of totalitarianism, he served in the Loyalist forces in the Spanish Civil War. Besides his classic Animal Farm, his works include a novel based on his experiences as a colonial policeman, Burmese Days, two firsthand studies of poverty, Down and Out in Paris and London and The Road to Wigan Pier, an account of his experiences in the Spanish Civil War, Homage to Catalonia; and the extraordinary novel of political prophecy whose title became part of our language, 1984.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read book!
Reviewed in India on 31 August 2018
'The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.'
Animal Farm is an amazing work by George Orwell. In this, he makes use of his stupefying imagination and prowess to exploit his wit to throw light on the tragedy of modern history. The book deals with the uprising of animals against humans eventually becoming the one to the extent that it becomes difficult to differentiate between them. The book is a satire on the hegemony of the humans first, and then, of the pigs. A short book with loads of intellectual food to feed your brains!
