Animal Farm Summary

Animal Farm by George Orwell

Renowned urban artist Shepard Fairey's new look for Orwell's timeless satire

'All animals are equal. But some animals are more equal than others.'

Mr Jones of Manor Farm is so lazy and drunken that one day he forgets to feed his livestock. The ensuing rebellion under the leadership of the pigs Napoleon and Snowball leads to the animals taking over the farm. Vowing to eliminate the terrible inequities of the farmyard, the renamed Animal Farm is organised to benefit all who walk on four legs. But as time passes, the ideals of the rebellion are corrupted, then forgotten. And something new and unexpected emerges. . .

Animal Farm - the history of a revolution that went wrong - is George Orwell's brilliant satire on the corrupting influence of power.

Animal Farm Reviews

'Animal Farm is a timeless satire on the central tragi-comedy of all politics-that is, the tragi-comedy of corruption by power' Timothy Garton Ash
It is the book for everyone and Everyman, its brightness undimmed after fifty years * Ruth Rendell *
Remains our great satire of the darker face of modern history * Malcolm Bradbury *
Animal Farm has seen off all the opposition. It's as valid today as it was fifty years ago * Ralph Steadman *

About George Orwell

His unique political allegory Animal Farm was published in 1945, and it was this novel, together with the dystopia of Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949), which brought him world-wide fame.
