Animal Farm Summary


Animal Farm: A Fairy Story by George Orwell

Having got rid of their human master, the animals of Manor Farm look forward to a life of freedom and plenty. But as a clever, ruthless elite among them takes control, the other animals find themselves hopelessly ensnared in the old ways. Orwell's chilling story of the betrayal of idealism through tyranny and corruption, is as fresh and relevant today as when it was first published in 1945.

Animal Farm 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
