Animal Farm
Animal Farm: A Fairy Story
Animal Farm
Russell Baker, George Orwell
George Orwell's timeless fableā€”a parable for would-be liberators everywhere, glimpsed through the lens of our own history.As ferociously fresh as it was more than a half century ago, this remarkable allegory of a downtrodden society of overworked, mistreated animals, and their quest to create a paradise of progress, justice, and equality is one of the most scathing satires ever published. As we witness the rise and bloody fall of the revolutionary animals, we begin to recognize the seeds of totalitarianism in the most idealistic organization; and in our most charismatic leaders, the souls of our cruelest oppressors.With a foreword by Ann Patchett
