This is the famous and iconic fable of revolutionary farm animals who overthrow their elitist human master only to find themselves subject to a new authority. Determined and steadfast horses Boxer and Clover, the opportunistic pigs Snowball and Napoleon, and the deafening choir of sheep are imagined as only Orwell could with power, humour and an underlying urgency that makes this one of the most prescient warnings ever written.

Description

THE AUTHORATITIVE TEXT

“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others. “

Mr Jones, the owner of Manor Farm, is a lazy drunk. The animals decide to overthrow him in a revolution that will allow them to run the farm, liberating themselves and creating a new life of equality and freedom. But they have underestimated the pigs. Napoleon and Snowball form an elite and take control for themselves, and the tyranny of the farmer is replaced with another kind of control leaving the animals again subject to a ruthless and cruel authority.

Imagined only as Orwell could, this powerful fable is instilled with humour and an underlying urgency that makes this one of the most prescient warnings ever written.

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY CHRISTOPHER HITCHENS
