Detailed item info

Synopsis
Animal Farm was George Orwell's satirical shot at the then-new totalitarianism of the left. It is so accurate that no one has been able to do it better or more effectively, or even come close. Who can forget "All Animals Are Created Equal, But Some Are More Equal Than Others." By putting wisdom in the mouths of animals, Orwell uses an age-old artifice and proves again how the pen can be mightier than the sword.

With a foreword by Ann Patchett George Orwell's timeless fable - a parable for would-be liberators everywhere, glimpsed through the lens of our own historyAs 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. This new, beautiful paperback edition with a foreword by Ann Patchett features deckled edges and french flaps -- a perfect gift for any occasion."

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
