WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY RONALD CARTER SERIES EDITORS RONALD CARTER AND JOHN McRAE

Penguin Student Editions have been specifically designed for readers who are studying a text in detail. They include a helpful introduction and explanatory notes, character sketches, a text summary, a chronology, a selection of questions and topics for discussion and analysis, as well as suggestions for further reading.

When the downtrodden animals of Manor Farm overthrow their master Mr Jones and take over the farm themselves, they imagine it is the beginning of a life of freedom and equality. But gradually a cunning, ruthless elite among them, masterminded by the pigs Napoleon and Snowball, starts to take control. Soon the other animals discover that they are not all as equal as they thought, and find themselves hopelessly ensnared as one form of tyranny is replaced with another. Orwell’s chilling ‘fairy story’ is a timeless and devastating satire of idealism betrayed by power and corruption.

Industry 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
