revisit Orwellas classic satire "Animal Farm"
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 readers witness the rise and bloody fall of the revolutionary animals, they begin to recognize the seeds of totalitarianism in the most idealistic organizationaand in the most charismatic leaders, the souls of the cruelest oppressors.

"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."--The 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
