'All animals are equal. But some animals are more equal than others.'
Animal Farm is one of Britain's most popular novels - is a brilliant political satire and a powerful and affecting story of revolutions and idealism, power and corruption. Mr Jones of Manor Farm is so lazy and drunken that one day he forgets to feed his livestock.
The ensuing rebellion under the leadership of the pigs Napoleon and Snowball leads to the animals taking over the farm. Vowing to eliminate the terrible inequities of the farmyard, the renamed Animal Farm is organised to benefit all who walk on four legs. But as time passes, the ideals of the rebellion are corrupted, then forgotten.
And something new and unexpected emerges..."Animal Farm" - the history of a revolution that went wrong - is George Orwell's brilliant satire on the corrupting influence of power. "Remains our great satire of the darker face of modern history". (Malcolm Bradbury).
"Animal Farm has seen off all the opposition. It's as valid as today as it was fifty years ago". (Ralph Steadman).
