Publisher Description

'The Seven Commandments Whatever goes upon two legs is an enemy. Whatever goes upon four legs, or has wings, is a friend. No animal shall wear clothes. No animal shall drink alcohol. No animal shall kill any other animal. All animals are equal. All animals are equal but some are more equal than others.'

Author Biography

Eric Arthur Blair (1903-1950), better known by his pen-name, George Orwell, was born in India, where his father worked for the Civil Service. An author and journalist, Orwell was one of the most prominent and influential figures in twentieth-century literature. His unique political allegory Animal Farm was published in 1945, and it was this novel, together with the dystopia of Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949), which brought him world-wide fame. All his novels and non-fiction, including Burmese Days (1934), Down and Out in Paris and London (1933), The Road to Wigan Pier (1937) and Homage to Catalonia (1938) are published in Penguin Modern Classics.

Review

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
