About the author:

George Orwell was the pen name used by British author and journalist Eric Arthur Blair. During most of his professional life time Orwell was best known for his journalism, both in the British press and in books such as Homage to Catalonia, describing his activities during the Spanish Civil War, and Down and Out in Paris and London, describing a period of poverty in these cities. Orwell is best remembered today for two of his novels, Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four( written from the from the site http://etext.library.adelaide.edu.au/o/orwell/george/)

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.( http://us.penguingroup.com/nf/Book/BookDisplay/0,,0_97804515 26342,00.html)

One thought on “Animal Farm by George Orwell

  1. Animal Farm is an interesting book…Doing the guess work on which animal represents whom was interesting enough…. verifying them with wiki page entry or something is another joy.. 🙂 I enjoy reading “beasts of england” in Animal Farm especially….. Its kind of surprising for me that you did not mention the Wiki link…not that its mandatory…but….perhaps because i got so used to reading wiki links via blogs….. 🙂
