Animal Farm
Author(s): George Orwell, D. J. Taylor

A brand-new edition of Orwell’s savage satire of the Soviet Revolution—with an introduction and annotations by acclaimed Orwell scholar D. J. Taylor.

First published in 1945, just as the allied forces had begun to parcel up the post-war world, Orwell’s satire of the Soviet Revolution was instantly acclaimed as a Cold War classic. Set in the English countryside in the early years of the twentieth century, this is the story of a rebellion that fails, carried out by revolutionaries who all too swiftly turn into the thing they were trying to destroy.

This new edition includes an introduction, extensive annotations, an appendix containing original responses to the novel, as well as letters and documents from the period in which Animal Farm was written.

Praise for Animal Farm:
Animal Farm remains our great satire on the darker face of modern history.”
“As lucid as glass and quite as sharp. Animal Farm has the double meaning, the sharp edge, and the lucidity of Swift.”
“A wise, compassionate, and illuminating fable for our 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.”
“Orwell’s satire here is amply broad, cleverly conceived, and delightfully written.”
“The book for everyone and Everyman, its brightness undimmed after fifty years.”
