Description

"Animal Farm" is one of the greatest modern political fables. Having got rid of their human master, the animals of Manor Farm look forward to a life of freedom and plenty. But as a clever ruthless elite among them takes control, the other animals find themselves hopelessley ensnared in the old way. Orwell's chilling story of the betrayal of idealism through tyranny and corruption is as fresh and relevant as when it was first published in 1945.
