  • "Satirical allegory of the Russian Revolution, particularly directed against Stalin's Russia. Animals on Mr. Jones's farm revolt against their human masters. After their victory they decide to run the farm theirselves on egalitarian principles."

  • "A devasting attack on the pig-headed, gluttonous and avaricious rulers in an imaginary totalitarian state, it illuminates the range of human experience from love to hate, from comedy to tragedy."@en
  • "A farm is taken over by its overworked, mistreated animals. With flaming idealism stirring slogans, they set out to create a paradise of progress, justice and equality."
  • "George Orwell's classic satire of the Russian Revolution is an intimate part of our contemporary culture. It is the account of the bold struggle, initiated by the animals, that transforms Mr. Jones's Manor Farm into Animal Farm--a wholly democratic society built on the credo that All Animals Are Created Equal. Out of their cleverness, the pigs Napoleon, Squealer, and Snowball emerge as leaders of the new community in a subtle evolution that proves disastrous. The climax is the brutal betrayal of the faithful horse Boxer, when totalitarian rule is reestablished with the bloodstained postscript to the founding slogan: But some Animals Are More Equal Than Others. ... -- Description from http://www.barnesandnoble.com (April 19, 2012)."
  • "A farm is taken over by its overworked, mistreated animals. With flaming idealism and stirring slogans, they set out to create a paradise of progress, justice and equality. Thus the stage is set for one of the most telling satiric fables ever penned - a razor-edged fairy tale for grown-ups that records the evolution from revolution against tyranny to a totalitarianism just as terrible."
  • "Orwell's 1945 fable about the power struggles among animals on a farm parallels the situation in Russia at the time as Orwell saw it; the characters include the ruthless pig Stalin, his idealistic Trotsky-like adversary, and the simple, kindly horse who represents the common man."

  • "Tired of all the work, the animals take over the farm."@en
  • "A satire on dictatorship with animals representing political figures of the early twentieth century."@en
  • ""Animal Farm" tells the simple and tragic story of what happens when the oppressed farm animals rebel, drive out Mr. Jones, the farmer, and attempt to rule the farm themselves, on an equal basis. What the animals seem to have aimed at was a utopian sort of communism, where each would work according to his capacity, respecting the needs of others. The venture failed, and "Animal Farm" ended up being a dictatorship of pigs, who were the brightest, and most idle of the animals."@en
  • "Satire on dictatorship."
  • "An allegorical satire of totalitarianism. Written as a fable in which farm animals take control of the farm. The story can be read and understood at many levels."@en
  • "All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others. When the animals take over the farm, they think it is the start of a better life. Their dream is of a world where all animals are equal and all property is shared. But soon the pigs take control and one of them, Napoleon, becomes leader of all the animals. One by one the principles of the revolution are abandoned, until the animals have even less freedom than before. Animal Farm is one of the classic stories of modern English fiction, and is a powerful study of the use and abuse of political power."
  • "A satire in fable form expressed through the animals of Manor Farm."@en
  • "Fueled by Orwell's intense disillusionment with Soviet communism, Animal Farm is a nearly perfect piece of writing, both an engaging story and an allegory that actually works."@en
  • "Tells of a revolution that went wrong when the animals drive Mr Jones off his farm and attempt to run it themselves."

  • "Orwell's classic social commentary profiles the lives of two pigs, Snowball (Lenin) and Napolean (Stalin), as they revolt against their human masters on the farm and then attempt to construct a utopian society for the other animals."@en
  • "Orwell's simple but tragic fable, his classic satire of the Russian Revolution, has become a world-famous classic of English prose. Old Major, the boar, dreams of farms run by animals for animals, with liberty and equality for all. When the animals of Manor Farm, led by the pigs Napoleon and Snowball, drive out Farmer Jones and set up Animal Farm the dream seems to be coming true. But as the pigs become more powerful Old Major's vision turns horribly sour. Their original democratic credo the "All Animals Are Created Equal," and their subsequent brave struggle results sadly in a new totalitarian regime and a new maxim "But Some Animals Are More Equal Than Others.""@en
  • "Orwell's satire of the Russian Revolution chronicles the struggle of the animals of Manor Farm to build a democratic society founded on the creed that "all animals are created equal," the Animal Farm--a social experiment that ends in a totalitarian regime in which some animals are much more "equal" than others."@en

  • "Since its publication fifty years ago, Animal Farm has become one of the most controversial books ever written. It has been translated into seventy languages and sold millions of copies throughout the world. This edition is being published to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of its original U.S. publication. It features 100 full-color and halftone illustrations by world-renowned artist Ralph Steadman. As vital and relevant as it was fifty years ago, Animal Farm is a devastating satire of the Soviet Union by the man V.S. Pritchett called "the conscience of his generation." A fable about an uprising of farm animals against their human masters, it illustrates how new tyranny replaces old in the wake of revolutions and power corrupts even the noblest of causes. This anniversary edition includes Orwell's proposed but unpublished preface to the original edition and his preface to the 1947 Ukranian edition. These appendices evoke the historical context in which Orwell conceived and wrote his classic novel."

When the downtrodden beasts of Manor Farm oust their drunken human master and take over management of the land, all are awash in collectivist zeal. Everyone willingly works overtime, productivity soars, and for one brief, glorious season, every belly is full."@en

  • "Basically a fable, a brilliant satire, frightening view of the future."@en
