Out of their cleverness, the pigs Napoleon, Squealer, and Snowball emerge as leaders of the new community in a subtle evolution that proves disastrous.

Two of the greatest and most influential works of the twentieth century, together in one edition: 1984, with an introduction by Charlotte Wood, and Animal Farm, with an introduction by Don Watson. George Orwell’s novels about the dangers of tyranny, the corruption of the state and the enslavement of the individual are essential reading. In an era of doublespeak, they remain chillingly prophetic. George Orwell, born Eric Arthur Blair (1903–1950), was a teacher, novelist and journalist. He also served his country including in the Home Guard during the Second World War. He later became the literary editor of the Tribune and wrote for the Observer and Manchester Evening News. The author of nine books, Orwell is best known for the allegorical Animal Farm (1945) and dystopian satire 1984 (1949). They have gone on the become two of the most influential books of the twentieth century. ‘There are no replacements for George Orwell, just as there are no replacements for a Bernard Shaw or a Mark Twain...he pricked, provoked and badgered lazy minds, delighted those who enjoyed watching an original intelligence at work.’ Time
Old Major, the old boar on the Manor Farm, summons the animals on the farm together for a meeting, during which he refers to humans as "enemies" and teaches the animals a revolutionary song called Beasts of England. When Major dies, two young pigs, Snowball and Napoleon, assume command and consider it a duty to prepare for the Rebellion. The animals revolt and drive the drunken and irresponsible farmer Mr. Jones from the farm, renaming it "Animal Farm." They adopt the Seven Commandments of Animalism, the most important of which is, "All animals are equal." Snowball teaches the animals to read and write, while Napoleon educates young puppies on the principles of Animalism. Food is plentiful, and the farm runs smoothly. The pigs elevate themselves to positions of leadership and set aside special food items, ostensibly for their personal health. Animal Farm is an allegorical novella by George Orwell, first published in England on 17 August 1945.
1984 AND ANIMAL FARM GEORGE ORWELL 1984: 1984 is a popular novel authored by British writer George Orwell and published in year 1949. The story of 1984 is set in an imaginary place called Airstrip One. This Airstrip One is actually the Britain. The system of governance in this territory is one oligarchy by inert elites of dictator government. This kind of social-scientific socialism is known by the name of Ingsoc in a language invented and patronized by the totalitarianist government. However, this new invented language is pretty much off the regular or popular one's still its name sounds logically right being simply called newspeak. Airstrip One which is a territory of greater state of Oceania offers similar living conditions (personal and Social) to the one offered by the greater Oceania or rest of the world. Personal thinking has been made a crime and omnipresent government surveillance, thought manipulation, and perpetual war are common traits found in a territory. ANIMAL FARM: A highly claimed novel penned by George Orwell that largely focuses on the Russian revolution and the consequences followed thereafter. Animal Farm's success can be understood by the facts that the book has been placed at the highest spots once and again throughout the later 20th century and also in the early 21st.
Enter Manor Farm, owned by Mr Jones, a lazy farmer who ignores the plight of the animals who toil under his yoke. However, things change dramatically after Major, the prizewinning boar, has a dream, in which all the animals are free. His rousing speeches incite the animals to revolt against oppression. Egged on by the promise of freedom, the animals unite and drive the Joneses out of the farm. Under the tutelage of the pigs, all the farm animals build a world where they are free and equal. Until some become more equal than others. Does the dream of freedom become a nightmare of slavery? George Orwell’s classic, first published in 1945, continues to mirror what unfolds in the theatres of power in society. His criticism of the communist ideal of an equal world takes you through the shining triumphs and terrible failures of the world we live in. PLUS!
