This edition features George Orwell's best known novels – 1984 and Animal Farm – with an introduction by Christopher Hitchens. In 1984, London is a grim city where Big Brother is always watching you and the Thought Police can practically read your mind. Winston Smith joins a secret revolutionary organization called The Brotherhood, dedicated to the destruction of the Party. Together with his beloved Julia, he hazards his life in a deadly match against the powers that be. Animal Farm is Orwell's classic satire of the Russian Revolution -- an 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. But are they?

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.
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.
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!

George Orwell holds a unique place in contemporary English literature. He used facts and his own observation and when there was no actual reporting to be done, invention took over, as in Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four, and his clear vision, realistic deduction and profound understanding of human behaviour enabled him to reach the inner recesses of the reader's mind and startle him to reflection and self-examination. He said that one of his motives for writing was a 'desire to see things as they are, to find true facts and store them up for the use of posterity... In a peaceful age I might have written ornate or merely descriptive books... When I sit down to write a book, I do not say to myself "I am going to produce a work of art." I write it because there is some lie I want to expose, some fact to which I want to draw attention, and my initial intention is to get a hearing.'
