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. When Animal Farm was first published fifty years
ago, Stalinist Russia was seen as its target.
Today it is devastatingly clear that wherever and whenever
freedom is attacked, under whatever banner, the cutting clarity and
savage comedy of George Orwell's masterpiece has a meaning and
message still ferociously fresh.
