Book Cover of Animal Farm

Animal Farm

by George Orwell

The animals of the Manor Farm lived badly because their farmer Mr. Jones, a mean and always drunk man, exploits them. One day Old Major, the old pig who led the animals, called a meeting of all the animals and told them about a dream that he had the previous night. Orwell wrote it because he wished to destroy what he called the “Soviet myth”. Like Nineteen Eighty-Four, the story is one of the most famous political allegories in the world.
