One of a series of fiction titles for schools. In Orwell’s classic story the animals, led by the pigs’ Napoleon and Snowball, drive out Farmer Jones and set up an Animals’ Republic in which all are to be free and equal. But the saviors turn out to be just as greedy, vain, and oppressive.
“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”George Orwell’s modern fable on the way power corrupts is as apt as ever in the twenty-first century.
QUOTES FROM ANIMAL FARM
“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”
“The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.”
