A new publication of simplified Chinese edition of Animal Farm, the George Orwell classic. In Simplified Chinese. Distributed by Tsai Fong Books, Inc.
From the Publisher
Mr Jones of Manor Farm is so lazy and drunken that one day he
forgets to feed his livestock. The ensuing rebellion under the
leadership of the pigs Napoleon and Wellington leads to the animals
taking over the farm. Vowing to eliminate the terrible inequities
of the farmyard, the renamed Animal Farm is organized to benefit
all who walk on four legs. But as time passes, the ideals of the
rebellion are corrupted, then forgotten. And something new and
Animal Farm - the history of a revolution that went
wrong - is George Orwell's brilliant satire on the corrupting
influence of power.
About the Author
George Orwell was born Eric Hugh Blair in 1903 in Motihari in Bengal, India and later studied at Eton for four years. Orwell was an assistant superintendent with the Indian Imperial Police in Burma. He left the position after five years and then moved to Paris, where he wrote his first two books, Burmese Days and Down and Out In Paris. Orwell then moved to Spain to write but decided to join the United Workers Marxist Party Militia. After being decidedly opposed to communism, Orwell served in the British Home Guard and with the Indian Service of the BBC during World War II. He started writing for the Observer and was literary editor for the Tribune. Soon after he published the world-famous book, Animal Farm, which became a huge success for Orwell. It was then towards the end of his life when Orwell wrote Nineteen Eighty-Four. George Orwell died on January 23, 1950 in London.
