This is a classic tale of humanity awash in totalitarianism. 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. First published during
the epoch of Stalinist Russia, today it is clear that wherever and
whenever freedom is attacked, and under whatever banner, the
cutting clarity and savage comedy of Orwell's masterpiece is a
message still ferociously fresh.
