'It is the history of a revolution that went wrong - and of the excellent excuses that were forthcoming at every step for the perversion of the original doctrine', wrote Orwell for the first edition of Animal Farm in 1945. Orwell wrote it at the end of 1943, but it almost remained unpublished. Its savage attack on Stalin, at that time Britain's ally, led to it being refused by publisher after publisher. Orwell's simple, tragic fable, telling what happens when the animals drive out Mr Jones and attempt to run the farm themselves, has since become a world-famous classic.

THE AUTHORITATIVE TEXT

From Our Editors

 

When George Orwell wrote this extraordinary classic in 1943, he was almost unable to find a publisher. Animal Farm is a broadly allegorical criticism of Stalin's regime, which at the time was one of Britain's allies, so no publisher would touch it. This tragic satire is literally about what happens when the animals drive Mr. Jones from the farm, rightly believing that if anyone should control their destinies it should be them. But their first noble doctrine gradually deteriorates under the reaching fingers of greed and corruption and their dream gradually becomes a horrific nightmare.
