Autor George Orwell

en Limba Engleză Hardback – 7 ian 2021
When the downtrodden animals of Manor Farm overthrow their master, Mr Jones, and take over the farm themselves, they imagine it is the beginning of a life of freedom and equality. But gradually a cunning, ruthless elite among them, masterminded by the pigs Napoleon and Snowball, starts to take control. Soon the other animals discover that they are not all as equal as they thought, and find themselves hopelessly ensnared as one form of tyranny is replaced with another. Orwell's chilling 'fairy story' is a timeless and devastating satire of idealism betrayed by power and corruption.

Recenzii de la cititorii Books Express


Ina Fabian a dat nota:

This book is a metaphoric and hilarious perspective of communism developed in a farm, where each animal represents the government and its leaders, but also people of a community. The story illustrates so well the principles of communism, how it was applied in the animal community and their reaction and mentality about it. There were two sides: those who were afraid to speak up and those who were not smart enough to know the difference between right or wrong. Moreover, I couldn’t resist compare it to real life, how a lider can influence a community and that actions can be told in a way to hide the truth. It was a pleasure reading this book, even though I postponed reading it for years. It’s a quick, fast-paced book, I highly recommend it!

His unique political allegoryAnimal Farmwas published in 1945, and it was this novel, together with the dystopia ofNineteen Eighty-Four(1949), which brought him world-wide fame. His novels and non-fiction includeBurmese Days, Down and Out in Paris and London, The Road to Wigan PierandHomage to Catalonia.

Descriere

Descriere de la o altă ediție sau format:

In 1943, there was an urgent need for Animal Farm. The Soviet Union had become Britain's ally in the war against Nazi Germany, and criticism of Stalin's brutal regime was either censored or discouraged. In any case, many intellectuals on the left still celebrated the Soviet Union, claiming that the terrors of its show trials, summary executions and secret police were either exaggerated or necessary.

But, to Orwell, Stalin was always a "disgusting murderer" and he wanted to remind people of this fact in a powerful and memorable way. But how to do it? A political essay would never reach a wide enough audience; a traditional novel would take too long to write. Orwell hit on the inspired idea of combining the moralism of the traditional 'beast fable' with the satire of Gulliver's Travels.

A group of farmyard animals, led by the pigs, overthrow their human masters. Their revolution is inspired by high ideals: the farm will be run in the interests of its animals with no more slaughtering, plenty of food for all and comfort in retirement. But when Napoleon the pig takes command, he quickly corrupts their principles, creating a new tyranny worse than the old.

Orwell wrote Animal Farm in the middle of the Second World War, but at first no publishers wanted to touch it. It was finally published in August 1945, once the war was over. This little book quickly became a seminal text in the emerging 'cold war' (a phrase that Orwell himself coined).

It also became a site of that conflict itself, suffering various attempts to subvert or change its meaning. Today, Animal Farm remains a powerful fable about the nature of tyranny and corruption which applies for all ages. Our edition also includes the following essays: Shooting an Elephant; Charles Dickens; Inside the Whale; The Frontiers of Art and Propaganda; Literature and Totalitarianism; Fascism and Democracy; Patriots and Revolutionaries; Catastrophic Gradualism; Some Thoughts on the Common Toad; Why I Write; Writers and Leviathan.

Recenzii

This brightly coloured homage to George Orwell's timely allegory is heartbreaking and elegant.Odyr's images of animals casting off their bonds and then living with the results of their revolution arepainterly and evocative, both loose and illuminating.

Odyr's rich brushstrokes do much to enhance the experience of Orwell's brand of satire
Odyr's expressive watercolour palette strikes a visceral note that matches the intensity of Orwell's original text ...He skillfully evokes the mood of the countryside and the plot's shocking violence; the atmosphere and emotions are spot-on

Textul de pe ultima copertă

A farm is taken over by its overworked, mistreated animals. With flaming idealism and stirring slogans, they embark on the creation of a paradise of progress, justice, and equality. Thus the stage is set for one of the most telling satiric fables ever penned -- a razor-edged fairy tale for grown-ups that records the evolution from revolution against tyranny to a totalitarianism just as terrible. When Animal Farm was first published fifty years ago, Stalinist Russia was seen as its target. Today it is devastatingly clear that wherever and whenever freedom is attacked, under whatever banner; the cutting clarity and savage comedy of George Orwell's masterpiece have a meaning and message still ferociously fresh.
