Revisit Orwell’s classic satire Animal Farm

As ferociously fresh as it was more than a half century ago, this remarkable allegory of a downtrodden society of overworked, mistreated animals and their quest to create a paradise of progress, justice, and equality is one of the most scathing satires ever published. As readers witness the rise and bloody fall of the revolutionary animals, they begin to recognize the seeds of totalitarianism in the most idealistic organization—and in the most charismatic leaders, the souls of the cruelest oppressors.

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!

Descriere

Notă biografică

George Orwell wurde als Eric Arthur Blair am 25. Juni 1903 in Motihari in Britisch-Indien geboren und starb am 21. Januar 1950 in London. Er war ein englischer Schriftsteller und Journalist.

Orwell wuchs als zweites von drei Kindern eines Kolonialbeamten ab seinem zweiten Lebensjahr in England auf. Seine Mutter war mit den Kindern, jedoch ohne den Vater, von Indien nach England zurückgekehrt. Über seinen Internatsbesuch und die damit verbundenen schlechten Erlebnisse schrieb Orwell später das Essay mit dem ironischen Titel "Such, Such Were the Joys". Später ging er auf das renommierte Eton College, für das er aufgrund seiner Leistungen ein Stipendium erhielt.

1924 trat Orwell freiwillig in den Dienst der Indian Imperial Police in Burma. Da er mit deren Methoden jedoch nicht einverstanden war, legte er 1927 sein Amt nieder und widmete sich dem Schreiben. Während seiner Jahre in London und Paris musste er sich mit Hilfsjobs durchschlagen und war zeitweise obdachlos. Seine Erfahrungen verarbeitete er in seinem Romandebüt "Down and Out in Paris and London" 1933.

1936 heiratete Orwell und zog auf Seiten der Marxistischen Arbeiterpartei in den Spanischen Bürgerkrieg. Verwundet kehrte er ein Jahr später wieder zurück und arbeitete als Buchkritiker und Kriegsberichterstatter. Eines seiner wichtigsten Werke, die Fabel "Animal Farm", erschien 1945. Im selben Jahr verstarb seine Frau.

1947 zog Orwell an die Westküste Schottlands in die Einsamkeit, wo er mit der Dystopie "Nineteen Eighty-Four" über den totalitären Überwachungsstaat sein bekanntestes Werk verfasste. 1950 heiratete er, bereits schwer an Tuberkulose erkrankt, in einem Londoner Krankenhaus ein zweites Mal und verstarb dort wenige Monate später, am 21. Januar 1950, im Alter von 46 Jahren.

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.
