"Animal Farm", by George Orwell - author of 1984, one of Britain's most popular novels - is a brilliant political satire and a powerful and affecting story of revolutions and idealism, power and corruption. 'All animals are equal. But some animals are more equal than others.' 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 Snowball leads to the animals taking over the farm. Vowing to eliminate the terrible inequities of the farmyard, the renamed Animal Farm is organised 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 unexpected emerges..."Animal Farm" - the history of a revolution that went wrong - is George Orwell's brilliant satire on the corrupting influence of power. "Remains our great satire of the darker face of modern history". (Malcolm Bradbury). "Animal Farm has seen off all the opposition. It's as valid as today as it was fifty years ago". (Ralph Steadman).George Orwell (Eric Arthur Blair) was an accomplished social, political and literary commentator and essayist known for his non-fiction works "The Road to Wigan Pier" and "Homage to Catalonia". His most famous novels, "Animal Farm" and 1984 have influenced a generation of twentieth century political satirists and dystopian novelists. "Animal Farm" received the W. H. Smith and Penguin Books Great Reads of the century award in 1995; this edition of Orwell's seminal novella is introduced by Professor Peter Davidson.

Description du livre État : New. Publisher/Verlag: Penguin UK | A Fairy Story | Die Tiere auf der Manor Farm haben die Schnauze voll davon, dass ihre menschlichen Herren sie ausbeuten. Unter dem alten Keiler Old Major, der den Tieren die Produkte ihrer Arbeit zukommen lassen möchte, planen sie die Revolution. Als Old Major stirbt, übernehmen die beiden Schweine Schneeball und Napoleon die Führung. Gemeinsam gehen die Tiere auf die Barrikaden und vertreiben die Menschen schließlich von der Farm. Doch Napoleon ist seine neue Macht zu Kopf gestiegen. Unter dem Deckmantel der neuen Gleichberechtigung aller Tiere baut Napoleon eine brutale und korrupte Gesellschaft auf. Seine Vorstellung von einem vermeintlich neuen System lautet: Alle Tiere sind gleich, aber einige Tiere sind gleicher als andere . "Animal Farm" is a dystopian novella in the form of an allegory by George Orwell. Published in England on 17 August 1945, the book reflects events leading up to and during the Stalin era before World War II. Orwell, a democratic socialist and a member of the Independent Labour Party for many years, was a critic of Joseph Stalin and was suspicious of Moscow-directed Stalinism after his experiences with the NKVD during the Spanish Civil War. In a letter to Yvonne Davet, Orwell described Animal Farm as his novel "contre Stalin". The original title was "Animal Farm: A Fairy Story", but A Fairy Story was dropped by the US publishers for its 1946 publication. Of all the translations during Orwell's lifetime, only Telugu kept the original title. Other variations in the title include: A Satire and A Contemporary Satire. Orwell suggested for the French translation the title Union des républiques socialistes animales, recalling the French name of the Soviet Union, Union des républiques socialistes soviétiques, and which abbreviates URSA, which means "bear" in Latin | Renowned urban artist Shepard Fairey's new look for Orwell's timeless satire'All animals are equal. But some animals are more equal than others.'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 Snowball leads to the animals taking over the farm. Vowing to eliminate the terrible inequities of the farmyard, the renamed Animal Farm is organised 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 unexpected emerges. . .Animal Farm - the history of a revolution that went wrong - is George Orwell's brilliant satire on the corrupting influence of power. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 70 gr | 181x111x6 mm | 112 pp. N° de réf. du libraire K9780141036137
