“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others”.
Animal Farm is a simple tale of what happens when the animals on Mr Jones’s farm get rid of the owner and take the farm over themselves. Their revolution begins with the best of intentions, but is undermined by corruption and greed.
Animal Farm by George Orwell is a satire which demonstrates how people can be manipulated and deceived through propagana. Although it was inspired by and parallels the Russian Revolution and has historical significance, its themes are universal and timeless. It prompts readers to think critically instead of blindly accepting what they are told and understand how information is often distorted and slanted to mislead or scare people into action. Furthermore, it challenges readers to recognize and resist injustices.
